Wish Gives Teen Strength to Fight for Healthier Future

Mara, while on her wish to go to Alaska, has found a new perspective of experiencing life beyond illness.
Two years ago, I was diagnosed with a rare immunodeficiency disorder that sent me to the hospital 10 times in one year. I was in so much pain every day that I struggled to climb the stairs to my room, a far cry from the 16-mile marathon training days I was doing two months prior. I began to lose hope and give up on the things that once gave me so much joy in my life.

Behind the scenes you’ll find Make-A-Wish staff members, volunteers and sponsors working hard to put countless details together – all in the name of making one child’s wish come true. What looks like a perfectly executed event on the day of the wish probably took months of planning. Many people don’t realize all of the work that goes on “backstage” at Make-A-Wish, so I’d love to feature just one piece.
