‘My Wish Was the Start of Something’

Ezra is a volunteer firefighter today.
For children battling a critical illness, a wish-come-true can be a turning point in their lives. It can give them the emotional and physical strength to keep going – to fight harder against their illness. Ezra is proof that a wish encourages a child to focus on the possibilities of tomorrow and not on the challenges of today.

Delta Air Lines
