Make A Wish Wyoming Needs Airline Miles To Make Wishes Come True
Daizy was diagnosed with a malignant tumor before her second birthday, this year she will be celebrating her third birthday in Disney World and cancer free. Her parents spent months traveling back and forth from their home in Powell to Montana for chemo treatments and surgery. It was a trying time for this family but now they look forward to beginning this year of their daughter’s life with a clean bill of health.
On April 29, 1980 a little boy with leukemia named Chris wished to be a police officer for the day. A group of strangers came together to grant his one true wish. Now each year Make-A-Wish chapters around the globe celebrate World Wish Day®, in honor of this very first wish that sparked a global wish-granting movement. Make-A-Wish® Wyoming will be marking World Wish Day this year by granting Daizy’s wish to go to Disney World. This spirited little girl will be sporting a Ninja Turtles dress and will have a chance to meet her favorite turtles in person.
Make-A-Wish Wyoming and Answering Service of Casper will also be holding an air miles drive on World Wish Day, April 29 to help wish kids like Daizy take flight. Miles from Delta, United, and US Airways are accepted. Once the miles are donated they never expire and 100 percent of the donated miles help to grant wishes of Wyoming children. Call 307.266.0827 on April 29 to donate your unused airline miles. You can also donate them online at any time at www.wyoming.wish.org/miles. Daizy’s wish is among the 70 percent of Wyoming wishes granted annually that require air travel, in fact Make-A-Wish Wyoming could use 6 million miles each year to grant travel wishes of local children. If the chapter raises 1 million miles, it will receive a 500,000 miles match to help grant wishes of Wyoming children.
