You reminded Noelia what happiness feels like

Noelia smiles from a swimming pool in Hawaii.

“ You reminded Noelia what happiness feels like ”

Adopt-A-Wish Sponsor: Seattle Sounders FC

While 10-year-old Noelia faced chemotherapy twice a week for an entire year, she received news that gave her the strength to fight harder: she would receive a wish.

From that moment, Noelia’s wish was a much-needed distraction and aided in her healing. She spent hours daydreaming about a family trip instead of focusing on the pain of treatment.

Meet Noelia

Research shows children, like Noelia, who have wishes granted build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. This improves quality of life and produces better health outcomes. For that, we thank you!

Special thanks to: Adopt-A-Wish sponsor Seattle Sounders FC, Make-A-Wish Hawaii and wish-granting volunteers Carolina Ayala de Freeman and Anne Hess.
