From Mother to Wish Mom - Lori

Lori and Brinkley
THIS MOTHER’S DAY WE CELEBRATE WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A WISH MOM.

We invite you to read what local wish moms are saying, as they have seen the life-affirming mission of Make-A-Wish firsthand. Mother’s like Lori, whose daughter experienced a break from her daily medical treatments and was given the life-transforming gift of a wish.

Q: What impact would you say Brinkley's wish had on you and your family?

A: Brinkley’s wish was something that our family looked forward to with great anticipation. After spending many days and nights in the hospital, it was an opportunity to just be together, relaxing, and not talking about medical-related stuff. It was such a refreshing experience!

Q: Now that you’ve seen firsthand the mission of Make-A-Wish, what do you think it means to be a “wish mom”?


A: After enjoying our daughter’s wish trip, the concept of Make-A-Wish is so personal now. In the past, when I’d hear Make-A-Wish, I thought it sounded like a wonderful thing. Now, I associate it as an opportunity for families to enjoy life deeply with each other and make precious memories. I’ll never forget the time we were able to spend together in Kauai.

Q: Why do you think it’s important to support Make-A-Wish?

A: Supporting Make-A-Wish is so important! I’ll forever have etched in my mind the smiles on the faces of the four girls on our trip experiencing what they’d dreamed of for so long. These girls had been through so much in their short lives!

Q: If you had to tell outsiders one thing about the power of a wish, what would it be?


A: The power of a wish is something that can’t be measured. It restores hope and provides strength for kids and their families to continue down the paths that they’re on.
