Zariff, Your Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man!

"You are much stronger than you think you are. Trust me." - Spider-Man (Comics)

Age: 4 (2020)

Illness: Neuroblastoma

Wish: To have a Spider-Man-themed birthday party

Wish Day: 8th August 2020

Zariff, a precocious and bright four-year-old boy, is a huge Spiderman fan. Despite being diagnosed with neuroblastoma when he was just one year old, he is just as easygoing, chatty, and curious as others his age. Our wish granters found out that Zariff would love a Spiderman-themed party to celebrate his fourth birthday with friends and family.

A week before the Wish Day, Zariff received a custom-ordered costume, which consisted of the latest ‘Far from Home’ series Spiderman suit complete with gloves and a mask. Zariff proudly sent us a video to show off his new suit which fit perfectly! On the 8th of August, our volunteers arrived early to adorn Zariff’s home with themed decorations. A Spiderman cake was the centrepiece of the party. Soon, Zariff's friends arrived in their own Spiderman themed outfits and the party began!

Soon, an unexpected guest rang the doorbell - Spiderman himself had arrived! Zariff was astonished and starry-eyed to see his hero walking towards him, it was an unforgettable moment! The party carried on with lots of cheers and fun and photo opportunities with the masked hero.

Zariff’s mom commented, “Alhamdulillah, completed the ceremony for mama's child.. thank you team #makeawish for making Zariff's dream.. he was excited when spiderman came.. mama's tears melted looking at the happiness of the young child.. everything was planned so perfectly..”

We hope you cherish the unforgettable memories from this day, Zariff, and once again, happy fourth birthday!
