My son was diagnosed with aplastic anemia and required a bone marrow transplant. For a year and a half, from diagnosis until he was past the earliest and most risky months post transplant we could not go anywhere besides the hospital for fear of catching an infection that could be life threatening. After he was fully recovered we applied for and were granted a wish to go to Pirate Island in Turks and Caicos. It gave us a chance to reconnect, relax and have fun as a family after a very stressful time in our lives. Make-A-wish brings so much joy to families who really need it which is why I’m nominating them.
