Stephen Curry makes dream come true for twins

Ashley Wagner uses her wish on her twin brother


In Sherrills Ford, North Carolina, 14-year-old Ashley Wagner and her twin brother Grant have the closest bond siblings can have.

In 2015, when Ashley was diagnosed with leukemia, Grant was right by her side. As she endured months of chemotherapy treatment, his concern grew and he felt a sense of loss.

“It was like someone being taken from your life for a period of time,” Grant said.

While Grant was feeling the emotional effects of his brave sister’s bout with cancer, Ashley was conjuring a selfless act of her own. She didn’t want Grant to feel alone.

“I was concerned he’d feel left out or something,” Ashley said.

As part of ESPN’s My Wish series on SportsCenter, Ashley requested that her wish be given to Grant. In the latest My Wish feature, Grant learned he would meet Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry.

“I was really impressed that you wanted to share this wish with your twin brother Grant,” Curry told Ashley in a surprise video message.

Ashley and Grant met the two-time NBA MVP and his wife, Ayesha, at the Warriors’ practice facility in downtown Oakland, California, shortly after Ashley surprised Grant with her wish. They played a game of miniature golf with Curry and attended a Warriors game on March 29, when the Golden State defeated the Washington Wizards.
