Our granddaughter was first diagnosed with a Wilms Tumor at age 2-1/2. She was done with chemo at age 3. That young child is now a beautiful girl of 12, who is active in school sports, tumbling and is a very healthy young lady.
We volunteer at Wishing Star because we believe in their mission and feel that recovery for children is helped by both excellent medical care and the child’s belief that their life can be fuller. The granting of wishes seems to help that attitude tremendously. We also volunteer there because we feel we can help pay back Wishing Star for helping our granddaughter when she was suffering from cancer at such a young age. She truly enjoyed her trip to Disneyland and has many memorable pictures to remind her of her trip.
We love the staff and volunteers at Wishing Star, and how they sincerely believe in the mission and purpose of Wishing Star. We can see that they love working with the children and granting their wishes.
Anyone who is considering donating should know how hard the staff at Wishing Star work to get the most out of every dollar spent on wishes. If those donors could see the faces on the kids when they come into the office and tell about their wish trips after they come back, they would see how much good their monthly donation can accomplish.
