"Stage IV cancer," some of the scariest words a family can hear. In 1995, at the age of six, local wish kid Steven was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. He faced difficult years of treatment, but his life transformed in 1997 when his wish to meet Dan Marino of the Miami Dolphins came true. The wish brought Steven a hope that he had been missing for years.
Today, Steven is a happy and healthy 28-year-old, and his family can still trace the impact of his wish on their lives. Steven’s mom, Betsy, serves on the board of directors for Make-A-Wish®
Mid-Atlantic and is committed to bringing the power of a wish to other families in need. Betsy shared, “Make-A-Wish brought light, hope and huge smiles back into our world.”
