Jaela: I wish to have a Sport Court in my backyard


“ Jaela's wish for a Sport Court brought her joy ”

An active and talented athlete, there is nothing more fun for 14-year-old Jaela than playing sports six days a week for hours at a time, never missing a scheduled athletic event. Although she tires easily these days due to her battle with leukemia, she remains strong and faces cancer head on. 

When presented with an opportunity for a wish, Jaela considered many options. From traveling to faraway destinations to season tickets for her favorite sports team, Jaela considered it all. In the end, Jaela chose a wish that reflects her love for sports. She wished to have a Sports Court in her backyard. 

Jaela’s Sports Court now provides a place for her to get out and do what she loves the most. At any time, she can play street hockey, basketball, volleyball and more on the court. During the winter, Jaela plans to fill her multi-use court with ice and skate with friends as they prep for hockey season. Her Sports Court will not only keep her active spirit alive but will also provide hope, strength, and joy when she needs it most.
