Martin’s trip made a world of difference providing emotion strength for him and his family during his fight against cancer.

    • I wish to go to Lake Tahoe with my family

NATIONAL PARTNER, BRISTOL-MYERS SQUIBB, MAKES WISHES COME TRUE

When Martin, 4, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, his life was turned upside-down. With treatments and numerous hospital stays, the opportunity for a Make-A-Wish® experience was a welcomed distraction.

When Make-A-Wish volunteers asked Martin what his one true wish would be, he chose a wish that would combine everything he loves: staying in a cabin near the water, all his favorite outdoor activities, and spending time with his family.

Thanks to our partnership with Bristol-Myers Squibb, his wish quickly transformed into the opportunity to go on a trip with his family to Lake Tahoe where Martin could stay in a cabin near the water, go to the beach, enjoy outdoor activities like horseback riding and a boat tour, all the while spending some much-needed quality time with his family. Martin’s trip made a world of difference providing emotion strength for him and his family during his fight against cancer.

Thank you Bristol-Myers Squibb for making wishes like Martin’s come true!  Your generous gift means the world to us.
