Wishing for Mommy is a campaign that Dignity Kids began in October of 2013 in an effort to help a few local families out in Arizona. After the rest of the United States caught wind of what was going on, the campaign went national in a matter of days and Dignity Kids received tremendous support from donors all around the country. With this, 25 children received a very special check in the mail to assist them in making their wish for their mommy come true while she battles breast cancer.
