Monalizas DC Wish

Monaliza is one of our 38 wish kids this summer waiting for their one-true-wish to be granted!

Throughout Monaliza’s life, she has been confined to round the clock care and a hospital bed. She has always wanted to break free from her comfort zone and travel as she’s seen her sister and family do many times without her; due to additional needs and care required to take her with them. Her love for museums and historical monuments made Washington D.C. an easy choice.

Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” Be part of Monaliza's wish and help her live a life she’s always dreamed of.
