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.
Ashley Lucas, 17, describes her condition like a really bad cold that you have for life.
She was well into her teenaged years when she found out she had Cystic Fibrosis.
Her disease limits what she can do, but it didn't stop her from living her dream.
Check out Ashley's wish story by clicking "play" on the video box.
It costs an average of $7,000 to grant a wish like Ashley'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.
