KFRX’s WishFest presented by BMG is back again to celebrate 35 years of wishes in Nebraska! Come out to Gateway Mall Friday, December 14, 2018 from 6am to 6pm to support our Wish kids and families. KFRX will be broadcasting LIVE with the help of our wish kids. Tune in to 106.3 KFRX to hear their stories and how YOU can help support our mission! There will be activities for children and families, maybe even a special surprise from Matt McKay. Heartwarming stories will be shared from wish families, volunteers, and donors. This will be a day you don’t want to miss out on!
Zayln, age 4, who battles a genetic disorder daily, learned last year at WishFest that his wish was coming true. Zayln has grown up with many complications, including heart defects, developmental delays, and so much more. A majority of children that share the same illness don’t survive their birth, let alone make it to their first birthday. Zayln is a fighter and surprising everyone he encounters.
When Zayln’s wish granters met him and his family the wish was simple. Zayln LOVES Mickey Mouse and wanted to meet him and all his friends, and the best place to do that? Walt Disney World® Resorts! This wish was a dream come true for not only Zayln, but also something that his family will cherish for years to come.
Zayln’s Mom, Melinda stated, “Make-A-Wish gave us an experience my whole family will cherish forever. We likely would not ever be able to go to a place like Disney World without Make-A-Wish because of the details that are taken care for our son with special needs, such as, passes to the front of the line, housing that was ADA compliant, space in villas for his equipment, and so much more. On behalf of my husband and my children, we thank Make-A- Wish and all of the donors for giving us a trip together that we will never forget.”
Please consider donating to help grant wishes for children battling critical illnesses like Zayln. Since 1983, Make-A-Wish® Nebraska has granted the heartfelt wishes of over 2,600 across the state.Your support is helping transform lives one wish at a time.
