For 10 years, DEFENDERS has served the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This year will be no exception. Let's join together in kicking off our 10th annual Make-A-Wish campaign.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation strives to change the lives of kids with life-threatening illnesses by granting their wishes. They believe that a wish come true enriches the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Over the past 10 years, DEFENDERS has granted 80 wishes and has raised over half a million dollars!
This year our Wish Kid is Bodie. Bodie is a Star Wars-loving 6-year-old that is currently battling T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. The cancer is caused by the overproduction of immature white blood cells in the bone marrow. On a daily basis, Bodie suffers from extreme fatigue, and an overall decrease in his immune system that causes recurrent infections. Bodie's wish is to go to Walt Disney World and experience Star Wars Land.
