Roman's Wish to Meet Thomas the Tank Engine

Roman's wish to meet Thomas the Train!

“ This wish was the greatest thing for Roman. ”

Four year old Roman wanted nothing more than to meet Thomas the Train. After all, Thomas is one of his favorite characters - he loves his television show and all of his movies. Make-A-Wish created an extra-special day for Roman with a train theme, exciting surprises and much, much more!

          Four-year-old Roman is an energetic child who, like most boys his age, loves trains. After being diagnosed with optic nerve glioma, a type of malignant brain tumor, Roman never let his positive spirit dwindle. His greatest wish was to be able to meet Thomas the Train and all of his friends.
          Make-A-Wish Georgia helped to arrange this wish and created a day full of surprises for Roman and his family. The day started with lots of Thomas themed presents including a huge gift bag filled with toy trains from the Thomas series. Then Roman and his family set off on their journey to meet Thomas. Roman spent the whole morning enjoying the attractions at the railroad, including riding the cranky cars and pump cars. The rest of the day, Roman and his family were able to enjoy the unique wild animal park at Chehaw, and endless recreational activities! Roman was absolutely speechless. The trip will be a treasure that he will never forget.
