Wish comes true for 20-year-old who cares for younger siblings

August 21, 2012 (CHICAGO)

While her mother is recovering in a rehab center from a brain injury, Watkins is getting help from strangers who wanted to grant her wish -- to provide food for her family. The amount of the donation is a secret.

The Wish Upon A Hero Foundation is an online community that matches those who need with those who can give. The organization supports a broad range of wishes for newborns to senior citizens.

Watkins was burned at the age of 8 when a pan of grease fell on her.
