Help children with life-threatening illnesses



I did not know the organization Make a Wish whose mission is to create hope and happiness for children with life-threatening illnesses around the world outside of the United States.

The creation of the Make-A-Wish Foundation was inspired in the U.S. in 1980 by the fulfillment of a wish of a 7-year-old boy with leukemia named Chris Greicius, who wished to be a policeman. His mother, several friends and a group of police officers, with the cooperation of the Arizona Department of Public Safety, granted his wish with a custom-made uniform, helmet, badge, and helicopter ride!

After he passed away two policemen realized how happy Chris was knowing his wish came true, and that the wish seemed to take some of his parent' pain away – replacing the anguish with smiles and laughter. They thought that if one boy's wish could be granted, maybe the same could be done for other children. At that moment, the idea of the Make-A-Wish Foundation was born.
