Make A Wish 3-24-12
Today I was watching HGTV while painting and Geneviene was redoing a girls bedroom for her Make A Wish. This little girl has Lukemia of some sort. I can’t remember what type. To get a make a wish you have to have a very serious and life threatening condition. A doctor must make the recommendation for the child to be considered too. This little girl who was about 10 looked real good. Her room turned out beautiful too.
When Kathryn was 8 she had a Make A Wish. By the time we went on it she was 9. She was well into her treatment and pretty weak. It was a perfect time to go to boost her moral. A limo picked us up at the house. We spent the night at a hotel by the airport and the next morning flew to Florida. We spent the night once there in the Radison Hotel and then the next day boarded the Disney Cruise Line. While in the Bahamas we went to the Blue Lagoon and swam with the Dolphins. Kathryn also worked with the trainer feeding and giving instructions to the dolphins. She was so cute out there with her bald little head. We spent a day at the Disney Island too. Kathryn also collected signatures from all the Disney Characters. One day we were invited to the control room to meet the captain. The other kids on the make a wish were also there. One little girl had cycle cell. One boy who had a liver transplant was too busy having fun to show up (that’s a good thing). His parents were there. And I don’t remember what the other child had. It’s not just cancer that takes our children. We had a fabulous time. It was good for Kathryn to get away and have some fun.
Make a Wish is a fabulous program and maybe some day I can help out with a wish.
I found more artwork of Kathryn’s today. I think there were three drawings that I never saw before. I also found some artwork of Richard’s too. I’m excited to put all of this artwork up in the hallway like a gallery.
Oh, my sleep has improved somewhat. This is good!
