  "He's my miracle child."  
  By the time Trystan became a teenager, he's had three heart surgeries and countless procedures. In 10 to 20 years, he’ll need a new heart. Despite it all, Trystan remains upbeat. His mom calls him her miracle child. Soon, his wish to go to Hawaii will come true because of generous supporters like you. KATU-TV was there as he and his family celebrated the wish and talked about what he looks forward to the most about the trip. WATCH his story.

More than 200 local kids are waiting for their wishes to be granted right now. Through the end of the year, you can impact and inspire local children to reach for their one true wish by donating to Make-A-Wish Oregon. Remember that gifts made before December 31 can generate income tax deductions that could help reduce your income tax bill.
