Thank You From Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee

April 6,2018

Dear Car Donation Foundation,

I would like to thank you for your thoughtful contribution to Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee. Your gift of $2,177.73 was received on March 27, 2018 and will help make wishes come true for Middle Tennessee children who face critical illnesses.

For seriously ill children, the wonder and delight of childhood can seem lost in routines of doctors, hospitals, and pain. But we can turn that around, helping children think beyond the experience of illness by bringing their most heartfelt wish to life. A wish gives children renewed energy and strength, brings families closer together and unites communities. When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope.

Anniston, 11, was a young when she was diagnosed with, Chiari malformation, a congenital neurological condition that left her in need of any surgeries. As a child, Anniston loved watching game shows with her grandparents. They would marvel at all of the wonderful resorts and trips that the lucky winners were given. When Anniston was given the opportunity through Make-A-Wish to have her greatest wish come true, she knew she wanted to spend a week in Hawaii like the contestants on her favorite game show. Support from donors like you made her wish a reality!

There are few experiences more powerful than making a wish come true. Thank to your support, we are one step closer to creating life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

Sincerely,

Beth Torres

President and CEO
