Every day, at least one child in Alaska and Washington is diagnosed with a critical illness. A child like four-year-old Grace.
Grace was barely walking when a neurologist confirmed her parent’s worst fears: Grace had a tumor on her spinal cord.
She underwent a seven hour surgery to remove the tumor, had eight months of intense physical therapy sessions and over a year of chemotherapy. Though these medical interventions saved her life, she wasn’t healed until you came in.
Grace’s wish helped to heal her and her family. You made that possible.
“(With her wish), everything just turned around in such a short period of time, and that’s something she’ll remember for the rest of her life,” said her dad, Khang. Research shows children who have wishes granted build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. This improves their quality of life and produces better health outcomes.
Right now, you are needed more than ever. The list of children waiting for their wishes just keeps growing. Will you step up and become a monthly donor so kids like Grace can count on you to help them heal every month of the year? Your gifts help make hope, transformation and healing possible.
