Teen gets his wish granted by Shelton business
Jonathan French, 14, was given a laptop and a special day, courtesy of Precision Computer Services, who teamed with Make-A-Wish Connecticut.
The mission of Make-A-Wish is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Jonathan, of Hartford, has from Sickle Cell Anemia, causing him to spend much of his time in the hospital.
On a recent Tuesday, Jonathan arrived by limo to a party hosted in his honor at Precision Computer Services in Shelton. He was treated to a
laptop, lessons how to use it and a celebration.
For Jonathan, a laptop computer was his one true wish. Having his own computer will save him numerous trips to the library to work on school assignments. Jonathan plans to enter the medical field when he graduates from high school.
