"The works of the Make-A-Wish Foundation inspired our community to come together and to be part of the enriching experience that wish-granting holds," says Victoria Cordi, Jillian's mother. "Jillian literally fought for her life, and even on her worst days she would ask, 'Is my playground coming?' In many ways, the updates from the Make-A-Wish staff and from the community members who were supporting the wish became a lifeline." On December 18, Jillian and her family celebrated at VFW Hall with all who helped make Jillian's wish come true.
Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. In 2010, the Metro New York chapter granted a record number of 531 wishes. For more information, contact the foundation at 516-944 6212 or visit www.metrony.wish.org.
