Ivan's Saxophone Wish

Ivan using his brand new Yamaha Alto Saxophone!

“ Due to him being in treatment it took all of his energy, but it just showed how appreciative and excited he was for his new saxophone! ”

  • Ivan , 16

    • Ewing's Sarcoma
    • to have a saxophone!
  • Wish to have

When 16-year-old Ivan thought of his wish, he knew he wanted a saxophone! Why? For him, it is the next logical step in his musical career as he already plays the clarinet and the two instruments are similar. Both Ivan and his dad believe that it will help with treatment.

Ivan took the opportunity to surprise all present by spontaneously playing Jingle Bells! Due to him being in treatment it took all of his energy, but it just showed how appreciative and excited he was for his new saxophone!

  • Ivan with some of the important people that helped with this wish - Wish Coordinator, Stephanie Payton, Ivan, Sergej (Ivan's Dad), Chris (Yamaha representative), Rick (owner of Fort Bend Music Center), and Betty (Manager at Fort Bend Music Center Stafford).

  • Ivan's wish was granted

  • Ivan, excited to embark on his wish!

  • Ivan and Dad, ready to go
