GFC Partners With Make-A-Wish® Wisconsin to Make Azman’s Wish a Reality

Milwaukee, WI, July 24, 2017 -- The Gordon Flesch Company (GFC) partnered with the Make-A-Wish® Wisconsin to help make Azman’s wish come true. Azman, an 11 year-old boy with a life-threatening illness, wanted nothing more than a computer to play the latest video games on. While his mother loved seeing the happiness video games brought Azman, she wanted to ensure he had all the tools necessary to succeed in school. Nick Clark, a Managed IT Support Specialist for GFC, helped strike that perfect balance of fun and learning.
Azman received the latest Asus i7 laptop computer, along with an Epson small-in-one wireless printer, a desk and other peripherals from Make-A-Wish Wisconsin while GFC installed the newest updates, Microsoft Office 365 and the latest games Azman couldn’t wait to play. Despite the language barrier, as Azman and his family speak Burmese, Nick and Azman were able to forgo the interpreter and communicate wonderfully, and before long were laughing and high fiving each while playing games.
Nick had an amazing time enhancing Azman’s wish by providing the latest technology in games and educational software. “This was an honor, and I was ecstatic to be a part of something so special!” Nick said. The moments they shared together will last a lifetime for Azman, his family and everyone involved. The Gordon Flesch company is proud to support such an amazing cause and help enhance Azman’s wish.
