Diagnosed with cancer in 2015, “I missed a lot of my life because of chemo,” says Daniel, “but fixing cars was always on my mind.” The teen's ambitions helped him stay focused on the future – and for his wish, he requested a full set of professional tools from Snap-on Incorporated to help him pursue his passion.
Returning home from breakfast with his mother on a Saturday morning, Daniel discovers a crowd of family and friends. Before he knows it, around the corner comes the bright red Snap-on Rock-and-Roll Cab Express truck! Snap-on representatives present Daniel with a complete collection of tools and a signature Snap-on tool chest. Daniel is giddy as he takes it all in and tours the company’s rolling showroom. “It’s amazing! I wasn’t expecting all of this!” His parents, grandparents, and teachers watch proudly, knowing that a new door has opened for Daniel with the granting of his wish.
After the crowd disperses, Daniel spends hours unpacking his tools. As he carefully looks them over, he realizes all that he can accomplish with them. With his cancer now in remission and the professional tools he dreamed of now in his hands, Daniel can shift his career plans into high gear!
Daniel’s wish is one of our first wishes to be granted in Rhode Island during our 30th anniversary year!
