It's that time of year again! April marks 5 years on staff with Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada and May marks 16 years since I started volunteering here. I hope you all know the difference you make in the lives of children facing critical illnesses -- a wish gives them something to anticipate with joy (rather than dread). Doctors began studies this year on the medical impacts of wishes and the early data suggests a reduction in post-wish hospitalizations -- this means wishes improve medical outcomes, saving health care dollars!
Thank you to so many of you for supporting my 40th birthday fundraiser in December. If you're able to contribute even $5 to this walk campaign, every bit helps! This is also a new tax year for charitable donations!
I appreciate you all and wish you a wonderful 2019!
