In 2017, Liam, 15, wished to visit Walt Disney World where he and his family had the time of their lives. They were also moved by the people they met on their trip. "Liam has become inspired to 'pay it forward' by returning to Give Kids The World Village one day himself to volunteer," said his parents. "This trip meant much more to our family than just a trip to theme parks. This kind of undertaking takes a huge amount of work and organization, and we are so appreciative."
Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month
Brain Tumour Awareness Month
. When children are battling a critical illness, so much of the joy of childhood is taken away from them — it is exhausting, both emotionally and physically.
Liam's dad Peter noted, "Life with cystic fibrosis is not easy. It's hard on so many levels. There are the hours of treatment each day, the multitude of pills and then there's living with the knowledge that, while science continues to make breakthroughs, you do live with a life limiting disease. It's wonderful that Make-A-Wish shares happiness and hope with kids who have been dealt a rough hand in life."
Thank you for all you do to make wishes happen for kids like Liam!
