Having recently moved from California to Arizona, Mikaya and M'Tima had to leave all of their friends and family behind to start their "new adventure." 

Wishing for Mommy received their nomination for their mommy, Brenda Hamilton after she had been through a double mastectomy AND beat Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Through the move to AZ and the diagnosis just two months later, the girls were bummed that they still had not really finished moving in and decorating.They wished to be able to decorate their mommy's room since she had been spending a lot of time in it. Wishing for Mommy awarded brave Mikaya and sweet little M'Tima a $500 check to make it happen! 

In visiting with the Hamilton family, it was evident that Brenda's 'conqueror' spirit was the same spirit that her two beautiful girls had in writing in to Wishing for Mommy. Best wishes to you, Brenda M'Kaya and M'Tima!

You wouldn't think that the typical 17-year old boy would have the room in his schedule full of high school, homework, girls and video games to put fourth the kind of love and effort that our committee saw in this particular nomination from Noah Hendry. 

Noah wrote in to the Wishing for Mommy team to nominate his mother, Vicki Hendry and he did a beautiful job in painting the picture for us of what true humility looks like, especially in a 17 year old boy. His wish for his mommy was to help her remember that she was beautiful again because this is what he and his sister saw in her, even amidst the loss of her hair, eyelashes and eyebrows. 

With the help of our grant funds and the team at Dolce Salon and Spa, Wishing for Mommy was able to grant Noah's wish and present him with a $500 check and trip to the spa to have a full makeover to enable him to make his wish come true. 

In the picture above, you can see Vicki embracing her son after he reads his wish out loud to her just days after she is released from the hospital from her double mastectomy, also just a week before Christmas.
