My friend’s daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2015. When diagnosed it was very traumatic for this happy, healthy 15 year old. During the process of deciding on a wish it gave her strength, hope and something to look forward to. In November 2016 she was granted a wish to meet Melissa McCarthy a favorite actress that she admired. She has been in remission since March 2016. This experience has forever impacted her outlook on life and the memories she and her family made are unforgettable.
This year I am gathering my courage and participating in Make-A-Wish® Rope for Hope, rappelling down from great heights, to help grant the wishes of children living with life-threatening medical conditions. A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their life-threatening medical condition. For many of them, it marks a turning point in their fight against their illnesses.
You can help make a difference too! Your support will allow the Foundation to continue to create powerful wish experiences, improving a child’s state of mind, replacing fear with happiness and helping them to feel like a normal kid again.
