I WANT TO SWIM WITH DOLPHINS!
The Walk for Wishes is this Saturday, 8/5! Please help me raise funds for Make-A-Wish--a great organization. Wishes come true give kids hope, strength and joy when they need it most. For example...
Meet adorable Avery, a former patient at UCSF, whose wish was to swim with dolphins. Once she heard that her wish would come true she told her mom that thinking about the dolphins made her feel "more brave" when she came to the clinic for hours of chemo. After completing two years of treatment, Avery and her family spent six days in Hawaii where she swam with the dolphins, watched sea turtles and visited the Honolulu zoo where exotic birds flocked to her! Her mom says that Avery "was giddy the whole time!" Avery also met and became friends with other WishKids. They played "like they didn't have a care in the world." These experiences are life changing.
Wishes can increase the physical and emotional well-being of WishKids, and create happy, lifelong memories. Wish experiences are as much about the days that follow, as they are about the wish itself – because the impact of a wish can last forever.
The funds we raise will support the Make-A-Wish® mission to grant the wish of every eligible child who has been diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition.
A wish experience can truly change a child’s life. Please donate today.
