A letter from Z's mom

Z-Man
Just three months before he left for his wish, Alexander or "Z-man" as he likes to be called, was declared cancer-free. It was the news that his family had been waiting for and the best way to start his incredible wish trip. Nicole, Z-man’s mom, recounted the wish in this heart-warming letter.

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.

Wish Granting for Non-Verbal Children

Volunteering for Make-A-Wish Hawaii has been life-changing. I’ve seen a number of wishes in the past year, and I’ve learned that no wish experience is the same. Initially there were a number of people who asked me if I thought wish granting would make me sad, to which I replied it would actually be a joyful experience. What I didn’t realize at the time was how very true that statement would become.
