Zayvon meets the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center

Zayvan and his family ready to watch the Brooklyn Nets

“ The timing of the wish could not have been more perfect. ”


- Wish Granter, Jamie Barr

It was a special day for wish child Zayvon when he got to meet the Brooklyn Nets. As a gigantic Nets fan, he usually watches the team play on his television, this time he had the  experience of a life time watching them at the Barclays Center in person.  

While meeting the players before the game, Zayvon was very shy at first. He soon met seven players including Deron Williams. Zayvon received autographed basketballs and hats plus had his photo taken with them too - it was a dream made reality! 

Due to Nets player, Kris Humphries injury before the game Zayvon was unable to retrieve his autograph. However, Nets personnel promised to get Kris’ autograph for Zayvon and mail it to him directly.  

Soon after having his wish granted, Zayvon received word that he was ready to receive his kidney transplant. The timing of the wish could not have come at a more perfect time. 

Though the wish started off a little on the shy side, it gave Zayvon hope, strength and joy for another day. Who knew it would bring him a new Kidney.
