Brandon's wish to have a home movie theater

Brandon is a seventeen-year-old boy who has a passion for movies and television shows.  Since Brandon is living with Congenital Muscular Dystrophy, travelling to the movies is difficult for him.  Because of this, Brandon wished for a home movie theater, where he could spend time watching his favorite movies in the comfort of his own home.  On April 18th his wish came true!

After several weeks, countless hours and a lot of hard work Brandon’s wish to have his very own home movie theater was completed! The construction involved transforming the family’s back porch into a one-of-a-kind theater customized just for Brandon.  The new theater includes a popcorn machine, theater style seating, a new 70” television, a red carpet, a refreshments area, and is fully equipped with surround sound. 

Brandon is thrilled to finally have a home theater where his love of movies can be indulged and he doesn’t have to worry about the difficulty of travelling to the movie theaters. After the reveal of Brandon’s home movie theater, his mother was overwhelmed and said, “I'm sitting here with tears, it all just hit me after hearing a belly laugh I haven't heard in such a long time.  I honestly cannot recall the last time I heard that. Thank you all for your amazing gift and that belly laugh.” He now has a room where he and his family can relax and unwind, and Brandon is so thankful that Make-A-Wish was able to make his wish come true!
