Laura's Wish


Hi! My name is Laura Jones. This is “Laura’s wish”. 

I was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in August of 2017 when I was 9 years old. I was very sick and immediately hospitalized. I couldn’t believe what I was going through and I asked God, “why me”. It was very hard. But, I  had a lot of prayers and support from family and friends. I also got gifts such as toys and crafts from friends and strangers. Ever so often I got a gift from a stranger, someone I didn’t know. It’s hard to explain how it made me feel. But, I felt so many people praying for me more than I ever thought. It made me feel loved. 

As I was at the hospital I noticed a lot of kids didn’t get many toys. Some had very little. Getting a toy or craft helped me get through my suffering. Sometimes I was so sick that some gifts gave me something to hold on to. What I want to do with “Laura’s wish” is to make a way for kids to get toys when they are in the hospital.  If you can send a toy to a child it means so much. Believe me.  They will remember your love. Every bit makes them feel less alone. 

Please help me to show other kids how much they are loved. 

God is good. God is love. It is good to be loved! Laura
