Latest Status Update

  • "We didn’t want to hear that Ayden had qualified for such a wonderful wish opportunity. It simply made things too real, too scary. We were still in a bit of denial about the severity of Ayden’s situation. Yet, we were eager for something exciting to focus on, something fun to look forward to as a family. Ayden wanted to do something, anything, that didn’t involve doctors, procedures and more scary news. It ended with us having an amazing memory-building adventure in a galaxy far, far away." -Wish Mom, Kel
