Young cancer patient’s selfless wish benefits school


Greg Melendy, who is suffering with a particularly stubborn cancer (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia), made an unusual wish when Make-A-Wish came to visit him.

The rest of the family had pushed a little for a trip to Australia or France, but understood when Greg decided he wanted to help the music department where he had sung in the choir for almost four years.

“We were all for it,” his mom says, sitting at the family’s well-used dining room table. “Make-A-Wish is something that’s supposed to help a child get through treatment, and I think this did.”
