DAVIE, FL. (WSVN) – A Davie teen fulfilled a heartwarming wish with a donation to a South Florida organization.

Seventeen-year-old cancer survivor Cole Vaccarella made a special donation with Make-A-Wish Southern Florida.

The teen chose to donate $5,000 to the Sarcoma Patient Assistance Fund at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital.

The fund helps the families of children who cannot afford treatment.

“We are meeting Cole’s wish, and this is one of the unique wishes that we get from time to time, and that’s a wish to give back,” said Norman Wedderburn, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish Southern Florida .

“In February I was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in my right humerus,” said Vaccarella. It was pretty devastating for me, but I’ve been through it with these amazing doctors and nurses taking care of me, and I just want others to have that opportunity that I had.”

Cole said it feels good to know that his donation can have a positive effect on others battling cancer.
