About 20 years ago Komron was coaching high school football and one of his players received his wish for a mountain bike. This was Komron’s first wish experience he says: “I witnessed firsthand the impact a wish has on a child battling a critical illness. The wish experience gave him motivation, hope and confidence for the future.” From that day on Komron has helped so many children’s wishes be granted.
Komron has adopted 10 wishes ensuring that these children get to experience the joy and hope of a wish. Through the COVID-19 pandemic he has been integral is helping Make-A-Wish reimagine how we can safely grant wishes to local children.
