Make-A-Wish Helps 5-Year-Old Boy Be a Ghostbuster for a Day

It might be the Halloween season, but Sacramento ain’t afraid of no ghosts, not after the city teamed up with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to help a 5-year-old live his dream of being a Ghostbuster for a day.

In a heartwarming story we first came across  at KCRA News in Sacramento, London Green, who was born with a congenital heart defect, has already had four open-heart operations in his young life. His father said he spent a total of 121 days in the hospital last year, but one thing that has helped London in his fight has been his love of the Ghostbusters franchise. So Make-A-Wish from Northeastern California and Northern Nevada knew who they were gonna call to help London feel better doing some busting of his own, the good people of Sacramento who helped set up three “ghosts” around the city for him to capture.

London not only got his own uniform replete with goggles, proton pack, and trap, he got to ride in his very own Ecto-1, all before he was given the key to the city. And if that wasn’t exciting enough, Ernie Hudson…oh, we mean Winston Zeddemore himself, recorded a message wishing London well before he headed out.

Great job, Sacramento, and great job, London. Not that we’re surprised he was so good at his new job. You have be brave and have a lot of heart to bust ghosts.To help Make-A-Wish make other dreams come true you can donate here.
