Make a Wish Complaint - Make a Wish is a wishless scam company
My 2 1/2 year old son was just rejected by Make a Wish. He has congenital heart disease and has endured 5 heart surgeries so far. He will require numerous open heart surgeries throughout his life. His last surgery did not go well, he went into cardiac arrest twice, once on the table and the second in recovery as I tried to comfort him, his heart rate went to 230 bpm as they brought the crash cart in and kicked us out of the room before they were able to stabilize him. He is now living without a pulmonary heart valve and will do so until he is old enough to find a suitable replacement. His favorite character is Mickey Mouse and I thought it would be nice to visit Disney World for his wish. He is the kindest and most caring 2 1/2 year old you will ever meet. His heart condition has made him far wiser than most adults. My son came as close to death as anyone can. I cry just recalling that day. I wanted to cry when I read the rejection letter from Make a Wish stating he doesn't fit their criteria. I'm sure he wouldn't had he died. Make a Wish's criteria is all about making money not fulfilling wishes for sick children. Don't give Make a Wish a dime. If you want to make a donation to make a difference in a sick child's life ride the elevator in your local children's hospital it won't take long to find an appreciative child and family.
