MyWish4U.org was founded by Joseph Zevuloni and originated with a wish to give hope, strength and joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions and various pediatric cancers. When a child is diagnosed with cancer, it is a devastating reality, both mentally and physically for a child and the family to confront. MyWish4U.org steps in to give the children reasons not to give up and strength to push as hard as they can.
