LITE-FM's Christmas Wish is back, thanks to our friends at Pioneer Federal Credit Union.

Robin wrote to us about her sister-in-law, Ilene, who has done an incredible job of raising her grandsons on her own while balancing a part-time job driving a bus for the Caldwell Transportation Company. The family got some unexpected news right before Thanksgiving. One of the twin boys was diagnosed with State 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

The family is facing the cancer battle with their heads up and are faithful in the treatment plan that Logan's on, but it means driving from Caldwell to Boise for chemo almost every single day. In order to make sure her grandson gets to treatment, Ilene's had to step away from work.

Since it's a part-time job, she has no paid leave and now there's no income coming into the home. Robin knew that anything we could do to make the holidays a little brighter for the family as they navigate this uncertain past would mean so much to Ilene. So we piled our elves in the Treasure Valley Subaru Delivery sleigh to make it happen!
