KINGS MOUNTAIN, N.C. -- Like most kids her age, 10-year-old Kylie Newlin loves her dog.
"We're gonna grant about 200 wishes this year,” said Lisa Nowak, Director of Development for Make-A-Wish Central and Western North Carolina.
But granting those wishes can be costly.
The "average cost of a wish is $6,000,” she said.
That’s where Isaac Pearson comes in. For the last couple of years, he’s been raising money for Make-A-Wish through a club that he started at Kings Mountain High School and a musical benefit in downtown Kings Mountain called “Jammin For Wishes.”
"Our first year we raised around $1100. Last year, we raised $800,” said Pearson. "This year, our goal is for Kings Mountain collectively to grant one wish which is $6000."
"It would just mean a lot knowing that a wish was strictly because of ‘Jammin For Wishes.’ We did this and it would be a great feeling" said Pearson.
“You see little miracles along the way even though it's a tough treatment and it just breaks your heart to see what your child is going through,” said Colleen Newlin, Kylie’s mom.
She added, “her smile becomes brighter when she sees GG. It really is what she deserves after what she has gone through.
"GG, she just helps me through the way,” said Kylie Newlin.
