We’re celebrating 35 years of life-changing wishes here in Wisconsin. In 1984, 11-year-old Catina, who was living with brain cancer, wished to meet Michael Jackson.
A small group of volunteers helped send Catina to New Jersey to meet Mr. Jackson. Catina was a fighter and lived until she was 41 years old and remained engaged with Make-A-Wish Wisconsin over the years, including participating in our 30th birthday celebrations.
Now 35 years later, nearly 7,000 wish kids and their families have experienced the life-changing impact of a wish come true. We invite you to join us in celebrating this momentous occasion.
