CALLING ALL HEROES!

Be a big hero to our little heroes! Save the date, donate and help grant a wish! Wishes Can Happen grants the wishes of local children – ages 3 through 21 – with life threatening medical conditions. Each wish has a life changing impact for everyone involved! Over the last nine years — because of your generosity — we’ve been edging toward the million dollar mark in donations! This is our 10th and ‘Million Dollar Drive’ year! If they can wish it, we can make it happen! Our goal this year is 40 wishes! Can we count on you?

WISH KIDS

Thanks to you $181,929 was raised to help our local little heroes with life threatening illnesses!  We have met our goal of raising $1 million in 10 years!  It’s not over.  You can still donate online or bid for auction items.  Wishes auction is live through Sunday.

Meet some of our Wish Kids! We know they will touch your heart as they did ours! Remember, the money raised during Wish-A-Thon stays right here in our area! Here’s a sampling of wishes you – through your generous donations – can help us grant. And listen for their in depth stories as well as updates from previous Wish Kids throughout Wish-A-Thon!

Here’s how your donations help our Wish Kids

Ariella

Ariella wished for a Disney princess carriage to drive around all day.  A brave cancer survivor, a Toys R Us shopping spree was an added bonus!

Carmen

Little Carmen has been through so much in her young life fighting cancer.  The smiles never stopped at her week long Disney vacation wish.

TJ

TJ was born with a host of conditions severely limiting his mobility. Wishes built a deck with a ramp and added a wheelchair swing so he can enjoy outdoors.

Collin

Cancer didn’t stop 6 year old Collin from realizing his wish of riding The Tower of Terror at Universal (his 15 year old brother was terrified).

Emmie

Five year old Emmie was stricken with a condition that paralyzed her as a toddler.  Her wish was a  wheelchair swing so she could feel the wind in her hair!

Evan

Evan enjoyed a week long cruise in Alaska.  Born with multiple life threatening conditions, he touched a glacier and dog sledded while there.

John

John realized his wish of meeting Mickey Mouse at Disney in Florida.  Sadly, shortly after returning from his wish, he passed away.

Kyler

Kyler loved everything about her wish, so much so, in fact, that she convinced her family to move to Florida and will continue with cancer treatments there.

Octavia

Octavia is a courageous young lady who has been fighting cancer while working and attending school. A huge shopping spree was just what the doctor ordered!
