|Let’s Make-A-Wish® come true!|
A lot of you are probably already familiar with Make-A-Wish® foundation, their core missions is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. Over the organization's 30-year history, they have found that granting a wish for a child struggling with illness is often one of the best medicines possible. It is a prescription that changes a child’s outlook on life and can provide a much needed oasis of respite from struggles that most of us can’t imagine.
Growing up my cousin Yen-Chung was my best friend because we shared similar age, flipping through the family album, I always saw lots of pictures of us playing together with our grandparents and family members. He was such a beautiful boy, so talented and smart, and he had a very gentle spirit. Tragically, he was diagnosed with Childhood Leukemia at age of 6 in 1989, he and his parents spent most of his last days in the hospital. He battled through treatments after treatments, unfortunately, they still couldn’t save him, we lost him two years after his diagnosis. Make-A-Wish® Taiwan was founded in 1994 just few years after his pass, I wish it was available back then so he and his parents could at least to create some beautiful memories to remember him with.
My cousin never had the chance to have his wish granted or even to be heard, but together, we can now help so many children just like him with your generous support and donation! In an effort to raise money to grant more wishes and in the honor of my cousin, I am combining my love of physical fitness with an amazing cause where I know the money will make dreams comes true.
In an effort to raise funds to grant more wishes and in the honor of my cousin, my team of Emily Kait and I completed the Make-A-Wish Trailblaze Challenge 26.5 mile hike for Eastern North Carolina on June 2.
I would so appreciate your help in reaching my $2500 personal goal! Any amount over my personal goal will go towards our team goal, and all funds go to this terrific organization. The average cost of a Wish is $7,500 or more. Every little bit matters and will make a big difference in a child’s life!
Thank you so much for reading and your consideration!
