Here is a thank you letter Oxygen Concentrator/AMSR received from Make-A-Wish Colorado on April 20, 2016. Four-year old Zoie, achieved here dream of playing in the sand and swimming in the ocean.
Dear Mr. Vannatta,
Thank you for your recent gift of medical equipment rental. Your support is greatly appreciated and clearly reflects your commitment to our mission of granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. Please know that your contribution to Make-A-Wish has a very real and positive impact.
Zoie always imagined going on a beach vacation to see the ocean. Her one true wish was a trip to Newport Beach, California, and Make-A-Wish was about to make it come true. Zoie was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when she was six weeks old. Zoie, four-years-old, must adhere to a strict regimen of treatments and hospital visits. A beach vacation was the perfect distraction for her and her family.
Finally, arriving in Newport Beach, Zoie's dream of seeing the ocean came true. The family had a beach house right on the boardwalk allowing her to wake up seeing the glistening water each morning. Her first day at the beach, Zoie felt the sand between her toes and diped her feet into the chilly ocean; she loved being outside and soaking up the sun.
Zoie's mom and dad had always hoped to travel with her, but due to her medical condition, they were fearful of the process. "If this is the only vacation we can ever take with her, it was a perfect one." Zoie's dad, Derik, shared.
Thank you for helping us t share the power of a wish. We hope that you feel great joy in realizing the impact that contributions like yours have on the lives of our wish kids. Your generosity will help us to continue granting the wishes of very special Children!
