SUNRISE (CBSMiami) – Kids from South Florida, and the world, have a good time at a tough time of their lives while battling cancer, thanks to the group “My Wish 4 U,” but someone stole a key element to that happiness Monday morning.
The MyWish4U.org trailer, according to Sunrise Police, was stolen from 10130 NW 47th Street in Sunrise on Monday at 6 AM.
Joe Zevuloni runs the charity. He’s stunned that someone could steal the group’s mobile kitchen which is used to prepare special meals for kids and their families while the group takes them on a trip of a lifetime in Orlando.
“I don’t even think an animal can do that,” Zevuloni said. “This is a personal attack against children that are the most vulnerable state of their life, they’re battling a disease that is, in some cases, terminal.”
A black/gray newer model truck with a possible light bar on the roof was seen towing the trailer from the location of the incident.
Sky Randall saw the trailer being driven away–but had no idea she was witnessing a crime.
“It was just driving,” Randall said. “I never would imagine someone stealing the trailer.”
Three-year-old Yoval Rosenzveig, battling cancer since he was 2-months-old, recalls eating from the food truck. His family came from Israel and the mobile ktichen was crucial part of their trip.
“For somebody to make the decision to take it, you can’t, you really can’t imagine what would go through somebody’s head to make the decision to take something like that,” said Jackie Rosenzveig, Yoval’s mother.
Just by looking at the trailer, which has the non-profit’s name and cartoons painted on the outside, there’s no question that it’s used to help sick children.
Now, some kids are using signs, urging whoever took the trailer to bring it back.
Zevuloni is offering a $5000 reward.
Anyone with information is urged to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
