It has been seven years since our then 14 year old son Michael was diagnosed with, and then survived, leukemia.
We are grateful now to say the Make-A-Wish Foundation played a significant part in our son’s, and our family’s, eventual recovery. Michael’s wish was to meet the Pope, which he did Easter 2011! There are few organizations in this world that can make that happen!
It's even more amazing to us that funding for this trip came from people we never knew, nor will ever meet. How crazy is that? Well, that's the magic of this organization. Connecting those in need with those who give.
We are happy to say Michael is doing great, having just been accepted to medical school here in Philadelphia. He wants to give back and contribute to the cure of oncological diseases.
And so do we. Can you help us raise $5,000 for Make-A-Wish in 2017 to help another family? Every $1 helps, as 86 cents for every dollar goes directly to the child and their family. Not many non-profit organizations can say that!
