Hoku Props and Make-A-Wish Arizona Grant a Wish for Lich King Armor
The Make-A-Wish Foundation is well known for its mission to grant wishes to critically ill children. When Luke, who has leukemia, wished for a suit of Lich King armor,
teamed up with
and kitted out this young Arthas fan.
Good wish, Luke! Your armor is awesome!

Huge props to you all!
EDIT: Luke's dad has provided a couple of really awesome pictures showing Luke in the finished armor. He also added a little insight into Luke's case:
Both Luke and his older sister suffered from Leukemia. She was diagnosed with it when she was two and a half, him when he was 17. Both endured 2-years worth of chemotherapy.
Leukemia is what they call a "liquid tumor" disease. It's cancer, but not the type that grows a solid tumor. Instead, it effects the bone marrow where your blood is produced. Leukemia causes your bone marrow to produce unusable blood cells. So as a result you don't have hemoglobin to carry oxygen to your organs, no white blood cells to fight infections, and no platelets to heal injuries (think scabs, but also on the inside of your body.) So basically you will die if it's left untreated.
We are very lucky in that both of our children survived. Luke is honestly one the toughest people I know and endured such grueling hardship in those two years. I love that kid!
You can really see the fantastic detail that Hoku put into this!
Thanks, Luke's Dad!
