Make a Wish foundation is an exceptional organization. They work far beyond anybody expectation to make families like us to feel amazing. They help my 6 year old daughter that has ongoing spinal surgeries 3 times a year. She spend a lot in the hospital. It was the best present as a parent to see my daughter light up her face when we spend 1 week in Orlando, FL. Make a wish work hard to make my daughter dream come true. We had the most amazing time and the best part it was worry free financial bill. Everything was paid off and they treat us like royalty. Every volunteer was amazing from the beginning of the process until the end. We had the best memories ever in this vacation. We love Make a wish foundation. Everyone that works in there is awesome.
