Cohan's wish to have a gaming bedroom makeover

Cohan is an 11-year-old boy living with epithelioid hemangioendothelioma. Cohan’s wish was to have an Adam Sandler themed gaming bedroom.

In August 2016, Make-A-Wish arrived early morning to begin the transformation. The room had been painted in Cohan’s favourite colours -  red and black. When wish granters met with Cohan he mentioned he loved gaming and watching Adam Sandler movies. His wish was to have a bedroom where he could go hangout watch movies, YouTube and game. 

At 11 a.m. Cohan had another surprise. A huge white stretched limo picked him up to bring him to bring him to his favourite store. Once we arrived at EB games we told Cohan that he could do a shopping spree and pick out his favourite game for his new PS4. The look on his face was priceless. He had to hold on to the shelf because he thought he might faint hearing this exciting news! Let the shopping spree begin! After the shopping spree, the manager from EB Game also surprised him with a loot bag filled with games, posters, collectible pins and much more.

Off we went for lunch for some well-deserved poutine. Cohan was very excited to go back home and check out his room!

After many hours of intense labour the Dymon's crew helped transformed the room into the perfect gamer’s bedroom. There were splashes of red everywhere, a popcorn machine, a library of Adam Sandler movies, many video games, an entire electronic system including a PS4 and tons more!

Cohan had the best reaction ever seen at a room makeover. He walked in, put his hands on his head and said, “Is this heaven… this can’t be real!” He would look at a few things grab his head again and say, “is this real!?”


Thank you to Sony, Moe Saab, EB Games, The Brick and Dymon for helping with Cohan's wish.
