Dear Friends and Family,
I am so excited to share about this orginization, as I work closely with the Oklahoma Chapter of Make-A-Wish. Working as a Certified Child Life Specialist, I have been able to work with many patients and families who have been blessed by the Make-A-Wish organization. The Make-A-Wish Oklahoma Chapter goes above and beyond to get to know each child and family referred, walking alongside them through every step of the wish process. Many patients and families look forward to their Make-A-Wish volunteer visits just as much as their wish!
I have personally witnessed the encouragement and hope that this organization gives patients and families who are undergoing difficult medical treatments and diagnoses. I have been able to sit with patients as they DREAM BIG when they are thinking of and planning what their wish may be. During difficult and often discouraging times, they provide the unique opportunity for patients and families to look forward to something fun and positive. Make-A-Wish also provides the family with invaluable memories to cherish. When they visit a wish child and their family, they bring cheerfulness to the hospital setting and staff in so many ways.
Please consider making a donation to help continue to ensure the Make-A-Wish organization can deliver awesome and life changing wishes for patients and families.
Thank you for your support!
