June 23 marked 8 years since Jackson passed away after battling glioblastoma -- the most deadly form of brain cancer. In his honor, we'll try to add to the Make-A-Wish fundraising total during the months of June and July take a step toward adopting a child's full wish for the fourth consecutive year.
Shortly after Jackson was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2011, the Make-A-Wish Foundation contacted his family to ask if he had a wish they could fulfill. He was truly wise and selfless beyond his 10 years. He told them that he had everything he wanted in life. Instead, Jackson wanted to help raise money to allow another child battling a serious illness to fulfill a wish. I believe that a Make-A-Wish experience can change everything for a child with a life-threatening medical condition. A wish gives children battling serious illnesses a glimpse of what life can hold beyond medical treatments and worry.
You can help by donating any amount you can - $12, $24, $48 or more. Every dollar helps Make-A-Wish kids renew their courage and find a turning point in their lives. Your tax-deductible gift makes a difference to Make-A-Wish and the thousands of eligible children waiting for their wish experience. Whatever you can give will help - it all adds up to help Make-A-Wish fulfill a life-changing wish.
Jackson's memory has inspired previous fundraising efforts that have raised nearly $250,000 for childhood cancer research and quality of life programs. This particular effort means so much because it directly benefits a charity that he personally supported, and also furthers the wish of a child from his local area.
In his everlasting words: "Thank you, Fight On."
