The Make-A-Wish Foundation began in 1980 with one little dying boy's dream of becoming a police officer. In the thirty plus years since, the volunteers of the foundation have granted the wishes of nearly 300,000 children. Once Upon A Wish invites readers into the uplifting stories of eight gravely ill children whose wishes were fulfilled and their parents. In several cases, the wishes became gifts paid forward: For example, one little girl made it her goal to raise $3 million for St. Jude's Hospital; another stricken child helped bring wheelchairs to disabled Cambodians. Heartwarming stories for anyone with a heart.
