Welcome to my fundraising page! I joined this fundraiser to help grant wishes for children with critical illnesses. With your help, it's possible.
My wish was granted due to my Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency, a liver and lung disease that was expected to take my life at a very young age. I have worked since then to give back to Make-A-Wish for the once in a lifetime experience they have given me. I participate each year in what is called the Believe Campaign, where Macy’s donates $1 to Make-A-Wish for each letter to Santa they collect. Since collecting these letters since the age of 9, I have been honored to have raised over $500,000 for this amazing organization. Each child’s wish averages about $10,000, therefore I have grant about 50 wishes! Skydiving for Make-A-Wish is something I’ve dreamed of doing since I was very young. Although I will be eligible by age to participate, I need to raise at least $1,000 to participate and my personal goal is $1,200.
With the support and belief that Make-A-Wish had in me, I was able to push myself to limits I didn't know existed and prove every doctor wrong of telling my parents, "This is it, she won't be returning home this time.." I am now 18 years old and healthier than I've ever been. I was able to win almost every battle life has thrown at me and accomplish most everything I've wished of doing. With your help and donation I will be able to accomplish yet another.
Please help by contributing to this fundraiser. Every dollar matters.
Thank you for your support!
