Make-A-Wish® is the legacy of Chris Greicius, a 7-year-old boy from Phoenix who had his one true wish granted in 1980. Over 30 years later, there are now thousands of wishes granted every year.
Chris, 7, was diagnosed with leukemia. More than anything else, he wished to be a police officer. Caring people in his community granted his wish ... and set in motion a phenomenon that would create an unprecedented kind of charity.
Make-A-Wish serves a unique, and vital, role in helping strengthen and empower children battling critical illnesses.
There are four steps to granting a wish. Each step builds on the next and creates amazing experiences that delight wish kids and their families.
