Meet our Honorary Wish Family Chairs: The Massa Family
Maci Massaís wish to visit Disney World came true with the help of Make-A-Wish in November of 2012. Ever since Maciís wish at age 8, the Massa family has played an active role in the Make-A-Wish Illinois community. Jayme and Toni Massa are serving as Honorary Wish Family Chairs for the 2016 Moline Walk for Wishes and are motivated to make 2016 a fantastic year for the event. Due to Maciís diagnosis of Fanconi Anemia in October of 2005, the Massa family understands that when a child has a life threatening illness, it affects the entire family. The Massaís wish experience gave the family the opportunity to be kids again and provided a sense of normalcy that they havenít had in a long time.
The Massa family encourages teams and individuals to register and raise funds for the fifth annual Walk for Wishes Moline.
