"at the beginning of treatment we say give us three wishes. three wishes you would like. at the end of treatment, when they've done such a good job of showing up every day, and holding still, or doing all the things they need to do, one of those wishes is going to be granted," family nurse practitioner katarina steacy said.teddy got all three wishes."he wished for a kindle, curious george pajamas and mac n cheese," wind said. his family got one, too. "miracle after miracle, he is where he is today," wind said.
