Review for Make-A-Wish Arizona, Scottsdale, AZ, USA
Our son Renan was 11 when he was diagnosed with leukemia. It was devastating to our whole family and something we never thought we would hear. That very day he would start his treatments.
It was hard for Renan to be away from his family and home while he was at the hospital so he would ask them to come see him each night he was there.
After several months went by, we were told that he could be a part of Make a Wish. It made such a huge difference to him, having something really fun to look forward to. It was also really important to him that it would be something that his family could do together.
One day when Renan was watching TV, he saw a commercial for the new Alauni resort in Hawaii and decided right then that it was where he wanted to go! Everything was planned, and the the whole family was going! Renan loved it and we all have such special memories of being there together.
Renan’s wish helped him get through the hardest thing he’s ever had to face. We are so grateful to Make a Wish for granting wishes and making such a huge difference in the life of our son.
