15-year-old Amanda, who battles a kidney disease, recently had her wish granted to meet the cast of @NCIS_CBS ! Amanda is a big fan and has watched every episode at least once, so she was thrilled when the cast gave her signed scripts of her choice. 📄 By the end of the day, Amanda could not stop talking about each moment and how special it made her feel. This is an experience she will never forget! Thank you #NCIS for hosting such a special day and granting life-changing wishes for kids like Amanda! ⭐ @makeawishlosangeles , @makeawish_CWNC

Our #HugsAndWishes series continues with wish kid Nicolas and his wish to give toys to children at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Following the devastating diagnosis of a brain tumor, Nicolas said that it was difficult feeling different than everyone else. He lost his hair, eyebrows, and had a sizable scar on his head. After being told he was eligible for a wish, his initial thought was asking for a giant pool or going to Bora Bora, but he ultimately decided to pay his wish forward to children like himself going through tough times. 💙 “I’m so grateful for getting the opportunity to do that. I’m more appreciative of the life I have. This situation taught me everything about what’s important in life”. Today, Nicolas is in remission, taking college courses and looking towards his bright future. 🌟 @makeawishlosangeles , #SpreadLove
