We wanted to share a story with you to show how much Make-A-Wish helps change childrens lives, by granting their one special wish and why our philanthropic work with them is so close to our hearts. Here is a heart touching story about Make-A-Wish Kid, Zoe.
We would like to share Zoe’s story with you all! She is an amazing and selfless young woman who spreads positivity and warmth wherever she may go. Zoe has dealt with Cystic Fibrosis since birth, staying at Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital for long periods of time. When it was time for her wish to be granted, she wanted to give back to those in the hospital. Zoe always had her hospital room decorated as it brought a bit of positivity, this then expanded into an idea for her wish. She asked for the fifth floor of the hospital to be renovated, which included games, a playroom, comfy seating, and a bright environment. Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital worked with an interior design team and Zoe to bring her vision to life, a very hands on experience for Zoe. She explained, “I just felt like if the rooms were even more cheerful, it would be a little easier being there. It could help kids get better faster, lift up their spirits and make them happier.”
We thank Zoe for her selflessness and Make-A-Wish for sharing such a great story and Wish. You can check out more of her story here: http://wish.org/wishes/wish-stories/i-wish-to-give/zoe-hospital-floor-redesign#sm.0000nfxlavmkqe9m10pmd10murtqt
