Dear Friends and Family,
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my Make A wish fundraising page!
As many of you know, Make A Wish holds a special place in my heart. My son, Corbin, was diagnosed with a rare form of throat cancer in 2012. During his treatment, we were put in contact with Make A Wish. I had NO IDEA how much of an impact the organization would have on our lives.
I can not sufficiently put into words the emotions parents go through when they hear the phrase “Your child has cancer”. During the dark days of countless chemo and radiation treatments, and having a feeding tube placed; there was a positive light to focus on. That light in our life was Make A Wish.
Make A Wish gave Corbin the opportunity to focus his thoughts on learning how to surf and gave him something positive to look forward to. When he could travel, his wish was fulfilled and our family could put the word "cancer", the hospital, and treatments on hold and focus on fun. Allowing Corbin to be a kid was beyond amazing. I saw the impact on Corbin when he would think of or talk about his wish. This experience helped guide my decision to become a volunteer and help other families.
Please take this time to donate and help impact the life of a child. No amount is too small!!
