“After my first wish, I knew this was my volunteer calling,” said Cathy “I have loved every second of my experience with Make-A-Wish Arizona.”
With more than 80 wishes under her belt, Cathy has been around long enough to see the growth of the volunteer services around Arizona.
“There is now less time focusing on the process of the wish and there is more time given to creating relationships with wish kids and their families,” said Cathy, who believes these changes encourage volunteers to not only get started, but to stay involved after their first wish.
“I get to see the world through the eyes of the wish kids. Being a wish granter is one of the best things that has happened to me.”
Cathy’s time as a wish granter has enabled her to create amazing memories and caused her to realize how great her life truly is.
“The wish kids have been such an amazing example. I have watched what they go through and have learned to not take anything in my life for granted,” she said.
"Being a wish granter has changed my life for the better.”
