Kid Uses Make-A-Wish Opportunity To Thank The Children's Hospital That Saved His Life

September 10, 2015

A 12-year-old boy from Eagan, Minnesota was given a wish from the Make-A-Wish Foundation to do anything he wanted. He accepted the offer, but he didn't use the wish for himself.

Lucas Hobbs was battling a stage three cancer known as Hodgkin's lymphoma - a blood cancer that starts in the lymphatic system. Hobbs underwent extensive treatment therapy... and came out a winner.

One thing he'll never forget about his stay in the hospital was the inability to enjoy a basic meal. With that in mind, Hobbs decided it was time to give back in his own special way.

With the help of the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Minnesota Food Truck Association, Hobbs commandeered a fleet of food trucks to feed as many doctors, patients, and staff as he could to thank the hospital he credits with saving his life.

In an interview with NBC, Hobbs said: "When I was sick, people brought me food from our church, and it was really nice of them. So I asked my parents if I could use my wish to serve others. [And now I can] give back the kindness that everybody gave me when I was sick."
