Ilena moved to the USA from Moscow, Russia 21 years ago and married the young man she loved dearly. They had two daughters and raised their family to be an example of love. In 2014, Ilena's husband Max passed away from heart failure. Since then, Ilena has struggled to make ends meet.
For Wish #17, we surprised Ilena and her daughters with a brand new air conditioner and tickets to Universal Studios for a family Vacation.
