Selfless. Alli Williams is selfless.
The transplant has given her the chance to live. To experience life with her parents, friends, and classmates. But to also live for other people–to bring awareness to the disease that plagues way too many people and families.
“Wish Upon a Star,” a nonprofit organization near her hometown grants wishes to kids and teens who live with potentially fatal conditions.
And while many wish for fairytale adventures in Disneyland, front seat tickets to a Taylor Swift concert, or heck, a hot air balloon ride, Alli wanted something different.
She had one simple wish: to bring awareness to MPS. So that’s what she did! The organization helped her speak to the media about MPS and participate in community events, all in an effort to bring a voice to this terrible disease.
