Dear Friends and Family,
Western New York Make-A-Wish is near and dear to my heart. Not only have I witnessed wishes come true, I am lucky enough to have been granted one! I am currnetly awaiting my up and coming wish, a visit to Walt Disney World at Christmas time! I cannot even put into words how much Make-A-Wish has impacted my life.
At age 17, I was diagnosed with a life threatening genetic illness, Hereditary Angioedema. Upon diagnosis, it changed my life forever as I tried to balance the shocking news along with finishing my senior year of high school. I struggled with my diagnosis, as it took away the ability to be a normal teenager.
Being granted a wish is by far the best thing that has ever happened to me.
The experience that I have received from being a Make-A-Wish kid, is the exact reason I have chose to fundraise for this amazing organization. I believe that a wish experience can change everything for a child with a life-threatening medical condition.
Upon winning the title of 2016-17 Niagara County Peach Queen, I knew immediately that WNY Make-A-Wish was the perfect organization to funraise for.
Since I have been granted a wish that I will forever change my life, I want nothing more than to be able to do the same for another child.
Please help by contributing any amount you can. Every dollar you donate can help Make-A-Wish kids like myself renew their courage and find a turning point in their lives.
Thank you for your support!
