Common Make-A-Wish Misconceptions

Chad now and then
During my orientation at my first day at Make-A-Wish® Missouri, I was asked what I thought some common misconceptions of the foundation were. The first one I could think of, based on my childhood perception of the organization, was that it was only meant for kids combating cancer. Though a handful of the wish kids have and will battle some form of cancer, there is a long list of illnesses that qualify for wish eligibility. I quickly learned, and am still learning as an intern, that other misconceptions surround Make-A-Wish and its mission.
