Volunteer Spotlight - Jake Ochroch

Aubrey Widmayer with her wish granters.
On an October day in 2004, 10-year-old Jake Ochroch was in his hometown of Philadelphia completely starstruck. He was meeting one of his heroes: Bruce Springsteen. Jake had just finished a tough year-long battle with cancer and he and his family, all of whom are big Springsteen fans, couldn’t wait to meet the musician on his Vote For Change Tour. The Make-A-Wish Philadelphia, Delaware and Susquehanna Valley chapter granted Jake the experience, and his Make-A-Wish journey didn’t end that night, it was just beginning.
