Please Give to the Make-A-Wish Foundation

Our 9-year-old daughter is a Make-A-Wish survivor.  This past winter, the Make-A-Wish Foundation granted our daughter’s wish and sent us to Hawaii for almost 2 weeks (and yes, she picked Hawaii by herself and we had no idea!).

During the summer she endured what can only be described as extreme abdominal surgery for which their was great risk.  She spent about 2 months in the hospital — half of that time in the PICU with over a dozen tubes and lines at times.  Her medical journey is not over yet as challenges remain (currently she is on tube feedings and has a severely slipped disc), but she is on a good trajectory at this time.

I can’t begin to explain how my impressions and understanding of the Make-A-Wish Foundation have changed and how impressed I am with their organization and what they do.

When more time allows, I will share more details about our experience with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and a bit on our daughter’s story as well.  I have some other posts to get to first, but until then please consider the Make-A-Wish Foundation in your holiday giving.  You can also follow them on twitter @makeawish.
