MORRIS – State Sen. Sue Rezin, R-Morris, is celebrating her 25th year as a wish granter with Make-A-Wish Illinois. 

Rezin became involved with the Make-A-Wish organization shortly after starting her family. With four young children, she thought it was a good opportunity to give back to the community, but also flexible enough to fit her busy schedule.

“Over the years, the wish families we’ve met have been amazing,” Rezin said in a press release. “It’s one of the biggest reasons I’ve stayed involved. These people are going through extraordinarily hard times, but they are still positive, smiling and they want to give back to others as well. It’s rewarding to be there for families at such a trying time and be able to put a smile on kids’ faces.”

As a wish granter with the organization, Rezin is paired with children who have life-threatening medical conditions, learns what their wish is, and then fulfills the wish to the best of her ability. 

She said she plans to continue her involvement with the organization and grant many more wishes to ill children in the community.
