Meet Cole Delisle: Inspirational Grand Marshal of Concord's Holiday Parade

 

Cole Delisle is a 14-year-old boy from Portsmouth dealing with a rare form of cancer. He also happens to be a HUGE Star Wars fan (just like me).

His dad, knowing this, contacted Make-A-Wish NH to see if there was some way they could make his wish of being a Stormtrooper, come true. They were able to have a special suit made up, just for him of his favorite character. You can see in the video just how excited Cole was when they unveiled it!

Now, still dealing with his own daily challenges, Cole enjoys using his suit to bring joy and happiness to other kids dealing with cancer and other childhood issues. Cole loves the smiles that he brings to the kids faces.

While Cole stopped by to visit the studio to chat about his journey, we asked him to be the Grand Marshal in Concord's 66th annual Christmas Parade on Loudon road. He obviously said YES!

Join us at the parade and say hello to Cole and the rest of his Star Wars buddies marching with Make-A-Wish NH and spreading joy and hope throughout the galaxy!
