When George Miller’s daughter was diagnosed with a rare form of life-threatening cancer, all she wanted was a horse.
“That horse was more therapy for her than anything we could have done,” Miller told Superstation 910AM host Charles Spudd Spence this week. “A bad day of chemo or radiation was wiped out by a hug from Mack the horse.”
In May 2017, Miller retired from his career in the health care industry and joined the Rainbow Connection, the nonprofit that helped bring hope and joy back to his daughter.
“The mission of the Rainbow Connection is to make dreams come true for Michigan children with life-threatening illnesses,” Miller explained. “We have been around since 1985 making dreams come true.”
The Rainbow Connection goes beyond granting wishes. The nonprofit helps parents with food, gas and other expenses so they can focus on their child.
“We don’t want to just give a wish and abandon the family,” Miller said. “We want to make sure we stay with them.”
The Rainbow Connection relies on donations and volunteers to fulfill its mission. To donate or volunteer, visit www.RainbowConnection.org or call 248-601-9474.

“These kids are struggling, and they need some hope and some ability to feel joy,” Miller said.
Spudd said he is considering launching a fundraiser on Superstation 910AM to help the Rainbow Connection.
