Alijah is a 12-year-old boy from Columbus, Ohio. He is staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Winfield, IL with his mom, Flor. Alijah was diagnosed with a germ cell tumor on October 11, 2015 and is currently being treated at the Chicago Proton Center in Warrenville, IL.
Flor participated in our last Art Night at RMH in Winfield and she enjoyed the painting activity. We shared information about the Alyssa Alvin Foundation for Hope Gift Recipient Program and she said, “I’m going to tell my son, Alijah, about it because he likes to listen to music and I think he would like some Beats headphones.” Flor was happy for her son and went on the AAFH website to begin the process of submitting the request for Alijah.
Within a week of receiving the gift request form, Yoli delivered a pair of black Beats headphones to Alijah. He looked really cool with them on and we hope he enjoys listening to his music through the Beats for a long time!
