INDIANAPOLIS, IN – The Indiana Sports Report is proud to announce a partnership with the Little Wish Foundation. The Indiana Sports Report will work closely help promote the Little Wish Foundation throughout Indiana and help grant wishes to children in need.
The Little Wish Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that was started by Liz Niemiec, at age 17, in the memory of Max Olson. Max was diagnosed with Wilm’s Tumor, a rare kidney cancer, In December of 2007. Unfortunately, his two and a half year battle ended on March 17, 2010. His courage and strength inspired Liz to keep his memory alive by helping other children with cancer.
Max’s little wish was to receive a dog, which his parents granted him. Liz saw how happy this made him so she decided she wanted to grant a “little wish” to other children suffering from cancer to bring them some happiness. This idea led to the creation of Little Wish Foundation. Over 255 “little wishes” have been granted and have given children with cancer hope, happiness and sometimes a reason to get through the day.
Currently, the Little Wish Foundation deliver wishes to pediatric oncology patients at South Bend Memorial, Riley Children’s Hospital, Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital, Lutheran Children’s Hospital and Riley North in Carmel. Some “little wishes” items that have been given include laptop computers, Xbox360 & PS3 gaming systems, iPads & iPods, concert tickets, spa treatments, TVs, blu-ray DVD players & movies, pretty dresses and much more.
