Testimonials / Thank You letters
Today is a stressful and exciting day for Make-A-Wish, because such a gala certainly requires a lot of effort. Please excuse me for writing to you today, but it is very important to me. There has always been a lot to do over the past few months and I have always put off writing my letter of thanks to you and the Make-A-Wish organisation. I just didn’t know how to put my overflowing heart into words.
I would like to express my sincere thanks to all of you as Andreas’ mother. Andreas was able to be a part of such a great project and the CD is overwhelmingly beautiful.
I was deeply touched by the results that were seen and heard on the Net, as well as our friends and relatives.
When one reads the general press or hear the news, or sometimes even listens to people talking, the world appears to be full of suffering, war, resentment, and disaster. I always say there is something else to tell and tell the story of Make-A-Wish. Most of people are not familiar with this organization and are amazed once they hear about it.
For Andreas, the possibility of recording a CD was definitely a great support and drive in the probably most difficult time of his life. In the middle of the chemo time there was this ray of hope, which also brought distraction from everyday life, the anticipation and excitement on how everything will turn out. Always a spotlight, the photos, the cover, the video. We talked about it over and over again in the hospital and often difficult hours were brightened up with light.
Not only is the CD that Andreas can present his song and show his talent so extraordinary, but also the fact that this was allowed to happen together with his brother. When I as a mother watch this video, tears run down my cheeks every time and my heart is full of gratitude and love, of course for my wonderful sons but also for this idea and both the people who are so committed to it and the companies who help.
It is very difficult to express all thanks, respect and appreciation with words.
So I will simply conclude by saying thank you once again from the bottom of my heart and good luck for today.
Andrea’s mother, Neuhofen, 28. April 2012
