In the last 30 years, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has granted nearly 300,000 wishes worldwide to children battling life- threatening illnesses, shedding light on worlds darkened by disease and bringing hope to children and their families.
With a foreword by Make-A-Wish cofounder Frank Shankwitz, Once Upon A Wish by Rachelle Sparks shares the wishes of eight children their stories inspiring testimonials to the resilience of the human spirit.
Experience the story of Katelyn, a little girl becoming a medical marvel after defying all odds stacked against her and making it her life-long goal to raise $3 million for St. Jude’s Hospital; read about a wheelchair-bound boy, Garrett, giving the gift of mobility to disabled Cambodian men and women; and root for the family of a little boy, Dakota, who collects millions of pennies each year to help others fight the disease they once fought. Become inspired and forever-changed by the generosity, hope, courage, and optimism of these children and their families and experience the power of two words, “I wish.”
Once Upon A Wish is a celebration of hope, revealing how wishes-come-true can become ultimate motivators and cherished gifts that will last a lifetime.
