Meet Luca

Luca is an 8 year old boy who was diagnosed with leukaemia at age 4

Luca has essentially spent half of his life battling the illness. His mother, Ella, shared that a lot of his early life was spent at home or in the hospital, and he missed out on spending time with friends. For critically ill children like Luca, online gaming offers a safe way to socialise and connect with others.

Luca's wish was for a Nintendo Switch to connect with friends through gaming.

In February 2023, Luca received a bone marrow transplant from his older brother, Ryan - to celebrate 100 days post-transplant, Make-A-Wish NZ granted his wish in June 2023.

"Words can’t adequately express our gratitude. Luca’s wish has truly come true!” Ella said.

Meet Tript

Tript is a 7 year old boy, diagnosed with acute and chronic leukaemia.

Tript is a very brave boy who has endured many extended stays in the hospital, having to undergo scary chemotherapy sessions away from home.

Tript has a true need for speed and as an avid lover of fast cars, it was really no surprise that his wish was for a PS5 with a drifting controller loaded with the best car racing games available!

"Once again, we would like to thank the entire Make-A-Wish team for making Tript's wish come true," said Wish Dad, Simranjeet
