On December 12, Macy’s held its sixth annual Believe Day and the Make-A-Wish Foundation joined forces with the department store to deliver a wish to Las Vegas teen Caden Roberts at the Las Vegas Fashion Show Mall. The actual event took place between 7 and 8 a.m. before the Macy’s store opened and a large crowd of family, well wishers, Macy’s staff, press and Make-A-Wish representatives were there to support the teenager on his special day. Caden was not the only child to have a wish granted on Friday, over 50 children who have been diagnosed with terminal conditions also had wishes come true on the day.
