Help make Zachary’s Wish Come True!

Jun 2, 2012   //   by admin   //   2011 Blog, 2012 Blog  //  No Comments

As most of you know, the 3on3forNiebs began last year (2011), as an effort begun by the family and friends of Andy Niebler  (who was battling brain cancer and has since passed away).  Those of us involved simply wanted to give the Niebler family something positive to focus on during a difficult time in their lives.  We also hoped to raise some money for Andy’s escalating medical costs; which we did, thanks to all of you who came out to support the 3on3forNiebs!  Due to the severity of Andy’s illness, Make A Wish of Wisconsin ® also granted Andy HIS WISH.  Andy wished for a fort in his own backyard.  Andy watched as Make A Wish of Wisconsin ® constructed this right outside his window:

Unfortunately, Zachary Sprader, another child from Andy’s school (also in 5th grade) has been stricken with and is battling Leukemia this year.  Zachary is currently undergoing treatments at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.

In the spirit of giving, and spreading hope and JOY to Zachary and his family, 3on3forNiebs is raising money to MAKE ZACH’S WISH COME TRUE!  By supporting 3on3forNiebs in 2012, money will be ear-marked for Zach so that whatever Zach’s wish is, it will be granted through Make A Wish of Wisconsin.®  No word yet on what Zach’s wish is yet, or when it will happen, but as soon as details are announced, we will let you know!

Let’s help another Waukesha kid get his wish!  Together we can work to fight cancer AND spread hope and joy to those struggling through it.
