Aaron's Wish Journey

Aaron
A wish is more than just a single day, week or moment in time. It is a journey that starts with a dream and continues to be a source of hope throughout a wish child’s life. For 14-year-old Aaron, this journey was recorded through the words of his mom, Jennifer. Her story captures every powerful moment of hardship, joy and triumph that her son and family have faced since his diagnosis with cystic fibrosis.
