What Happens in Vegas...

Kevin Bopp & Family at the Las Vegas sign
When you think of Las Vegas, what comes to mind? Las Vegas Boulevard? Casinos? Shows and an incredible nightlife? I think Las Vegas deserves some overdue credit. Each year, Las Vegas hosts over forty kids from all around the world to have their one true wish granted.

A Wish Mom's Perspective: Jessica

Hailey_480x240
"As her mother, I just wanted Hailey to be happy and to feel loved by the characters she sees on TV. To see her face light up as she was transformed into Cinderella at the Bibiddi Bobiddi Boutique was a smile that I have permanently placed in my heart. When the princesses told her they loved her dress and her beautiful hair, it was extremely touching and even though tears would fill my eyes, they were happy tears. Hailey was experiencing something magical."

Allegiant Shares the Power Of A Wish

Allegiant
The Power of a Wish…it is an energy; a real and tangible force of good. Each wish is fueled by the kindness of strangers. My son Michael is a Wish child and a four year survivor of diffuse large B cell lymphoma. While he was sick, the hope and positive energy of the thought of his upcoming Wish provided him a much needed distraction from the sickness and pain of chemotherapy. The Wish was a bright focal point for the whole family to anticipate as part of a healthy and cancer-free future.

A Wish Mom's Perspective: Tanner's Story

Tanner 480x250
As a mother, you always hope your children will be healthy and happy. You can imagine my surprise when I found out my three-month-old son, Tanner, was diagnosed with C.H.A.R.G.E. SYNDROME. My baby boy had his first surgery within 24 hours of his birth, spent his first six months of life in the NICU at Sunrise Children's Hospital, and has accumulated over 30+ surgeries with more to come.

A Wish Mom's Perspective: Dawn

Sophia was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in August of 2014. She was unable to go to school during her treatment. She was diagnosed at stage 3 and immediately began a course of chemotherapy. She went through 4 rounds of chemotherapy from August through November. She responded well and was classified as an early and rapid responder.

An Intern's Perspective: Joey

I’ve always been familiar with Make-A-Wish—I’ve seen the captivating advertisements on TV, Allegiant Airlines has a plane wrapped with the Make-A-Wish logo, and I know some specific wishes that have been granted from the news (my favorite was Bat Kid’s wish in San Francisco!)—but I didn’t think much about the opportunity to intern for such a life-changing organization.

A Wish Granter's Perspective: Pat

My daughter was a pediatric oncology nurse in Las Vegas and referred her patients to the local Make-A-Wish chapter. It was because of her that I wanted to join the organization.
