We helped a mom surprise her son at his graduation from Xray 189. He knew she didn’t have the funds to travel to his graduation and graciously accepted that no one would be there. Here is what his mom told us about her surprise.

”My son performed in the band during his graduation, and beforehand, he walked into the gymnasium and stopped dead in his tracks when he saw me. His mouth literally fell open, and he said, “Mom?” Then I got the biggest smile that I have seen from him since I gave him his first ice cream as a baby! He really thought no one was coming. After that, he seemed to walk a little taller, his chest puffed out with pride. After the graduation, he proudly marched me around, introducing me to everyone.”

It’s for those that we do what we do and if not for our donors, we couldn’t make those moments happen.

The mom went on to tell us, “I am so appreciative to all of you, and for the rest of my life, I will continue to ask any and all people that I meet to contribute to this wonderful organization! I want other parents to get to experience that I did, because that moment will live in me throughout my entire life. Thank you so much!!!”
