The Joys of having CF

Good Morning! I haven't posted for quite a while, and I apologize. So, Today i'm going to try to get back in the swing of things. So I want to talk about Make~A~Wish.
Make~A~Wish is a foundation that grants wishes to sick children with illness's, such as Cancer, Various disorders that cause you to be sick, and go to the hospital quite often, and even Cystic Fibrosis. Yes you heard right. Most(not all)but most people from ages 2 1/2-18 who have a disorder like some of the ones I listed qualify for Make~A~Wish.
You can wish for just about anything, trips, pools, meeting famous people, shopping spree's, ANYTHING! and yes, I qualify for Make~A~Wish. I was offered my Make~A~Wish when I was 2 1/2 years old, but my parents turned it down and said we'd do it when I was older so I could choose my own Make~A~Wish. Now that i'm 15 1/2, I have been thinking about seeing if I still qualify and if so, putting in for my Make~A~Wish. To find out if you're eligable for Make~A~Wish, you either have to have your parents or social worker nominate you, and then if they think you qualify here are the steps that have to happen;
1)Have someone Nominate you
2)IF you qualify Make~A~Wish will call you and get some info from you
3)After they call you they will send some paperwork to your doctor(s) so they can say if they think you're eligable
4)IF your doctor(s) think you're eligable you will get *I believe* a letter in the mail saying if you are or are not.
5)Then *I believe* the Make~A~Wish person/people will come sit down with you to find out your dream
6)They go to work and your wish is Granted!
--It's a Wonderful thing. *When* I do mine I will let everyone know and keep them posted.
But the reason i'm writing about this is because I'm so grateful to all those people who donate money to the Make~A~Wish Foundation, because if it wasn't for you, makeing people's wishes come true would not be possible, so if you are someone who has ever donated money the the Make~A~Wish Foundation, I want you to know how grateful I am for you, because any little bit you do helps someone's dream/wish come true!

Remember; "Dreams DO come true, they really do"


  1. Wow it works alot differnet now. I got to go to Disney world for the day when I was 13. It was the first time they had done it so it was really unorganized and of course was 21 years ago lol. The clinic just called up my parents and asked if id like to go and if so meet at the airport at a certain date and time. Wasnt really much of my choice.
    Anyways good luck :) and hope it provides you many memories.

  2. I think the Make a Wish foundation is awesome. Whatever you pick to do I hope you have the time of your life. You deserve it. You are such an inspiration. Miss you.
