FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Danyelle Musselman and husband, Razorbacks head basketball coach Eric Musselman, lead the “Wishes are Waiting” initiative by making the first major donation to grant wishes to children battling cancer in Northwest Arkansas .

Ms. Musselman, the initiative and Make-A-Wish Mid-South aim to raise an additional $1,000,000 over the next three years to fulfill the wishes of local children, a press release said.

“I’ve seen with my own eyes the positive impact Make-A-Wish has on children battling cancer, and I can’t sit still and do nothing. I want to do everything I can to make sure that no child gets their wish,” said Danyelle Musselman, member of the Make-A-Wish Regional Council.

According to the release, 56% of Wish children are battling cancer.

“Together, we have experienced time and again the amazing generosity of the people of Northwest Arkansas. While we know this is an ambitious vision, we are committed to making wishes come true at a time when they need hope more than ever before,” said Casey Tansey, CEO of Make-A-Wish Mid-South.
