The Make-A-Wish Foundation is an incredible non-profit organization that has been granting the wishes for children all over the world that are suffering from life threatening diseases.
This organization was inspired by a young child named Chris Greicius. Chris was diagnosed with Leukemia at age 7 and his dream was to be policeman. After being diagnosed with this terrible cancer, it seemed he would never get the opportunity to full-fill his dream. However, Chris’ mother would do whatever it took to make sure her son was able to make his dream come true. She had spoken to the Arizona Police Department about Chris’ situation and they were extremely willing to help. The Police Department planned a whole day for Chris to help lift his spirit. Chris would spend the entire day a police officer getting to ride in car, helicopter and he was even able to dress like one. It is truly such a incredible story, that shows the kindness and love that the Arizona Police Department had for the Greicius family.
