DANIEL Heise got the surprise of a lifetime when the Make-A-Wish foundation gave him $1000 to spend at JB HI-FI.
In order to grant Daniel his most cherished wish, Make-A-Wish foundation gave him the shopping spree he wouldn't forget.
Daniel was diagnosed with T-cell Lymphoma, cancer of the lymphatic, system in December 2013.
After an X-ray found an 8-10cm tumour pressing on his heart and lungs, he was flown to the Royal Children's Hospital in Brisbane within the hour.
The shock discovery resulted in Daniel's mother and four siblings moving to Brisbane for nine months while Daniel underwent extensive chemotherapy.
The collaboration of treatments, oral chemotherapy, tablets and steroids, the monstrous tumour was significantly reduced to the size of a walnut within two months of treatment.
Though the family returned to their Gin Gin home in 2014, Daniel still receives chemotherapy here in Bundaberg through a port in his chest and has to travel to Brisbane every three months to have the chemo put in his spine.
The day started with Daniel and his family driving to Cafe 1928 from Gin Gin where they were picked up in a stretch limo and taken to JB HI-FI.
But before the spree began, Daniel was given a complimentary Apple Macbook Pro laptop and an IPhone 6s.
Due to his love for playing and creating music and the range of great gadgets on offer, Daniel had no problem fulfilling his wish.
"Absolutely amazing." Maree Heise, Daniel's mother said.
"JB HI-FI went above and beyond for Daniel and his siblings; they really couldn't have done more to cater to them and to get the best value.
"It was one of those days that where you're just covered in goosebumps and are about to cry you're just so happy and overwhelmed."
She said Daniel bought a remote control drone, launch key mini, karaoke machine with lights to fill a room, a DVD player and a top of the range, portable Bluetooth speaker.
"He was a very happy 15 year old," Julie-Ann Patterson, member of the Make-A-Wish foundation Bundaberg, said.
After the shopping spree, Daniel and his family had lunch at Cafe 1928 and were taken on a tour of Bundaberg in the limo, getting to see Bargara and the Hummock, among other places.
"These kids go through hell... and its things like this, the Make-A-Wish foundation, that bring a ray of sunshine in the darkness," Ms Patterson said.
Daniel has received three years worth of chemotherapy and is to go into remission in April next year.
