Wish Wednesday: Working for Make-A-Wish A "Rewarding Experience"

Lisa at work!
“There is no exercise better for strengthening the heart, than reaching down and lifting people up.” – John Holmes

That is just what our wish kids need—a positive chance to dream, that will lift their spirits and outshine draining medical treatments that are seemingly unfair for just a small child. Our wish kids deserve an opportunity to have a huge imagination and an enthusiastic dream. They deserve an extraordinary vision within reach. A vision that gives them the strength and hope that they can beat their illness. Some way. Somehow. That they can keep fighting and make it through such difficult times. That they can embrace the joy of just being a kid again.
