Even more wishes may come true for kids across Central Texas now that Make-A-Wish and iFLY are teaming up to raise money. The average cash cost of a wish is $7,500. Every 35 minutes Make-A-Wish grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life threatening medical condition in the United States.
As one Austin teen explains the timing of her wish couldn't have been better. Madeleine Tope, 13, was born with a broken heart. Her condition is called Ebstein's Anomoly. It's a rare heart defect. She's defied the odds but in 2014 she found out that heart surgery was not an option. That's when her wish to go to Disney World was granted. The trip was one that couldn't have come at a better time.
The family will consider a heart transplant but for now is focused on making memories.
