Julia Wishes to Visit Her Family in Ghana

wish kid Julia
When Julia was battling cancer, her friends and family stood by her side, which made her feel incredibly special and strong. She knows that these people will remain in her life forever, and she wants to continue to surround herself with such loving support.

Although Julia was born in Ghana, she has not been back to visit in many years. Her parents share stories of her relatives there that make her laugh and feel full of love. Julia wishes to see her extended family in Ghana again so that she can get to know them and honor what matters most in her heart - family.

"When I picture myself in Ghana, I just imagine all of my relatives in a room, and we're talking and having a really good time," Julia said. "It takes so much to stay positive and having a wish has helped me stay positive. Make-A-Wish really gives you something to look forward to."
