"I received my wish for a computer in the summer of 1991 while staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Pittsburgh. Choosing and anticipating my wish was a very positive experience during my two-month stay while having radiation therapy for a pituitary brain tumor.
I used my computer during high school and took it to Penn State my freshman year. It was an IBM 386 with a monitor and printer (that used paper with perforated edges and holes). I had the computer for many years.
Today, I have achieved my long-term goal of becoming a planetary scientist with NASA. I am the Planetary Global Reference Atmospheric Model (GRAM) Lead at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL. My first computer from Make-A-Wish has led to a career in planetary atmosphere modeling of Mars, Venus, Neptune and Titan, in which my use of computers plays a major role.
Since my wish was granted, I have volunteered with Make-A-Wish chapters in Pennsylvania, Colorado and Alabama as a wish granter. Make-A-Wish has become an important part of my life!"
- Hilary Justh, Planetary Scientist (Make-A-Wish Greater PA and WV)
