Local News

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — Karley Ware is among many other kids that have been financially supported by Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Ware was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when she was three months old. One of the things that have helped her stay positive is to have a wish granted by Make-A-Wish. She asked for an online shopping spree.

According to officials, the Make-A-Wish Foundation is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1980 to help fulfill the wishes of children with a critical illness in an age range of two to 18 years old.

Anyone interested in supporting the good cause of Make-A-Wish can participate in Walk for Wishes on Sunday morning at Hessel Park. For more information, visit Walk for Wishes website.

Ware’s mom will be at the event to show her support for the organization and to express her appreciation for what it has done to her daughter and her family.
