Dear Friends and Family,
Nathan has never let his cardiac condition interfere with his hope of one day becoming a U.S. Marine, like his brother. This deep, personal connection has inspired his desire to experience military life first-hand.
Kids like Nathan are the reason I established a Make-A-Wish® fundraising page. Make-A-Wish® Greater Los Angeles (MAWGLA) has transformed the lives of more than 9,000 children in our community by carrying out their mission to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.
At first it seemed to Nathan that his wish would be impossible but the Make-A-Wish volunteers, in cooperation with the U.S. Marines, found a way to make it happen. Nathan and his entire family – including his parents, uncle, brother and sister – soon found themselves on their way to Camp Pendleton in San Diego, heading for a unique and meaningful adventure.
Please help by contributing any amount you can - $30, $50, $100 or even more. Every dollar you donate can help Make-A-Wish kids renew their courage and find a turning point in their lives.
Thank you for your support!
Bobbi and Peter van Dijk
