UPS Is Granting BIG Wishes And You Can Help! #WishesDelivered
Helping Wishes Come True Can Be Powerful
I know someone very special who is helping make wishes come true. Two years ago, a friend of mine passed away from a quick and aggressive cancer. She touched the lives of many with her smile and funny wit. My friend could always spin things so you saw the best parts of your life, even when you thought you were having the worst day. I will never forget the year I was at a holiday playgroup party and we found out our Santa was stuck in traffic. She was the first to step up and agree to play Santa for all the kids so they would not be disappointed.
The year she was diagnosed, her husband and several of their friends started racing in a bike race for cancer research. My friend was there to cheer on the team the first year, and every year their team works and rides harder. This year her husband and their team were able to raise over $50,000 for cancer research. He is taking his pain of losing a beautiful wife and mother, and channeling it into good that will help the wishes of so many other cancer patients and their families come true. When you add action behind your wishes, so many people can be helped. I wish that everyone could beat cancer. My friend’s husband is putting action behind his wish.

Meet Leslye Borden, a person with who believes in the healing power that warmth can bring.
