Father's Month Hero
There are many different types of fathers out there. Sporty dads, musical dads, funny dads—but any type of dad can become a wish dad. It is a life-changing role that no one asks for, but one that is embraced with love, compassion and determination.

For the month of June, Make-A-Wish® Southern Nevada is going to honor our wish dads and everything they do for their wish kids.


Calvin knew fatherhood was going to come with challenges, but he never expected for his son to be diagnosed with cancer at only 10 years old. That didn’t stop him from turning up the magic, especially when it came time to make Nik’s wish to go to Harry Potter World even more unforgettable. Check out their story in the video below!


You have to watch this beautiful video featuring wish dad Gene and his wish daughter Kaila. She was diagnosed with a devastating disease when she was only 12 years old, but he refused to let it dampen her bright spirit. See how their bond has helped her fight her diagnosis and come out even stronger than before.
