  Jesse's online shopping wish
 
 
  Teen uses wish to give back to others  
 
  A wish-come-true often brings out a child’s true spirit. Seventeen-year-old Jesse had been in the hospital for five months battling complications of leukemia. His wish was to have an online shopping spree not just to buy things for himself, but for his family. "They sleep inside the hospital with me; it's been almost five months that we've been here and I would like to give them thanks," said Jesse with tears in his eyes. He didn’t stop there. He also wanted to do something for the other kids at the hospital. Read about how Jesse’s wish inspired some big retailers to help.
