Make-A-Wish is unable to grant a majority of wishes for sick Utah children during the pandemic, but that didn't stop a community from helping 16-year-old Madi from Orem.
Madi's cancer came back and doctors told her there was nothing else they could do at this point. Madi's wish was to go to Hawaii; which now, is unfeasible.
She was upset her trip was cancelled – and instead of giving up – the Cancer Warrior Foundation helped bring Hawaii to Madi. Watch this video to see how the whole thing turned out for her:
TRICK OR TREAT
Jeff Oliverson and his family really wanted some goodies during their quarantine. His sister-in-law was willing to drop off some Mountain Dew and Pop Tarts but with a catch. Jeff shared video captured from his front door which shows his sister-in-law is up to no good.
SWEETEST DONATION YET
Tucked away in Sugar House, Browniesx3 has made the sweetest donation possible.
With the help from locals, the brownie shop has given more than $1,000 worth of brownies to healthcare workers at various hospitals in Salt Lake City. St. Marks Hospital, LDS Hospital, Primary Childrens, ARUP Labs, and Utah Poison Control received top-tier baked goods to help alleviate how stressful their jobs are at the moment.
CHEERING UP THE FRONT LINE
Healthcare workers at the Huntsman Cancer Institute and Salt Lake Care Center were treated with appreciation letters from Utah students. Members of the softball team at Rowland Hall took the time to write letters expressing their gratitude to those working during the coronavirus. West Jordan Middle School students sent letters as well.
The students recognized some healthcare workers must be separated from their families during the trying times and wanted to do something to cheer them up.
