Richard Branson recently made a wish come true for a young boy in San Diego.
“Thomas Edward has already gone through an awful lot in his 12 years, having survived leukaemia,” blogged Sir Richard. "The Make-A-Wish Foundation – who grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions – asked him what he wanted to do, he said he wanted to become a CEO.
“When I was in San Diego recently, we managed to catch up, and Thomas told me how he is looking forward to becoming a successful businessman in the future – I have no doubt he will achieve his goals. He was inquisitive, attentive and asked smart questions – three skills every good CEO needs.
“Young Thomas even asked me a question in front of more than 2,000 people. He said: ‘What do you value most in life – and why?’
“My reply? Good health for my family and loved ones – in the end, health is everything.”
