Jaxon's Wish

Jaxon's Wish

“ Jaxon and his family want to pay it forward and raise funds to grant the wishes of local children. ”

For 9-year-old Brewers fan Jaxon, his wish to have a miniature version of Miller Park became an opportunity to show Major League thanks for the support of his small town.

Even though Jaxon comes from a small town, he’s always had big league dreams. After a year-long battle with brain cancer, the 9-year-old Brewers fan wanted to do something big to commemorate his clean bill of health. Moreover, he and his family wanted to pay forward all the kindness they'd received from their neighbors in Richland Center, Wisconsin throughout months of difficult radiation and chemotherapy treatments.

After hearing about the Little Fenway Wiffleball Park built in Vermont, Jaxon knew that he wanted to have his own version of Milwaukee's Miller Park. It would be a cool place for him and his friends to play ball, but could also be used to hold special events and fundraisers to give back to the community that had shown them so much support.

Most of all, Jaxon's family hopes that Brew Crew Park can help raise funds to help grant the wishes of other local children who are living with life-threatening medical conditions. It's a way for Jaxon's wish to keep making an impact on his community -- and for his community to share the power of a wish® with children in need.

It is through a child's eyes that I've seen the most joy and love in my life! How can anyone not be inspired by a child who has experienced so much in such a short time yet lives to "give back"?! How incredible is this child?! Jaxon you are a true inspiration to everyone you meet and to the lives of so many people whom you've never met but who shared in making this wish come true for you! That's what its all about...giving back! If we never gave back or shared our lives with others by helping out, it wouldn't mean a thing! Everyone's tombstone will be marked with two dates...birth and death...and in between them will be a dash. Thank you for using your dash to be an inspiration to everyone!
