Drake Goes for a Nintendo Shopping Spree in NYC

Drake , Texas

In May of 2012, Drake, a 15 year old wish child from Texas, wanted to visit New York City and do a shopping spree at the Nintendo Store at the Rockefeller Center.  When Drake was 6, he survived medulloblastoma (brain cancer).  At age 13, he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma of the jaw; necessitating the removal of his entire lower jaw.  Treatment has been long and outcome not what they were hoping.  Drake will not be able to get teeth again until his body heals which could be an indefinite period of time.  Drake enjoyed the shopping spree with a $1,000 gift card from Nintendo.  Courtesy of many supporters, he and his family enjoyed sightseeing and visiting the famous institutions like The Empire State Building, The American Museum of Natural History special tour of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.  Drake also enjoyed a special treat of seeing a performance of the Blue Man Group.  He went to sleep that night without washing his hands to preserve the blue paint from his high-five!
