makes a tremendous difference in the lives of hundreds of children across the state of Michigan each

year. In the midst of health challenges, 391 medically eligible children have received the gift of a wish

come true with more than 430 additional wishes expected to come true within the next 12 months.

    Our heartfelt thanks to all those who support our mission and the hopes and dreams of the

special children we serve. From the contributed hours of time and talents of our dedicated volunteers
                                                                                                    SM

                           How Wishes Come True
The magic of a wish begins when a child is referred to Make-A-Wish by a parent or guardian, healthcare professional, or

the child him/herself. After making sure the child is medically eligible for our services, Make-A-Wish volunteers meet with

the child and their family. It is then that they are asked the ever important question, “If you could have just one wish, what

would it be?” With much excitement and creativity, the child imagines what their heart desires most and a wish is born!

Every aspect of that wish is explored to create the most magical and unique wish experience possible. No matter what

the type of wish, each is a dream come true and a special experience the child will cherish forever. Most of our wishes

fall into one of four categories.




I wish to go...                     I wish to have...                  I wish to be...                   I wish to meet...

                                                        When 17-year-old Mason from
                                                      Comstock Park was asked the ever
                                                      important question…if you could
                                                      have one wish what would it
                                                      be….his mind began working over-
                                                      time! After careful consideration
                                                      and weighing all the options, Mason
                                                      decided on his perfect wish.
                                                      Because of frequent trips in and out
                                                      of hospitals due to seizures, a
                                                      result of his diagnoses of epilepsy
                                                      and diabetes, Mason chose to
                                                      simply relax with his family in the
                                                      warm San Diego sun!
                                                        Along with his family, Mason
                                                      received a VIP tour of the San
                                                      Diego Zoo, visited Knotts Berry
                                                      Farm, and enjoyed a memorable
                                                      day at Sea World, where he and his
                                                      brother were splashed by Shamu!
                                                      Another fun highlight for the family
                                                      was a day at Mission Beach where
                                                      everyone enjoyed the warm sun
                                                      and hours of fun in the ocean.
                                                      Mason’s mom said, “The kids loved
                                                      playing in the sand. They were
                                                      covered from head to toe! It was
                                                      truly a trip of a lifetime for our family
                                                      and it came when we really needed
                                                      a break from our everyday struggles!
                                                      Mason just needed to be 17-year-
                                                      old Mason.”

  What young boy wouldn’t love his very own custom-built tree fort? It is a place where the

imagination comes alive and a child’s spirit is sparked and fun begins. Diagnosed with

Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia, Alan of Brighton was faced with many hours of doctors’

visits and hospital stays. When presented with the opportunity to have a special wish,

Alan spent hours in the hospital dreaming and planning his perfect tree fort, while focusing

on the fun days ahead. Mom said, “Alan was able to see how everyone around him loved him

enough to build his “wish.” While Alan was in the hospital we were able to think and plan

about his tree house and keep his mind off how sick he was.”

  Alan spent hours upon hours drawing a sketch of his idea, which included a log-style

house, doors and windows. The builders did their best to match those ideas log by log. Alan,

who is the Foundation’s 5,000 wish kid, is thrilled with his special fort, where he enjoys

playing with his siblings and friends while focusing on the fun of being a kid and not the

trials of being diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition.

  Despite the fact that 4-year-old Heather could no longer vocalize her dreams due to a

neurological disorder, it was evident that her wish was to travel to magical Walt Disney World®

Resort where she would meet all the princesses and characters during an entire week of

FUN! Heather was certainly eager to meet Mickey and Minnie Mouse as well as many other

Disney characters and she had no idea what the park had in store for her!

  According to her mom, “We relaxed and enjoyed every moment. Heather had such a great

time. She enjoyed her wish very, very much. She was all smiles. They spoiled her rotten, she

loved all the attention. It was a beautiful thing to see her smile so much and watch the whole

family’s joy and excitement with all the great things we were able to see and do. We also

enjoyed just being a family having a stress-free time. I could have never done this for her.

I thank you so much for giving her such a wonderful experience.”

  Monica said, “This experience helped me realize how much people are willing to help one
another. I wanted to help, and then everyone wanted to help. It was really a pay-it-forward
movement. Make-A-Wish was amazing, the volunteers and staff…really anyone that was
involved in my wish!! They brought so much joy and light into my life during a really dark time
when I was facing a difficult and scary medical crisis. My experience was awesome and
I can’t thank Make-A-Wish enough.”

                          Fiscal Year Highlights
     Fiscal year 2007 was filled with extraordinary wishes for our special wish kids and many significant
         highlights for the Foundation along the way. A few of the many highlights are noted below.

                            Detroit Of ice Now Open!
This past June the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Michigan became an official member of the Detroit Community
when they opened the doors to their new Detroit office. Part of the Detroit Medical Center (DMC), the Make-
A-Wish offices are located inside the Old Hutzel Building (connected to the Kresge Eye Institute) at 4707
St. Antoine Street. The opening of this office allows the Foundation to be closer to one of our top referral sources
– providing convenience and increased program services to our families and medical professionals.

                 Make A Dif erence Day Campaign
Created by USA Weekend, Make A Difference Day is a national day of helping others. On this day, everyone

is encouraged to volunteer time, resources or both to support a local cause. UAW-GM has lent their support to

this event for the past three years through a nationwide Dealer Campaign to support the local Make-A-Wish

Chapters. In 2006, in support of the October 28th Make A Difference Day, the Michigan Chapter saw its largest

support yet. Twenty-one Michigan Dealers signed on to the program and, along with UAW-GM Center for

Human Resource's incentives and dollar for dollar match, we were able to raise more than $150,000* and grant

nearly 20 heartfelt wishes.

* Special thanks to Hamilton Chevrolet and Gordon Chevrolet for their significant contributions to the Campaign.

                           Fiscal Year Highlights

                                         Heroes Hurrah!
The third and final day of the WAM 300 Bicycle Tour is the day the riders dream about with a “Heroes
Hurrah” ending celebration!
Upon their finish riders are met by a large cheering section filled with family, friends, and wish children greeting
them with hand-made “YOU DID IT” signs and an eruption of applause and cheers.
Enthusiasm was in the air as the riders crossed the finish line in 2007 at the Chelsea Fairgrounds for the
Heroes Hurrah! event, sponsored by Eaton. Over 2,500 people – including the 700 riders and their loved ones
and nearly 100 special wish children – our "wish heroes" – enjoyed an all-day party worthy of the 20th
anniversary milestone!
A delicious meal, provided by Carrabba's of Novi, and a live band "Michigan's Official Band” Steve King & the
Dittilies – guaranteed that the atmosphere was electric! Of course there were bounce houses, crafts,
cotton candy, and clowns galore to keep the kids smiling from ear to ear!
Each rider was cheered, massaged, fed, and then adorned with a gold medal, placed around their neck by
their own personal wish hero, in a heart-warming ceremony. The cyclists dedicate the 300-mile ride to a
designated “wish child” and wear a bracelet with this child’s name as motivation to keep pedaling. When they
finally meet at the “celebration at the finish line” it is often tear-filled joy that joins these two amazing people we
call a rider and a hero.

Students of all ages in our Michigan communities join together to make a big impact in children's lives through
the Foundation’s Kids for Wish Kids/Collegiate Wish Champions (KFWK/CWC) program. Whether through
penny wars, dance-a-thons or fun runs, our youngest supporters set a wonderful example of philanthropy and
caring. KFWK/CWC participants raised more than $152,000 in support of making wishes come true during FY 2007.
