2011 Annual Report
Tiffany and friends in the hospital during her relapse in 1987.
Wish of a Lifetime
On Halloween night 1984,
12-year-old Tiffany dressed up like
a skunk. She slept long and hard
after a night running door to door
trick or treating and binging on
sugary snacks. But, while she slept,
her mom lay awake worried about
the bruises that kept appearing on
her lethargic and pale daughter.
suffered a relapse. Tiffany recounts
the next chapter of her story in her
own words:
“
The next day, Tiffany was airlifted
to Seattle Children’s and several
days later diagnosed with Severe
Idiopathic Aplastic Anemia, a rare
disease where the bone marrow
does not produce sufficient blood
cells to replenish blood supply
to the body, ultimately causing
system failure. Against all odds,
Tiffany won this round and was
released into outpatient treatment.
But, Tiffany returned to Children’s
as a high school freshman, having
2
I was in this very lonely
place when, on an otherwise
unremarkable afternoon, my
mom mysteriously fidgeted in the
living room. The doorbell rang
and a different kind of journey
began. Make-A-Wish had arrived
and I was drawn into a world
where my fear was transcended,
where strangers would give
everything they had to open my
eyes to the beauty and power of
my dreams.
I had dreamed of someday
becoming a professional dancer.
Unfortunately, due to the
complexities of my treatment
Tiffany and her family.
I met my idol before he went
onstage and it’s impossible to
describe the feeling of being with
him. He was warm and kind and
real – my heart was full and my
head was spinning as I was escorted
to my seat just as the show began.
The concert was phenomenal and
just when I thought the evening
couldn’t get any better, I was
handed a small slip of paper,
inviting me to dance with him on
stage. I danced…for what seemed
like an instant and a lifetime all
at once. I slept more soundly that
night than I had in years.
Make-A-Wish was there when
I graduated from high school,
celebrated my college graduation,
married my college sweetheart,
Ben, and launched into a healthy
adult life.
I am now a wife, a mother, a
professional…and yet still very
much a wish child... Standing
backstage with my 80’s idol, I
realized that I had been given a gift
so much greater that what I had
wished for. Before that moment
I had been alive but too afraid to
truly live. The boundaries around
my heart fell away and I stepped off
of the plane upon returning home
and fully embraced the life that
I had been given without fear. It
is not an exaggeration to say that
when I think about my wish my
feelings are as strong as they were
in 1988. That memory is a peaceful
and energizing place for me – a
touchstone to remind me that there
is something to discover about my
own character in every challenge
and something deep inside of me
that can weather any storm. I am
inspired every day by the power of
our mission and in this way, my
wish has literally lasted a lifetime.

wish story online at

“
and the impact to my body that
dream had been pushed out of my
reach. I wished to dance with my
favorite 80’s pop star because I had
intended to reach the concert stage
as a dancer through hard work and
perseverance. Instead, I reached it
through the grace of the Make-AWish mission and the experience
changed me forever.

Letter from Leadership
It was in June of 1985 that Bob
Cleaveland and Greg Wong left
Washington to attend a conference
for life insurance sales leaders. As
they sat in a room with more than
5,000 others, these two unsuspecting
individuals were on the verge of a
decision that would change their
lives and thousands of others. And,
they didn’t even know it.
Barely out of its infancy,
representatives from Make-A-Wish
4
presented an incredible story about
a very ill child who wished to be
a police officer for a day and the
community that rallied together to
make his wish a reality. But, the
story didn’t end there. Out of this
one wish, an inspiring organization
grew from zero to 50 (chapters)
in just five years and they were
seeking the help of others to make it
blossom further.

From Humble Beginnings
Bob and Greg were just those
individuals to bring this
organization to the Northwest. It
started with just the two of them,
and then quickly a third, Penni
Maples, joined their ranks to
complete their motivated team.
In January of 1986, Make-A-Wish
Washington was born.
Today, our local Make-A-Wish
chapter has grown from a handful
of dedicated individuals committed
to making wishes come true to a
sophisticated organization with
offices in Anchorage, Seattle and
Spokane, a professional staff and
nearly 500 volunteers spanning two
states who work together to grant
about 300 wishes annually.
threatening medical conditions. For
many of them, it marks a turning
point in their fight against their
illnesses. For their doctors, nurses
and other health professionals, the
wish experience works in concert
with medicine to make their
patients feel better, emotionally and
even physically. We thank all those
whose dedication and support has
allowed our organization to thrive
and we look forward to the next 25
years.
Warmest wishes,

A Wish Never Fades
We dedicate this section to the memory of the beautiful wish recipients
who are no longer with us. It is an honor to have been part of bringing joy
to them during their short lives. Though many of the children we serve
overcome their life-threatening medical conditions, sadly, others do not.
We honor those children who lost their battle this past fiscal year
(September 1, 2010—August 31, 2011).
