The First Wish kid:
How it all started

Make-A-Wish traces its inspiration to Christopher James Greicius, an energetic 7-year-old boy who inspired others and wished to be a police officer. Chris was battling Stage 4 leukemia and in 1980, his community came together to make his wish come true. Little did Chris know that his wish would create a movement that would transform the lives of children around the world.
