We granted Tanner’s wish to outfit a bunk house at his parent’s cabin in Northern, WI in 2019 (https://www.facebook.com/wishesandmore/posts/3554922301200540). Three months after he cut the ribbon on his bunk house wish, he rang the bell for his last day of radiation! The end of treatment is always a major celebration. But what most people don’t realize is the years of scans and doctor’s visits that still remain. They also don’t realize the mounting fear and anxiety each time a follow up appointment is made. Tanner’s parents experienced the trauma of the diagnosis, the pain of watching their child go through treatments and now the “scanxiety” as the scans continue – even though they proudly watch their teenage son excel at Minnesota State University, Mankato. Tanner’s experience has him considering going into Pediatric Oncology and Wishes & More is thrilled to play a small role in his aspirations by supporting him with his Scholarship of Hope®. We are also thrilled to have his parents, Jason & Sue, as extraordinary volunteers. Jason built and installed custom cabinets for Paige’s upcycled container wish last summer, while Sue collaborated with friends to select and donate items to furnish Paige’s unique space. Sue coordinated a fundraiser of her own for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and selected Wishes & More as one of the recipients to benefit from her hard work. And recently, Jason designed and constructed a beautiful bed for little Savvy’s specific medical needs in her family’s home. We are incredibly grateful to hear that Tanner’s scans have continued to be clear and that he’s doing well with his college education; and we are also very thankful to his parents for remaining connected to our mission in support of other families.
