The Story of a Mother and Daughter

My mom and I did everything we could to cram 100 years of memories into the 24 years I had with her. I can’t thank my volunteers, that camera store, and Make-A-Wish enough for giving me the ability to capture her journey. Those pictures are everything to me.

Chi Omega Serina Shares her Experience with Make-A-Wish

Serina group photos with wish kid and LAX
Never in a million years did I think a philanthropic organization would have such an impact on my life. As a second year in college, aspiring to be a special education teacher, I didn’t imagine that I would consider a future that goes beyond teaching. Make-A-Wish expanded my views on selflessness and hope.
