For the Love of John
John’s last Christmas wish was to receive a bicycle. His family at the time could not afford one. Because he was not expected to survive his disease, others thought it was not an appropriate gift for him. Although many showered him with other gifts, there was no bicycle under the tree. John believed, when he did not get the bicycle, it was because all hope was gone. It was a message to him that he was not going to live and brought him great sadness. John’s love for what every child enjoys, the freedom and joy of riding a bicycle, inspires in his memory and offers a bike to any child requesting one, even if their prognosis is poor. Every child deserves hope.
