“Holding my wonderful daughter in my arms, we danced large circles around the empty room. Whatever troubles we’d left behind in difficult months and hard years; whatever trials still lay ahead; none of that mattered. The moment was ours. It was ours forever.”

Remember the Parents and the Caregivers, Too

There is much said about the courage of the wish kids. These kids battle any variety of life-threatening illnesses. However, there is another person in this battle; someone that is often overlooked. This is an unsung hero. Someone that that takes on the burden of the dark, to help allow the light in. The child with the illness has someone who fights alongside them. While these wish kids battle their diseases, their parents and caretakers are right there with them. Day in and day out, they swing for the fences, trying to hit a home run for that child and hoping that whatever effort they put into helping that boy or girl will move them one step closer to overcoming their obstacles.
