Been awhile

Sorry, it has been awhile since I posted anything. Lots of Wishes happening for adults with terminal illness here in the Boise area. Just had a family get back from Disneyland, and another one today back from a Wish to go to Arrlington National Cemetery. Coming up another Disneyland Wish from a young man with terminal Cancer who wants to go with his small children before he is unable to. We have a young woman with terminal Cancer who wants to go to New York city with her 14 year old son, and a Grandfather with Terminal Cancer who wants to fly his Grand Daughter in for Christmas. Plus a bunch more we are working on. Check out our web site at for a more complete list.

Some days it just seems it is all piling up at the same moment. So many Wishes that need to happen, such a big need for donations at

Just found out we lost Wayne on Monday. His Wish had been a wood shed, which was completed in June. His wife had passed away just a few days before he did. Our thoughts and prayers go out to their families. At this point we have two Wishes that will happen in November and at least two more in December. You can help these and other Wishes happen by going to and making a donation.

Just got a Wish from a woman who wants to see her husband one more time. He is out of state with his mother who is also very ill. Sometimes I think I have problems.

Sad news

Working for Wish Granters has it's ups and downs. Earlier this week we learned that David was put on the transplant list, which is great news. His Wish had been a trip to New York City with his wife. Today we found out that Larry had passed away, his Wish had been a roll in shower. Both of those Wishes happened in July.  It's sad when you lose someone, but it is a little easier if their Dream had come true. It means memories for their families that they wouldn't have had otherwise.  We just have to keep going and raise as much money as possible to do as many Wishes as possible. We can only do what we can do, but I have this drive to do a little bit more each day.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Larry's family. Check out our web site at to see the Wishes we are working on.

Wish Granters

Hi all: Actually I don't know if there is anyone out there or not :o)  Wish Granters is 501(c)(3) non-profit that grants Wishes to adults 18 and older in the Boise Idaho area who have terminal illnesses. We come into the lives of these individuals and give them something to look forward to, something to hold on to. We also give their families a memory they can have forever. You can learn more about us by going to

I am the founder and Executive Director of Wish Granters and will try to keep you up to date on Wishes completed and those we are working on. We hope you will want to get involved in helping these Wishes come true. If you live in the Boise area you can become a volunteer, but you don't have to live here to make a donation on our web site, which is our biggest need. Please go to our web site where you can see a list of Wishes we have completed this year and those we are working on. 

The reason we were formed was that not enough was being done for adults with terminal illnesses and their families. Through Wish Granters you truly can make a difference in the lives of people you may never know. Yes, even in today's world one person can make a difference.

I look forward to hearing from you as we move forward.
