SUMMER OF WISHES:
For many, Summer is considered their favorite time of the year. Beach towels, sunglasses and plenty of sunscreen – it may sound like your packing list for an average summer day at the beach, but for some families, it’s quite literally a wish come true.
At Make-A-Wish, while we look forward to summer for many of those same reasons, there is one glaring difference for us: summer wish season. For all those reasons stated and more, summer is our busiest time of the year for granting wishes – specifically travel wishes. Throughout the school year, many of our wish kids miss so much class due to doctors’ visits, treatments, and surgeries, that it’s typically unrealistic for them to travel at all. Therefore, many of our wish families anticipate summertime for its freedom.
For our families, these simple summer wishes are the ultimate escape from the day-to-day challenge of battling a critical illness. Even better, they have the power to heal. These wishes allow them to be together again after so many weeks, months or even years of splitting time between nights at the hospital. Many of our families come back from their wish and say, “It was great to be a family again!” No matter the destination, wishes matter. Having something to look forward to can help our wish kids power through treatment and stay positive in the face of seemingly overwhelming obstacles.
As you make your summer plans, consider helping a child find strength and joy through a life-changing wish journey. Children just like Emma, Chris and Gabriella. Read more about our featured wish kids at mokan.wish.org/summerofwishes.
