May Volunteer of the Month: Krystal Alegria

Krystal Alegria began her relationship with Make-A-Wish Arizona four years ago.

"I went through a time in my life where I lost sensation in both my legs for a span of a year and four months," Krystal said. "While I was in the hospital, I saw how doing something so simple like giving a kid a toy could affect the way they looked at their illness and their recovery."

This sparked Krystal's interest in wish granting, and she soon became one of the first participants in the Assistant Wish Granter program.

"I still remember the exact date of my first volunteer training with Make-A-Wish Arizona," Krystal said. "I originally thought I wouldn't be able to be a wish granter, but I loved watching how excited and grateful these kids became with every wish!"

From that point forward, Krystal said the rest was history.

And now, with 12 wishes granted and counting, Krystal hopes to continue granting wishes as long as she possibly can.
