Fairbanks Boy Receives One Shell Of A Wish

KTVF Channel 11, a NBC affiliate television station serving Fairbanks, Alaska, is reporting the Booyakasha TMNT news that a young Fairbanks, AK boy recently got a Turtle-tastic surprise from the volunteers at the Make a Wish Foundation!

5–year–old Jace Herbert and his Mom made a wish to meet Michelangelo, Leonardo, Raphael and Donatello, the heroes in a half shell from Nickelodeon's hit CG-animated series "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", and on Tuesday 29th April 2014, a local Fred Meyer's west store was transformed into a special scavenger hunting ground, which, ending with a Ninja Turtle dance, helped the Make a Wish Foundation send–off Jace to Orlando, Florida to stay at the Nickelodeon Suites Resort and meet the famous reptiles in person Turtle!

Jace was diagnosed with Leukemia in December 2012; something his Mom says has been hard on both him and their family. His mom Ami said, "it's been hard but with my supportive family and friends I'm doing it for that little guy."

Jace didn't know what his full surprise is, but found out at 6pm on Tuesday 29th April 2014.

This is a true celebration for the family as Ami says she received notice in February of this year that Jace has officially gone into remission.
