In 1978, Linda Dozoretz lost her eldest daughter to bone cancer. After spending two and a half years fighting to keep, Susan alive, she died. Linda knew she must do something to battle this disease, and so she volunteered with a local organization to raise money for a cancer cure. For her efforts, she was awarded a trip to Disneyland. Linda chose to give that trip to “a little girl who would never grow up,” thus fulfilling the first of thousands of wishes to date. Since that time, she has continued to fulfill wishes for children and in 1985 formed Children’s Wish Foundation International Inc. Linda now serves as Children’s Wish Foundation International’s Executive Director and Fairy Godmother, overseeing all wishes.
