Make-A-Wish® Northeast New York wish kid Sebastian Lasher of Gloversville got to play the game of a lifetime, spending hours online engaged in Hermitcraft thanks to a special invite from Mumbo Jumbo, the UK-based YouTube personality who makes videos on the popular voxel-based game “Minecraft.”
Mumbo Jumbo, who has nearly 2.7 million subscribers, grew impressed with the 15-year-old’s gaming skills and technical knowledge: “You are better than everyone here!”
For Sebastian, a gaming enthusiast diagnosed with cancer, the day at home gaming with the personality across the ocean proved magical.
“Make-A-Wish went above and beyond to make my wish come true, and when it did it was better than I could have dreamed,” Sebastian said. “I am forever and always grateful for all they have done for me and the other kids.”
The wish equally touched Sebastian’s mother, Holly Lasher.
“I am beyond grateful for Make-a-Wish,” she said. “Watching my son’s wish come true, as he smiled, positively lit up the entire room.
“Even with an outside-of-the-box wish, Make-A-Wish tried to make it an outstanding experience for him,” she continued. “They even worked with Make-A-Wish UK to deliver such an amazing experience to my son. Thank you so much, to everyone that makes Make-A-Wish possible.”
