I was inspired to join this great organization, as a result of my own family’s experience over 60 years ago. My sister, Diane, was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of 4. An organization in Sacramento, California, stepped up unexpectedly and paid for a trip for our family to go to Disneyland. This was long before Make-A-Wish was in existence. In fact, it was before even I was in existence. The experience my parents and 2 older sisters had on that very special day left a lifelong impression. So for me, it is very personal and rewarding to help other families experience a special day with one another as my family did many years ago.
