On August 25, 2012, when I skydive along with the rest of the Wish Jump 2012 team, I’ll have no fear as I step out of the plane. I know that my Guardian Angel Xavier will be right there, soaring alongside of me like a true Superhero, until I land safely on the ground.
Xavier LOVED superheroes, especially Batman and Robin. Confined to the home because of his illness, his Wish was for a Batman and Robin room makeover. Not only was his bedroom made into his very own Batcave (complete with a red Bat Phone for those important calls from the Commissioner), Xavier also got to meet Batman and Robin, and spend time with them in his new room.
Just seven months later, at the age of five, Xavier ended his very courageous fight with mitochondrial disease. He earned his wings at home in his room, surrounded by superheroes, just like he wished. The family now uses his room as their family room, where they watch Xavier’s favorite Batman movies together, play games, and keep his spirit alive.
