Yesterday we surprised Wish sibling Lily and the Mullin family. Lily wished for a Chuck E Cheese party and a trundle bed from the American Girl store. That was the easy part of the wish.
But we couldn’t stop there! When we found out how much lily loves her American Girl dolls we knew we had to do something truly special for her.
With the help of some amazing donors throughout the years, Melinda Ramsey and family, Matt Arquette from Nice and Easy, Chanel Rhodes from Liberty M...utual East Syracuse NY, Chuck E Cheese in Syracuse NY, American Girl Store Boston, and many more we were able to surprise the Mullin family with a trip to Boston Massachusetts to visit the American Girl Doll Store.
It didn’t stop there though.....
We were also able to give lily a very special, private, second birthday party at the store. Then she ventured over to the hair salon where she received a $100 gift card and her favorite doll got a makeover. The rest of their weekend is free to spend as they like enjoying each other’s company and having a blast!
We were able to put them up in a beautiful hotel with an indoor pool, rock climbing wall, and Game Center for the kids to enjoy when ever.
Thank you everyone who made this possible! Below are some pictures of the Mullins enjoying the Chuck E. Cheese party and their trip to Boston.

I am SO excited to introduce everyone to our first ever wish sibling, Lily!!
Lily is turning 8 this year and has wished for some pretty awesome things. Lily is younger sibling to Grant, Leukemia survivor and warrior.
A little background on Grant and Lily from mom Erin:
“Grant was diagnosed with ALL (acute lymphoblastic leukemia). On July 14, 2011. He had just turned four years old on July 4. He achieved remission one month into treatment. He finished his treatment in Sep...tember 2014. He has technically been in remission for six years but finished with treatment for three.
He is now 10 years old and in the fifth grade.
Lily was still in diapers when he was diagnosed. She was 20 months old. She was so good to him from day one. Occasionally she would go to his chemo treatment with us and go through all the motions with him. She could tell when he would get stressed and she would put her hand on his. She had so much empathy for her brother it was unreal. She was designed for it!”
Lily will be receiving her wish on November 10th at an awesome Chuck e Cheese birthday party.
We couldn’t have made this wish happen without some amazing sponsors and all those who have donated generously over the years.
We cannot wait to reveal her wish to everyone!

**We have an exciting opportunity coming up on June 18th, 2017. **
The volunteer director of the upcoming Ironman race contacted PSS about volunteering our time. In return we receive a grant that will fund our first ever wish!!!!! We have worked tirelessly over the last year and a half to raise funds to grant our first wish. This grant will finally put us in the position to do that!
What we need:...
On June 18th we will need approx 16 volunteers to help run the food and snack tent from 11am-4pm at Jamesville State Park in Jamesville NY. You will receive an Ironman t-shirt and I am working on hopefully getting some PSS t-shirts made as well.
This would be a great opportunity for high school juniors looking to fill their volunteer hours for college. Because we are a 501c3 non profit we can sign off on those hours.
If you are interested in being a part of this amazing opportunity and helping to grant the FIRST EVER wish for a sibling of a child with cancer than please contact me as soon as possible.
Phone (text only please): 315-256-8462

Come join us in welcoming Baby Frank Morley on October 29th, 2016 at 3:00pm. We do ask that, if possible, you bring a dish to pass and a lawn chair to sit in. No gifts necessary.
On Sunday July 17th, 2016 at 4:21 am it will have been two years since Paulie left his earthly body. So very much has happened in two years. We are just over 30... days away from welcoming Haiden and Paulies new baby brother, Nic and I decided to follow his dream and started our own business, we have seen many friends come and go, but mostly we have missed a major member of our family.
This year, just as last, I ask you honor and remember Paulie this Sunday. You can wear orange, change your profile picture (picture included below) for the day, speak his name, tell his story, do something kind in his name, or anything you can think of that you believe would honor him. I ask that what ever you do please share it with us.
They say your loved one dies a second death when no one speaks there name. This statement is unbelievably true. We have been so fortunate that people still speak Pauls name and remember him all the time. Thank you everyone for continuing to stick by us and honoring and remembering Paul over the last two years.
