EAGLE MOUNTAIN, Utah – Wyatt Page, a 12-year-old Eagle Mountain boy with terminal brain cancer, is giving back to other patients with his last dying wish.

Wyatt said he wanted to give other young patients the feeling of home or distraction while at the hospital. The initial goal was to create 89 comfort kit for each of Wyatt’s radiation treatments. But the project only grew from there. 

“We’ve always wanted to somehow give back,” said Emily Page, Wyatt’s mother. “The only thing that Wyatt has ever asked for is comfort.”

Wyatt was diagnosed in October and told his brain cancer is inoperable.

“We’re two months in to a four-month prognosis and we just don’t know from day to day,” said Doug Page, Wyatt’s dad. “We’re enjoying every minute we can together.”

But the news of a terminal illness didn’t stop Wyatt and his parents from helping kids who are also going through cancer treatments.
