The Make-A-Wish Story

Since its inception in 1983, the Suffolk Chapter has granted over 2,600 wishes to local children. In the past year alone, we granted 100 wishes. Your continued support allowed us to grant the very special wishes of children such as: Jordan, age 6, who wished to go to Disney with his family; Benjamin, age 9, who wished to meet WWE Wrestlers; Caitlin, age 14, who wished to visit the set of Harry Potter in the U.K.; James, age 18, who wished to receive his own DJ equipment!

How it all started

Chris, 7, was diagnosed with leukemia. More than anything else, he wished to be a police officer. Caring people in his community granted his wish ... and set in motion a phenomenon that would create an unprecedented kind of charity.
