Joshua has a rare genetic heart disorder, the Make-A-Wish Foundation heard his story and was able to grant him with a shopping spree.

 

Nine-year-old Joshua Walters rode to the mall in a big black limo and once he got out of the limo he had the time of his life! Joshua went store after store shopping for what he wanted and grabbing some gifts for his family members as well.

At La Palmera mall young Joshua Walters was able to shop for whatever any 9-year-old could want.

 

Joshua has a rare genetic heart disorder, the Make-A-Wish Foundation heard his story and was able to grant him with a shopping spree.

Gamestop donated $400.

While shopping for games and consoles, Joshua shared with KRIS 6 News how his favorite basketball player is Michael Jordan.

Therefore, it was only fitting to stop by Champs Sports to get his shoes and few more items along the way like a Michael Jordan cap and backpack.

Joshua’s time at the mall had some sweet treats too, like a cookie cake along with a gift card from La Palmera.

Christmas is on the way and Joshua wanted to make sure that his siblings were able to have gifts too.

“Already today he has shown what a big heart he has. He’s already got a few gifts for his family.” Says Make-A-Wish volunteer Rebecca Esparza.

Before taking his picture with Santa, Walter’s last stop was at Build-A-Bear Workshop.

Joshua’s father Charles Walters says he was happy to see his sons’ wishes granted.

“He deserves it like I said he has to go through some stuff in his life I’m just glad to see he can be a kid,” says Charles Walters.
