|Please help me Make-A-Wish come true!|
|Thanks for stopping by! |
I am participating in the Make-A-Wish Trailblaze Challenge to raise funds which grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. These wishes enrich their lives with hope, strength and joy. With your help, I know that I can surpass my personal goal. Please donate. It makes a huge difference in the life of a child and their family.
I decided to take on this challenge for a couple of reasons. First, to raise awareness and funding for Make-A-Wish. Secondly, this will be a tremendous physical challenge for me. You may not know that I suffered from a rare condition called Legg–Calvé–Perthes disease as a child. Although not life threatening, the disease prevented the ball and socket joint in my left hip from forming properly. I was forced to wear a brace on my left leg for 2 years to remedy the issue. I still have the occasional problem with this joint, so in a VERY small way, I begin to understand the limitations faced by these children.
With life-threatening medical conditions, those carefree days spent laughing with friends and family are put on hold as boys and girls are catapulted in to a strange and unfamiliar world filled with great uncertainty. Over the organization's 30-year history, they have found that granting a wish is often the best medicine possible. It is a prescription that changes a child’s outlook on life and generates a smile for the first time in a long time. :)
So please, Help and Share in the Power of a Wish® – donate today!
