I wish to have a swim spa 


juliana-smallJuliana’s happiest moments are when she is in the water. She previously had the opportunity to go to hydrotherapy appointments and enjoyed each and every moment, but the long commute to the appointments made it difficult to continue the therapy. When Juliana and her family first met with the Make-A-Wish® wish-granting volunteers, it was clear that Juliana’s one true wish was to have a swim spa at her home.

On the day that Juliana’s spa was finished, Make-A-Wish volunteers, friends and family came together to celebrate Juliana’s wish. Juliana tried out the swim spa right away and giggled and sang the entire time she was splashing in the water.  Not only is time spent in her swim spa fun, but Juliana also finds relief in the water, and it provides opportunities for physical therapy right outside the family’s door.

“It was such a wonderful moment to watch her enjoy the swim spa. She was overjoyed,” shared Juliana’s mother. “Not only has this gift provided my little girl with happiness, it has given me the gift of seeing my daughter smile. Priceless. Please extend my ‘thank you’ to everyone. What a gift!”
