Having a terminal illness does not stop children and young people from having dreams, or wanting to accomplish them.
Sarai, 17, has cancer, and unable to move her right arm, however she loves music, especially rock music, and one of her favorite bands is Moderatto, so she has always had the dream to learn how to play the guitar.
The Make a Wish Foundation, in collaboration with Telefonica Foundation, made Sarai’s dream a reality. Not only giving her a guitar and music lessons, but also arranging a special Moderatto meeting.
“It’s our honor to be a part of these kinds of activities that make other people happy, we play music so that other people can forget their problems,” said Bryan Amadeus, lead singer, as he signed Sarai’s guitar.
Ursula Nuñez, coordinator of Make a Wish Mexico, states that with the help of partners such as foundations, corporations, banks, and volunteers, they are able to fulfill the dreams of over 250 children from ages 3 – 17 throughout Mexico.
Among some of the foundations largest supporters is Telefonica Foundation, Mattel, KidZania, Disney World, and Bank of America.
Make a Wish arrived in Mexico City just over a year ago, however began its presence in Mexico in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco and they do not rule out the possibility of expanding to other states to help fulfil the dreams of other children.
