Thank You From Make-A-Wish Northeastern California and Northern Nevada
March 29, 2018
Dear Car Donation Foundation,
I am delighted to accept your gift of $14,028.88. Your generosity strengthens our mission and transforms the lives of children in Northeastern California and Northern Nevada battling critical illnesses.
With each wish, comes renewed strength and encouragement for every child and family we serve. Twelve-year-old Nadia began to experience severe headaches and fatigue. After multiple tests, an MRI revealed a germ cell tumor in Nadia’s brain. Due to the size and location, Nadia underwent chemotherapy treatment to reduce the tumor, followed by radiation and surgery to remove what remained.
Nadia loves to run around at the park and spend time with her little sisters. When she is not enjoying the outdoors, she is playing chess, drawing, or studying her favorite subject in school: science. After plenty of thought, Nadia determined her most heartfelt wish was to be a princess at Disney World. She cherished the memories she made with her family and embraced the magic of the theme park as Princess Nadia.
“One year and one wish later, life is renewed and we are very optimistic. It was truly a magical week.”- Laura, Nadia’s mother.
A wish reintroduces the magic and wonder back into a child’s life, resulting in the child benefiting from two wishes coming true: the wish they make and the wish to be a child again. Thank you for transforming lives, one wish child at a time.
