Long story short -- this cause is near and dear to both Michael’s heart and mine.
SALT LAKE CITY (PRWEB) November 06, 2017
Salt Lake City attorneys Diana J. Huntsman and Michael R. Lofgran, co-founders of Huntsman | Lofgran, PLLC, recently implemented a fundraising campaign through Make-A-Wish Utah’s online giving website. Their firm is committed to raising enough money to grant two children’s wishes ($11,000) between now and December 1.
“Michael and I have each had a child who faced life-threatening illnesses,” said Huntsman. “My son, Kyle, was 13 when we found out he had brain cancer. There was an immediate storm of surgeries, then chemo and radiation. In the midst of the craziness, Make-A-Wish gave Kyle the chance to pick a wish. It was an exciting, uplifting process, through which Kyle received a go-kart, an amazing party, and many memorable weekends riding in the mountains with family and friends. Each step of the way created bright moments of happiness in Kyle’s life and ours, which I will never forget.”
Michael’s daughter, Rachel, struggled with a failing kidney for years, and was also given the opportunity to make a wish. She picked an incredible trip to DisneyWorld with her family. It was again an amazing process with rays of sunshine from start to finish. Fortunately, Rachel and Michael (as Rachel’s donor) are both doing well now, having recuperated fully from a life-saving kidney transplant.
“Long story short -- this cause is near and dear to both Michael’s heart and mine,” concluded Huntsman.
To help meet their $11,000 goal, the firm will match whatever donations are made, up to $3,000. As part of the campaign, Huntsman | Lofgran will also host a local wish child, Ember, who is fun, filled with energy, but struggling with cancer, and surprise her with the news that her wish to go to Disney World is being granted.
