The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Trusted Choice® aligned with the Foundation in July, donating $10 for every new ‘like’ to our Facebook page. The result – the Trusted Choice® Facebook page grew by 17,159 new “likes” during the month-long campaign, and we made a $171,590 donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Our donation translated into eleven wishes being granted for courageous kids across the country. For the next several weeks, we’ll share stories from these experiences…the ones you helped make possible – like seventeen-year-old Lual from Arizona.
Lual’s helicopter hovers over the deep-blue ocean. His favorite music thumps through his headphones. Everything is perfect – his adventure vacation is everything he imagined.
His mind wanders back a few days to the stretch limo arriving at his house. To arriving for his flight in VIP style. To greeters at the airport hanging purple-and-green leis around his neck welcoming him to Hawaii.
And that was just the beginning. Every day, Lual steps further away from the stress of his illness. His family re-connects, free of worry and the exhausting routine of his medical treatments. The Make-A-Wish® experience transforms Lual – and lets him just revel in the exultation of hovering over the waves of a tropical paradise.
