Tucker's wish for a custom tack and saddle

Tucker on his wish

“ “My aunt says that I was born with a hat on my head and a rope in my hand.” ”

Seventeen year old Tucker loves watching the Huskers, hanging out with his friends, and the color orange. Calling himself a cowboy, he likes to rope, listen to country music, and go hunting. Tucker’s love of horses is what inspired his wish. “My aunt says that I was born with a hat on my head and a rope in my hand.”

Tucker is battling acute myeloid leukemia, but he continues to do the thing he loves- riding horses. His wish was to get a custom tack, saddle, and boots made just for him. That wish came true in November 2014, when Tucker and his family were able to spend some time together and go on a western shopping trip, where Tucker received his custom made Powder River wade saddle. This wish allowed Tucker and his family to spend time together away from the difficulties of life and the stress of a hospital, and create memories that would last forever.

“My aunt says that I was born with a hat on my head and a rope in my hand.” ”
