Our daughter’s wish means more to us than you’ll ever know. It means the world that strangers who don’t know us want the best for Vega, and generously supported her wish to go surfing in Hawaii.
Every day, Vega battles Cystic Fibrosis, or CF. It’s a condition that typically has her hospitalized at least once a year. She has to wear a mask in public during peak germ seasons, and today there’s no cure for CF. It’s a condition she’ll live with for the rest of her life.
That’s why it’s so important for us to live each and every day to its fullest. Make-A-Wish gave us something we could never give our daughter, something that no medicine or doctor could either. It was the experience of a lifetime, everything and more that our girl has talked about her whole life. It was everything she has dreamed about through all the hard days spent sick or in the hospital. It gave us all the strength we need to persevere.
We know firsthand that Make-A-Wish has a profound impact in the lives of sick children, which is why we as a wish family are asking for your help to raise money and awareness to grant the wishes of other children all year long.
Support kids waiting for a wish with a gift this holiday season and help us raise a grand total of $350,000 for Make-A-Wish Mid-South. No gift is too big or too small- every dollar counts!
Then, join Vega’s wish journey as it unfolds with videos on Make-A-Wish Mid-South’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You’ll hear the impact of a wish from all three of us as well as Vega’s doctor and her Make-A-Wish volunteers. Together we can transform lives, one wish at a time.
Thank you for your support!
