There are many kids in this country who live each day with life-threatening illnesses. Fortunately, there are organizations out there focused on bringing joy into the lives of these brave little souls and their families who face extremely unfortunate circumstances. One such organization, and probably the most well-known, is the Make-A-Wish Foundation which was drawn in this week’s Rocketeer charity drawing.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation, entered into the drawing by Rocketeer Beth Buckley, has a sole mission of granting the wishes of those kids diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. Those wishes can range from meeting a favorite celebrity to taking fun family vacations and everything else in between. A family vacation is just what Beth and her famliy got when her youngest son Liam, who was diagnosed with cancer, wished for a trip to Hawaii. The organization means a lot to Beth as she has seen first-hand the impact of wishes granted!
Make-A-Wish grants wishes every, on average, 38 minutes! This organization has brought so much happiness to so many sick children in an effort to make them feel better and give them a boost of strength in their courageous battles. Make-A-Wish’s core belief is that granting these wishes can be game-changers and can change lives.
