Each year hundreds of parents, right here in Michigan, hear the heart wrenching news that their child has a life threatening illness. The illness may have been discovered as part of their yearly check-up or they may have had a cold, flu or injury that just wouldn’t go away. For 12 year old Alicia it started with an occasional headache. When the headaches continued her doctor ordered an MRI and discovered Alicia had a malignant brain tumor… and this family’s battle with cancer began….
Alicia’s mom tells us “When the social worker at the hospital told us about The Rainbow Connection it was like a light at the end of the tunnel, something wonderful to look forward to during long and painful medical treatments. “ Alicia decided she wanted to go to California and ride the waves. She marked the calendar and counted down the days. The Rainbow Connection kept her spirits up with tickets to entertainment and sporting events, surprise packages in the mail and perhaps most important, a listening ear, day or night, whenever needed.
Alicia’s trip to California was more than a vacation. It was the break away from all things medical that she and her family so desperately needed. The gift of a dream come true provides a different kind of medicine to these brave children- the priceless gift of hope and joy.
There are children just like Alicia, in your community, who need your help. These brave children and their families are your neighbors. You can give them something to smile about at this incredibly difficult time.
