KAMC's "Wish Wednesday" series shares the stories of "wish kids" right here on the South Plains and gives you an inside look into the great things the Make-A-Wish chapter of the Texas Plains South is doing for those kids with life-threatening illnesses.

It's been 12 years since Kristin Lewis' wish was granted and 14 years since her cancer diagnosis.

Her story is unique. In just a two month span in 1997, Kristin was diagnosed with cancer, started treatment and then given the good news, she was cancer-free.

Now 22-years-old, Kristin remembers her wish trip to Disney World as a time she got to be a kid again.

Check out Kristin's story by clicking "play" on the video box.

It costs an average of $7,000 to grant a wish like Kristin's wish.

If you'd like to donate, and remember all the money stays right here on the South Plains, contact Make-A-Wish at 785-9474 or visit www.facebook.com/wishlubbock.
