One 14-year-old Stoneham boy recently saw his wish become real, thanks in part to a landmark local business.
Ever since Shawn Henry Kirk lost a big chunk of his skull two years ago when doctors removed a grapefruit-sized brain tumor, Turner, Pierce and Fultz’s Joe King Fultz says he’s wanted the ultimate gaming computer system, a wish whose fulfillment was coordinated by the Make a Wish Foundation’s Janice Thigpen.
Thigpen and Fultz were both on hand recently, when his crew delivered a new computer desk, gaming chair, and Lenovo Computer to the Kirk’s home and set everything up, much to Shawn Henry’s delight, and, it turns out, Joe King’s consternation.
King admitted he’s kind-of jealous about the neat looking, “pretty trick stuff” Kirk received. And that chunk of Shawn Henry’s skull that’s been missing since he was twelve is set to finally be replaced this summer, with a brand new skull section created by a 3-d printer.
