Dr. Audrey “Dree” Stryker is clearly the impetus behind the creation of the IWISH Foundation. Dree began her mission years ago, assisting others in their pursuit of achieving sustainable advances in health care around the world. Based on these experiences, and with support from her family and friends, IWISH was created, and now we ask that you assist Dr. Stryker and IWISH in our mission.
