The Reward of Wish Granting

Efrain 480x250
Being a Wish Granter for Make-A-Wish continues to be incredibly rewarding. Not only does it give me the opportunity to meet and get to know other volunteers that share the same passion as I do to give back to the community, but it also give me the opportunity to represent an organization that is admired so much for the work it does for those it serves.

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.
