Deran wishes to have a shopping spree

“ I chose this wish so that I could have fun with my mom ”

Let’s get ready to rumble! As an avid Miami HEAT basketball fan, Deran wished to have a shopping spree in Miami. Once they arrived in sunny South Florida, Deran and his family received royal treatment with a limousine ride to their hotel. Grinning from ear to ear, he was able to temporarily forget the struggles he faces with his metabolic disorder.

After spending their first evening resting up, he and his family began his shopping day with a delicious breakfast at Ole Restaurant, a restaurant inspired by the rich local flavors of Miami. Fueled up and ready to go, Deran took on Dolphin Mall to conquer the exciting world of shoes, clothes, games and sports gear. His favorite store was GameStop, where he was greeted by all different kinds of video games and technology. The Nike store also greeted him with enthusiasm and awesome sneakers!

Ultimately, Deran didn’t just wish for a shopping spree for all the cool merchandise he could buy: he says he wanted to spend quality time with his mother. “I chose this wish so that I could have fun with my mom.”
