Charlie:

One ELLE of a Galveston, TX Ocean Adventure


The ELLE Foundation is the only wish granting organization whose primary mission is to grant wishes for children with a recurrence of cancer. Granting final second wishes requires an extraordinary financial commitment, but our Lauren's passion inspires us every day, and our dedication to giving these deserving children a chance to forget, to laugh and to find their 

inner spirit is unwavering.


We are proud to say that we are an all volunteer run 501(c)(3) foundation and 93% of every dollar raised goes directly to granting wishes. Thanks to our generous sponsors and donors we have granted over 56 wishes just in the past 10 years.

Co-Vice President

Charlie, who lives in Iowa, wished to go in the ocean and spend time away from hospitals with his mom & dad.
Dana Michelle was the wish coordinator for Charlie's wish. It was a match made in heaven (I don't think it was a coincidence that this wish was to be granted over Lauren's Birthday and came in while Laurie was away). Dana put on her both her wish coordinator & Occupational Therapist hats and granted One ELLE of a Galveston Texas Ocean Adventure for Charlie.
One ELLE of a Thank you to Jolly Roger Beach Rentals for being a very special part of Charlie's Wish Team. Thanks to your wonderful beach/water chair Charlie's wish to enjoy the beach and ocean became a reality.
