In the spring of 2016, Joyce Leidenfrost faced a devastating reality: she was diagnosed with cancer.
Because of her diagnosis, Joyce feels a special connection to the Make-A-Wish® mission to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. She was inspired to help make life-changing wishes come true for kids going through the same physical and emotional challenges she was facing.
Joyce designed and sold t-shirts in her hometown of Pierz, Minn., raising more than $5,000 to date with the proceeds going to Make-A-Wish® Minnesota. She hopes to raise even more throughout this year.
“Children shouldn’t have to go through this alone,” Joyce said. “If my situation could be turned around into something that helps bring a smile to a child’s face – then I’m happy to help.”
Thank you, Joyce, for bringing hope, strength and joy to local kids by helping make their wishes come true!
