Umbrian Adventure

As most of my readers know, I have been a big supporter of Make-A-Wish for many years. And, one of the ways I support them is to attend their events and buy some of the fantastic once-in-a-lifetime adventures that pop up from time to time in their auctions.

Wish Alum Michelle Gives Back as Make-A-Wish Intern

Michelle
When I was two years old, I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Three years later, at the age of five, I finished my last round of chemo treatment and was declared cancer free! Shortly after this, Make-A-Wish San Diego granted my wish, to go on a Disney Cruise. My wish was very special to my family and me—it was our first ever family vacation. My dad had experienced a heart attack during one of my many rounds of treatment and had been in and out of the hospital right after I went into full remission.

Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area Grants 8000th Wish!

8000 wishes
Remember 1984? The year has long been associated with the dystopian book of the same name, but in reality, it was the year the first Apple Macintosh computer went on sale, along with the first commercially-produced CD players and floppy disks. The U.S. hosted the summer Olympics in Los Angeles that year, but Russia boycotted them. The average price of a movie ticket was $2.50.
