I have only been a MAW Board Member for about 6 months, but prior to that I was involved in helping the organization navigate employment issues as their pro bono lawyer. As a board member, i get to see first hand the impact of a wish on a child and his or her family. It is the most incredibly rewarding experience to see the wish's positive effects on their lives. For a time, they can focus on the wish instead of their illness. I am so amazed by all the wonderful children we help and how often their biggest hope is to pay it forward by raising money to grant more wishes. Truly moving. I am blessed to be part of the organization.
