KAMC's 'Wish Wednesday' series shares the stories of 'wish kids' right here on the South Plains and gives you an inside look into the great things the Make-A-Wish chapter of the Texas Plains South is doing for those kids with life-threatening illnesses.
Keyshawn Johnson will be a high school freshman, but when he was just 12, he got the chance to meet the San Diego Chargers football team.
His pediatrician introduced him to the Make-A-Wish Foundation because Keyshawn suffers from a disorder known as ITP, a condition that dissolves his platelets.
Check out Keyshawn's story by clicking on the video box to the left.
It costs about $7,000 on average to grant a wish like Keyshawn's wish.
If you would like to donate, and remember all the money stays right here on the South Plains, contact Make-A-Wish at 785-9474 or visit www.facebook.com/wishlubbock.
