Each week we bring you stories of children struggling with life threatening illnesses and watch as their wishes turn to reality with the help of the Make A Wish Foundation.
This week we introduce you to 5 year-old Mariano Guzman who is from Santa Maria and struggling with A.L.L. a form of leukemia. George Shapiro decided to work with the Make A Wish to make Mariano's dream come true. Mariano wished for a Transformer party at Peter Piper Pizza in Weslaco and the festivities came complete with five pinata's, Power Ranger appearances and a Transformer cake and gifts.
Call the Make A Wish Foundation at 956.686.WISH to help grant wishes or volunteer for any services.
