Wendy McSwiggan wrote, “Our middle son Aidan was diagnosed with cancer during his junior of high school (2017). This is a picture from his Make-A-Wish trip to Ireland this summer. We visited McSwiggan’s Pub (same last name, no relation) in Galway, Ireland. It was a fantastic trip—Make-A-Wish outdid themselves. And Aidan is currently cancer-free.”

The Make-A-Wish Foundation ( “creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.” People can use the referral page of their website to learn more about referring a child under the age of 18.
