Dear Friends and Family,
Make a Wish Oklahoma is so near and dear to our hearts for several reasons. For one, they treat my son Fletcher, like a rock star with every encounter, every email, every picture they've ever posted of him and still do after three years of granting his wish.
Secondly, MAW OK made it possible for us to have our first ever, family of five vacation. Fletcher was 9 years old when MAW OK granted his wish to go to Disney World.
Fletcher's diagnosis is Epidermal Nevus Syndrome. The first year of his life was spent in and out of hospitals. When he was 10 months old Fletcher had open heart surgery. Shortly after that it was determined that he would need a tracheotomy, be ventilator dependent and require 24/7 medical care. Soon after Fletcher's first birthday he was admitted to The Children's Center in Bethany, OK. Fletcher was inpatient at TCC for seven years. February 2013 we brought Fletcher home to live! In February 2014 Fletcher, our family and one of his favorite nurses went on a trip of a lifetime! Disney World was a fantastic experience for our whole family, helping us make some wonderful, lifelong memories!
We haven't been on a family vacation since simply because I can't imagine having to plan a trip that includes Fletcher. MAW OK thought of every detail needed to make our Wish trip go smoothly, every single detail.
Please join us on this fundraising journey so more Oklahoma children will have their dreams come true!
