A wish comes true for Manito teen

Tuesday, November 13, 2007


MANITO - Rebekah Nickerson has wanted to see singer Garth Brooks in concert for the past eight years, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation made sure she got to - twice.

Not only did she get to see his show, she shared a stage with Brooks and his band.

Hey, thanks for posting. Manito is just 15 minutes away from me. It's a small world. Way to go, Garth!

Wow, it just goes to show you how much of a heart Garth has.. This is such an amazing story.. And she is from a little small town in IL which makes it even better, nobody seems to ever get that lucky being from a small town.. My hometown is about 15 or 20 minutes from Manito.. It truly is a small world :))

I just love those stories!!!

Me too!! I can just imagine how emotional Garth was.
If anyone deserves their dreams to come true it's the kids at Make-A-Wish.
