Make A Wish - Team Diego
Report this Post

Many of you may remember, Diego:

My wife (Karen aka i.karen) has since become an active member of Make A Wish, and works directly with families in helping them see their wishes granted.

She has recently started running, and is doing a Run/Walk here in North Carolina to help raise funds...

This from her:

Team Diego

Most of you know, I'm a volunteer with Make A Wish Foundation. It gives me joy to see these kids and families smile. I volunteer with Make A wish because I saw, what they did for, a boy named Diego.

He earned his wings on December 24th, 2008 from a rare form of cancer. Diego, was my son's (Justice) best friend and his mom is mine. I could write a book about Diego and his family. The important thing is he has touched my heart!

I personally can't find a cure but I can help one child at a time.

Please join Team Diego for a 5k walk on March 25th and if you can't do that please donate, even a dollar to bring a child a smile!

Thanks so much

She does quite a bit, and it tears her up some times... Many times she has been the person working with the families to grant wishes, get it all lined up, only to have them die before the wish can be granted... But she doesn't give up.

She makes a difference in the lives of the kids, and the parents.
