BROTHERLY LOVE

On muggy, summer nights Colin loves chasing fireflies under the stars. He used to love spending his days in his backyard, playing with his twin brother Ethan. But when Colin was diagnosed with cancer at a young age, days in the great outdoors turned into nights at the hospital. But, always adventurous and optimistic, his love for the great outdoors never faded.

 

A WORLD OF POSSIBILITIES

At first, Colin thought about wishing to be Batman, his favorite superhero. Then he wanted a playhouse in his backyard that he could share with his brother. But when his wish volunteers came to visit, he knew that his one true wish was to have a golden doodle puppy wrapped in a big red bow. “He is already so excited about his new dog,” said one wish volunteer after their visit. Colin’s new best friend would be his constant companion whether he was gazing at the stars or stuck inside.
  

WELCOME HOME COSMO

As Colin eagerly awaited his new friend, he continued treatments at the hospital. His wish fairy sent “Pupdates” throughout the process to keep his spirits up. When they found the perfect puppy, the only thing left to do was surprise Colin! His wish was complete with dog treats, toys, and even a puppy training class! Finally, the moment was here! Colin met his new best friend and they instantly connected. 

“I haven’t seen him that excited in a while,” said Colin’s mom, “Cosmo has given my son a new hope!”


Cosmo has given my son a new hope! ”

— Colin's Mom
