Make-A-Wish is the legacy of Chris Greicius, a 7-year-old boy from Phoenix. Find out how his wish to be a police officer set in motion a phenomenon that would create an unprecedented kind of charity.
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.
Chris wished to become a police officer and his wish set in motion a phenomenon that would create an unprecedented kind of charity.
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.
Make-A-Wish® is one united family, but also a collection of independently chartered nonprofits committed to a shared vision and mission.
