Woody shops at his favorite mall

Woody goes shopping

“ I've never been able to go into a store and just pick out whatever. ”


- Woody

Make-A-Wish® Eastern North Carolina grants 15 year-old Woody with a shopping experience at Cross Creek Mall in his hometown of Fayetteville.

Woody had been out of school and underwent chemotherapy in 2012 for Ewing’s Sarcoma which is where cancer is localized in the bone and soft tissue.  He wished to go shopping at his two favorite stores, Finish Line and Journey’s.

“I have never been able to go into a store and just pick out whatever, and now I have that chance,” Gavin said. 

Woody’s family attended his shopping spree and his sister helped him pick out his purchases. Woody showed his benevolent spirit that afternoon; instead of only picking items for himself he also shopped for his younger siblings and relatives.
