Legal Hair and Day Spa would like Steubenville residents to know that together we can "Make Wishes Happen."
This holiday season, the salon and spa will be donating a dollar for every product, item, or gift card purchased to "Wishes Can Happen." Their goal is to raise $5000.
Wishes Can Happens works with Akron Children's Hospital to grant wishes to local children with life threatening illnesses.
Owner of Legal Hair and Day Spa, Leslie Icuss, got behind the organization after her grand daughter became ill two years ago. Her granddaughter was granted a trip to Disney World courtesy of Wishes Can Happen.
"I think the special thing about wishes can happen is whether the children have down syndrome or other things that are life threatening and that affects their life that they aren't terminal that they help with those things too," says Icuss.
Several of the wishes the organization are working on this year are granting a young girl who has lost weight due to her illness a shopping spree, purchasing exercise equipment to a boy with a tumor in his chest and renovating a boy's mustang.
Residents can get involved by donating money or buying a product. If you know anyone who would like to apply for a "wish" for a loved one with a life threatening illness can go to makewisheshappen.org or contact Leslie Icuss at 740-264-4667.
