THE STORY:

I remember sitting in the PICU staring at Luke when our nurse practitioner walked in to go over his central line care.  I asked if he could go swimming, he loved swimming and summer was just starting.  She said not while he had the line, but when we went on our Make-A-Wish® trip he could.  I looked at her and stomach fell to the ground - "you think he's going to die?!" I screamed!  She quickly said "No! Any child with a life threatening illness can be granted a wish, not just terminal patients!"


I dreamed of that trip every night.  I dreamt of him being happy again.  Of me being happy again.  When he found out his wish to meet Elsa had been granted we planned - one year later we were PLANNING things again.  When your child has cancer, you make no plans.  Every day is a guessing game.  That trip was a turning point for our family.  That trip was when we ALL stopped looking at him as fragile and on death's doorstep.  That trip was when our family began to LIVE again.  


Did you know that doctors actually prescribe Wishes as part of the healing process??? They are THAT powerful.  I need your help.  I need your help to pay it forward.  HELP me heal another child.  I need to raise $8,000 (the average cost of a Wish) to give another mom the hope and light that Make-A-Wish® gave me.  I need to raise $8,000 so that another child, like our Luke, can begin to heal.  I always say that organ donation saved Luke's life, but Make-A-Wish® saved his soul.


Make-A-Wish® grants the wishes of children battling life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. 

When you support Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana, your gift will help grant the wishes of local children who are battling life-threatening medical conditions.
