A Letter from Wish Mom and Volunteer Erin

Harper
As a Disney Cast Member in college, I saw many Make-A-Wish families having the time of their lives. I always admired Make-A-Wish for what they do to help families of seriously ill children. I had no idea that I would soon find out just how special a Wish can truly be. In 2017, when my daughter Harper was 7 years old, she began having pain in her legs and just wasn't acting like herself. After many trips to the doctor, she was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of pediatric cancer. Not long after her diagnosis, the child life specialist at our hospital asked if we had thought about contacting Make-A-Wish.
