A 5-year-old boy who had a brain cancer could ride a unicorn thanks to a gregarious woman
Wyatt Haas, a 5-year-old boy, forced his mother to take him to a “unicorn store” after seeing one of the mythical creatures participate in a party organized for him by his kindergarten class.
He could have chosen to ride a pony or a horse. However, the little boy chose something much more incredible—a unicorn!
Doctors diagnosed Wyatt with a brain tumor, only a month earlier. His mother could not help but try everything she could to give her son this wonderful experience.
Wyatt could not believe his eyes when he saw his unicorn!
The party they had organized for him, gave the whole class an opportunity to say goodbye to Wyatt before the little boy left for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.
Unfortunately, doctors diagnosed young Wyatt with infant medulloblastoma, the most common malignant brain tumor in children.
St. Jude doctors hoped to be able to remove the tumor without any negative consequences. Jennifer Nielsen, the mother of one of Wyatt’s classmates, organized a party for them days before his surgery..
“His situation affected me a lot because my son is Wyatt’s age and the same thing could have happened to us,” said Nielsen.
The woman’s family owns a cattle farm and one of their horses, Bonanza, with its unusual luminescent white color, was the protagonist of the party. She first painted the horse in the colors of the rainbow. Then she added a cute horn to make it look like a real unicorn.
With just three days’ notice, most of his classmates were able to attend the party for him that was held in a local park on Saturday, 07 December 2019.
Each of his classmates took a ride on the “unicorn”, including Wyatt. Wyatt enjoyed every minute with his favorite unicorn.
