Review for The Rainbow Connection, Rochester, MI, USA
Rainbow Connection reached out to our family in such a special way and granted our warrior son Eli the wish of a lifetime. Just weeks before his 8th birthday- in the midst of battling Leukemia diagnosed when he was 5- we boarded a plane headed to Give Kids The World. The trip was amazing! The memories we made are still hanging on his bedroom walls now that he is cancer free and 12 years old. That trip gave us joy and laughter, time to breathe and not worry about the beast of cancer that invaded our world. It blessed us with being able to make new memories in the time of our new normal. It brought us closer to eachother and allowed us the opportunity to celebrate life and not have to worry about the financial burdens that weighed us down. Eli felt special- not because of a diagnosis- but because he was able to be treated to the fun and excitement that the wish he was granted brought to him. We continue to be so grateful to our wish coordinators, donors and all the volunteers who do so much to give children and families a glimmer of hope through this amazing organization.
