Make-A-Wish is one of the Goodfellows
Sasha Downing is a friend, a smile maker and a wish granter for sick children. She has volunteered for Make-A-Wish North Texas since 2009.
In 2008, Downing’s late son, Andrew Villareal, was granted his wish of going to Disney World and meeting Mickey Mouse. He passed away in April 2012 from renal failure.
“It’s memories we’ll have forever,” Downing said of their trip.
Andrew was born with a heart defect and because of this Downing works with other Make-A-Wish kids who have heart conditions.
