Where Science and Hope Meet

Excerpt: "So, what happens to the mind and body when our wishes—our most significant goals—come true? More specifically, what effect is the Make-A-Wish experience having on children?

Peter on his wish

Cancer survivor spends memorable weekend with Notre Dame football team

Notre Dame Insider

All Peter wanted to do was stand on the sideline. When the Make-A-Wish foundation first approached the Zinsli family, that was the idea that popped into his head. The 18-year-old cancer-free high school senior wanted to attend a Notre Dame football game and experience it from a different angle. And if he was allowed to shake head coach Brian Kelly’s hand, well, that would be an added bonus.

  • "She had such a rough year with her treatments for #leukemia and working so hard to graduate high school and maintain her 4.3 GPA. She really went beyond what anyone expected of her. In addition to all this, her grandmother passed away unexpectedly 3 days after she got out of the hospital and that was devastating for all of us but especially hard on Catherine. They were best friends and Catherine really never got to talk to her about her diagnosis. Too much suffering for one young girl. 💙 Our family has had our share of challenges too. Her brother, who she is extremely close to, suffered in his own way because he felt guilty that he didn't get sick instead of her. He also had to support her from college, which was hard for him. We ran ourselves ragged trying to help her apply to college and then just getting her back and forth daily to her infusions. It was difficult and stressful. This trip was truly a blessing for our entire family. It really settled us and gave us time to remember how much we love each other and how thankful we are to be together. 🐳🌤For Catherine, this trip really signified the beginning of the next chapter of her life. From the moment we got there she wanted to do everything! She was very mindful that she had been given a gift, not only from the Make-A-Wish Los Angeles, but just the gift of life. She was not going to waste one second. " - Catherine's Mom . . 📸: Catherine, 17 (affected by cancer), has been granted her wish to swim with sharks in Mo'orea . . *Before the summer is officially over there's still time to double your donations since our board members are matching all gifts dollar for dollar. Consider giving today to double your impact and change lives of kids like Catherine. ♥️ >> la.wish.org/summer-campaign #MakeAWishLA Love What Matters #lovewhatmatters #ChildhoodCancerAwareness
