Thank You From Make-A-Wish® Illinois

October 30, 2018

Dear Car Donation Foundation,

On behalf of all of us at Make-A-Wish® Illinois, I would like to thank Car Donation Foundation for your generous support- thank you for making wishes come true! Last year, through your generosity Make-A-Wish Illinois touched the lives of over 700 children facing a critical illness.

Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. For many, it’s the start of feeling normal again; for others, it serves as a launching point into new treatments; and for some, it’s the beginning of hope. We at Make-A-Wish Illinois believe that hope is medicine.

The doctors we partner with use wishes as a vital part of their patients’ treatment. They count on Make-A-Wish and we in turn count on individuals like you. Together, we take children facing critical illness on a wish journey- from diagnosis and treatment to resilience and healing.

“The wish was exactly one year after her initial surgery. It became a symbol of her future filled with good things and a reminder that her cancer was in the past.” –Suzi, Wish Mom

The ability was exactly to impact the lives of so many children and their families are possible because of you. Thank you for all that you do.

Very truly yours,

Stephanie Springs

Chief Executive Officer
