Mile High Magazine 05/24/2020 Make-A-Wish Colorado

Guest:  Scott Dishong, President and CEO, Make-A-Wish Colorado and Deacon Peter, wish alum Make-A-Wish Colorado started in 1983, they’ve brought joy and hope to thousands of kids across our state by granting the wishes of children who are battling critical illnesses. Following the outbreak of COVID-19, approximately 60 wishes have been put on hold and more wishes are coming in daily.  Make-A-Wish Colorado has done over 5,500 wishes.  There are five type of wishes; to have, to go, to be, to meet, to give.  Deacon shared his story from when he was diagnosed with Lymphoma at 16 and his story from getting his wish.  His wish was to go to Rome and meet the Pope.  COVID-19 has not changed their mission.  Right now they have had to put travel and concert wishes on hold.  They are still working on ways to provide other wishes such as building a game room to giving a kid a camper.  https://colorado.wish.org/
