Make A Wish Foundation

Our family was invited someplace pretty special.  Once of Grace’s best friends hand delivered us an invitation to join his team to walk for the Make A Wish Foundation of CT. 
His team. 
He is a survivor.  Diagnosed with lymphoma last year he taught us all a lessons about courage and bravery.  Not once did I ever hear him complain, not when his port was installed, not when his hair fell out, not when he missed some school for appointments, and not when his baseball hat became his constant companion.  This child is remarkable, as is his family.  
So when we were asked if we would raise money and walk with him, of course we said yes!  
Saturday was a day of friendship.


Of caring.

Of support.


Of compassion.

The next time Make A Wish calls your home seeking a donation, please remember this post and don’t hang up.
