Hope sent an update on the wish for Melissa.

Hello Maria, Thank you so much for granting this wish for Melissa! She truly appreciate your kind heart. She even sent in a thank you note! Here is a glimpse of the wonderful words she had to share: "I cannot express how grateful I am to you. It is so easy to take sight and general access to healthcare for granted. I feel blessed to have someone like you care enough about my well-being to act towards my cause." We hope you enjoy this thank you note as much as we have!
