You can watch Monty's wish unfold

You can watch Monty's wish unfold.

“ Make-A-Wish takes the pressure off … it gives us something to look forward to. ”

- Robin, Monty's mom

Adopt-A-Wish® Sponsor: Mike & Stephanie Fanning

You are helping make wishes come true for kids like Monty, who is waiting for his wish to come true.

In just one day, Monty went from being a healthy, energetic kid to the critical care unit. Monty had sudden-onset liver failure. He needed a liver transplant, and needed it fast.

“It was a nightmare when he was in the hospital,” said Monty’s mom, Robin. “They weren’t sure if he was going to make it.”

Fortunately, Monty received his liver transplant, but his challenges aren’t over. He takes 40 pills a day and still goes to outpatient rehab. Monty faces a high risk of infection and rejection, so his parents must keep the house immaculate; he can only go to school for a few hours a day.

But now, Monty and his family have something to look forward to and distract them from the throes of illness.They have something that is providing them with a chance to be a family again. They have his wish and it's all because of supporters like you! You can follow along as his wish comes true in real time! 

Monty meets Make-A-Wish

Watch Monty meet his Make-A-Wish volunteers for the first time and learn that he has been approved for a wish. Fun fact, before Make-A-Wish showed up at his door, he had no idea we were coming!
