My good friend Dwan aka MommaDJane is very passionate about helping others and one of the foundations she enjoys helping is the Make A Wish Foundation.
For those who do not know, Dwan’s daughter, Gabby was sent to Give Kids The World by the Make A Wish Foundation. Taken from Dwan’s blog:
“We went in October of 2007 and her surgery was the first week of November. The ladies at Make-a-Wish literally put together our trip in less than a week! They were amazing. Everything happened so fast with Gabby’s doctors that we only had about two weeks to prepare for surgery. Being given seven days to ‘get away’ from reality and just live a dream was priceless. Watching Gabby smile and be treated like a princess was the best gift I could imagine.”
Dwan is a very caring, loving mother of three who is single on top of all this. Her and her daughters along with her mother are going to walk for Make A Wish Foundation to help raise funds. This is her way to say thank you for all Make A Wish has done for her daughter!
Dwan would be the last person throwing a pitty party for herself, she gets out there and gets things done. She is a single mom and at times we chat on the phone because even though I am in NH and she is in TX we feel a strong bond as friends, and doubt anything will ever take that away. She works hard trying to give back and volunteer time when she can. She even was recognized by Mom It Forward for her outstanding volunteer efforts! I must admit I look up to Dwan for all she does.
I am writing this blog post today, to see if you will pass the word around and help Dwan and her family raise funds for this walk. Make A Wish has made so many children’s dreams come true, please donate as little or as much as you can as your way to support the cause!
If you are unable to donate, but have a blog, please write about this. You can read more on MommaDJane.com.
