I don't know how it works in other countries but in the UK there are several wish granting charities and between them no child to my knowledge goes
without a wish. Because my daughter was diagnosed with a life threatening illness I have come into contact with many families over the years who have
approached one of these charities and I don't know of a single family who was left disappointed!
My daughter was taken to Lapland with "When You Wish Upon A Star" childrens wish granting charity when she was 8 and still receiving chemotherapy.
They take planes out there every year in December. This doesn't even count as a "personal wish" and children are still eligible to make their own wish
My daughter had her wish granted by a charity called "Starlight" and they went way above and beyond any expectations she had!
Although this little boys wish may be more extravagant than most probably hope for I don't see this as negative in anyway. Lots of the wishes that
children make rely on things more than money and funding can buy....the help and goodwill of the people! It seems that San Francisco got this right.
It should be a wake up call to raise the bar for these children because they most certainly deserve it! Hopefully the publicity off this may inspire
more people to donate or get involved.
I applaud the people of San Francisco and more importantly I applaud this little boy.He is a hero in more ways than he realises, a fact I'm sure his
family are very aware of.
