Together, Make-A-Wish creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. The Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Missouri & Kansas is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was founded in Missouri in 1983. Make-A-Wish® Missouri & Kansas serves all counties in Missouri and Kansas. Since 1983, they have granted over 8,100 wishes to date, including over 419 this past year.
The inspiration for the Foundation was the dream of a seven-year-old Phoenix boy with leukemia named Chris Greicius, who wished to be a policeman. Little did Chris know, his wish would be the inspiration for the largest wish-granting organization in the world.
