On September 30, 2010, Windham Brannon Financial Group held a party for a very special child. His name is Julius, and he and his family recently returned from a vacation to Disney World that was sponsored by the firm through Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Georgia and Alabama.
Last year, Windham Brannon Financial Group made the charitable donation on behalf of our clients to celebrate the holiday season, and we were informed a few months ago that this amount would be enough to pay for his wish trip.
In order to fully appreciate the value of the gift, we decided to sponsor a wish party for Julius and his family, so we could hear all about his trip and see his photos. His favorite thing about his trip was the Peter Pan ride – he was very disappointed, however, that he was not allowed to ride his older brother Quincy’s favorite ride, Space Mountain, because he is not tall enough. During our party, we learned a lot about our new friend. For one thing, Julius is very fond of animals, he knows how to growl like a lion, and he wants to be a zookeeper when he grows up.
He is only four years old, but he has already made it through an ordeal most people could not even begin to understand. He is currently in remission from two forms of leukemia, and fortunately, he is doing great! Julius is truly an inspiration – he is enthusiastic about life, extremely sociable, and a joy to be around. We had a wonderful time getting to know Julius and his family, and we wanted to share a little bit about our experience with you.
