Why I’m walking in the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s Walk For Wishes

In 2000, I wished to meet ‘NSYNC

In 2000 — when I was 14 years old — I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a form of cancer. Make-A-Wish granted my wish, which was to meet ‘NSYNC. My mother and I were flown from San Jose, CA to Pittsburgh, PA to meet the band at one of their shows.

We not only met the band and watched the concert from a close distance…I received a hug from band member, Joey Fatone.

We were treated like royalty. During the trip, we enjoyed limo rides, plenty of ‘NSYNC-themed gifts and a shopping spree…all courtesy of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Make-A-Wish gave me so much joy during the most difficult time of my life. I have been cancer-free since 2003, and want to help Make-A-Wish continue to grant wishes for brave wish children.

Wishes can increase the physical and emotional well-being of wish kids, and create happy, lifelong memories. In fact, wish experiences are as much about the days that follow, as they are about the wish itself – because the impact of a wish can last forever.

The funds I raise will support the Make-A-Wish® mission to grant the wish of every eligible child who has been diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition.

A wish experience can truly change a child’s life, and so can you. Please support me and donate to my page today at Walk For Wishes.

Thank you!
