Mother Lisa Glines has two daughters whose wishes were fulfilled and they spoke about the impact on their family.

“Having a wish for our two medical children has been really special for them. They were both able to choose something that was important to each of them, and that really helps with the morale that has really made a difference in their lives, “he said.

“Being able to have something special and important for children that is unique to them. And that really helps to brighten our spirits, especially around Christmas.

“It’s really difficult for a lot of these kids and a lot of their families when you have hospital stays on vacation or during vacations, tests and procedures.”
