I'm fundraising with Make-A-Wish to help grant wishes for children with critical illnesses. It's truly amazing what wishes can do... give kids renewed energy and strength, bring families closer together and unite communities.
For our fundraiser, we decided to team up with Chuck Lamon at Victory Promotions and create amazing Make-A-Wish apparel. The online store can be found here: https://stores.inksoft.com/make_a_wish/shop/home
Our journey with Make-A-Wish began in 2001 when Katy was diagnosed with a football-sized Wilms tumor growing in her kidney. Thankfully, after numerous hospital stays, surgeries, chemo, and radiation, she was pronounced cancer-free! We were not very familiar at the time with Make-A-Wish but we soon found out how very amazing it is. Katy adored the Disney princesses and as you can guess, she wished to go to Disney World. It was such a magical experience for our whole family. We were treated like royalty. It was so much fun after a grueling year of hospitals and doctors.
Ten years later we found out that Nicholas was in kidney failure and it was just a matter of time before he would have to undergo a kidney transplant. We had never even considered the possibility of Nicholas getting a wish. Through all of this, we never once considered that he would receive a wish. When the wish granters contacted us we initially said no. We felt so blessed to have had one wish we did not want to take another. The wish granters were so incredible and wanted to give Nicholas a wish. He is a huge basketball fan and he wished to go to the NCAA Final Four with his dad and his Godfather and his son. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for him and he loved every single minute of it!
Make-A-Wish is SO amazing!!!! We are forever grateful for the memories and the happiness it has brought to us. We have vowed to do everything we can to help!
Now more than ever, the world needs the hope of a wish come true. Together, we can help grant more wishes. Please donate today.
Thank you for your support!
