My step brother Mark Hotaling received his wish granted to go to disney world when he was a young teen. He had a rare genetic disorder called ataxia-telangiectasia which left him paralyzed from the waist down and in a wheel chair until he was diagnosed with hodgkins lymphoma and passed away 2 years ago at the age of 24. I am a firm believer that the make a wish foundation makes huge differences in the lives of children and young adults. I now have a make a wish logo on my bank of america debt card and continue to be grateful that Mark's wish was granted, otherwise he would have never experienced disney. Thanks again!
