Review for Make-A-Wish Arizona, Scottsdale, AZ, USA
My son was granted a wish to go to Hawaii and see his two cousins, Aunt and Uncle. This was such an amazing experience that was put together by MAW and created an experience that will never be forgotten by our family! Kendrick loves his wish so much that, he wants to move to Hawaii and live there forever. He got to feel free from the weekly doctor’s appts, PT sessions, and hours sitting in the car traveling back and forth. Kendrick for the first time in his life got to feel like most kids, only worried about fighting over a toy that his brother or cousins had that he wanted to play with, haha. Dad and I for the first time since Kendrick was born only had to focus on just being with our family and nothing else! We have to worry about making all of Kendrick’s doctors appts fitting together, medications, surgeries, schooling, equipment modifications, jobs, money, and trying to have our kids live a normal life. The week we spent in Hawaii lifted all of these struggles away for at least a week and it was like hitting a reset button on our families mental health. We can’t thank Make-A-Wish enough for how much this wish helped our family. Kendrick has talk about his wish to all his preschool classmates, teachers, his doctors, PT, Other family members, and random people he meets. We are very thankful for all the people that helped make this possible for our family.
