Wish Round Up

Our CHALLENGE to our followers…please help us raise money to benefit Make-A-Wish Foundation! The money we raise stays local and grants wishes for children with life threatening illnesses. A “WISH” is not just a trip or something new for a child…a “WISH” is HOPE! It’s something positive to look forward to, something good and exciting. A “WISH” is a change of mindset and takes the focus off illness, treatments, doctors, and negative thoughts. A “WISH” will create lifelong memories for a family, and sometimes changes lives forever!
Please….please support our Wish Kids!!

This past year Maddie Watkins, the 8 year old daughter of Tim and Trina Watkins started complaining of headaches. Bad headaches. Through a barrage of tests and surgeries her doctors in Nevada diagnosed ependymoma tumors. The tumor biopsy was sent to St. Judes. St. Judes diagnosed glioma tumors, Glioma is a broad category of brain and spinal cord tumors that come from glial cells, brain cells that can develop into tumors. The symptoms, prognosis, and treatment of a malignant glioma depend on the person’s age, the exact type of tumor, and the location of the tumor.

Maddie will require six months of chemotherapy followed by two months of radiation. Both therapies will be extremely strong, essentially the strongest that someone her age and weight can handle. All treatment will take place in Las Vegas. Maddie’s family and friends are tremendously committed to doing whatever it takes to help Maddie conquer and defeat her cancer.

The funds raised will go towards housing costs, travel costs and medical services. We ask that the community join our fight for Maddie! #warriormaddie #PDgivesback
