Eighth grader is granted wish PDF Print E-mail


Everyone has wishes and dreams. Eric Sandberg, an eighth grader at Perkins County Middle School, had his wish come true thanks to the Nebraska, Colorado and California Make A Wish organization.
Eric, the son of Donna Harger Sandberg Glunz of Madrid and the late Russ Sandberg, is 14 years old and has cerebral palsy.
On Aug. 17, Eric, his mother, grandfather Larry Harger and friend Colton Schmidt flew to California to attend World Wrestling Entertainment Monday Night Raw live wrestling, and to meet the WWE star Ryback. The group also met WWE stars John Cena and Diva wrestler Kaitlyn.
While in California they enjoyed a ride in a limo and a day at Knotts Berry Farms and Huntington Beach.
