Wish Spotlight: Wish mom Melissa wishes it forward

Melissa
Kapolei wish mom-turned-volunteer Melissa has wished it forward in countless ways over the past six years. She’s raised thousands of dollars to make wishes come true through marathons and hiking challenges, made generous donations to our gala auction, volunteered at fundraising events like Swing for Wishes and Waffles for Wishes, shared her story in interviews, waved signs out front of our office, answered phones for our Give Wishes Wings radiothon and telethon, worked directly with wish families as a wish granter, and so much more. Melissa’s selfless dedication to the Make-A-Wish® Hawaii mission inspires us every day—as does the incredible fortitude she and her family have shown during their son Kayle’s lifelong battle with a critical genetic condition.
