No one's pointing out make a wish is for kids and he says it was for his gf? We're sliding right past that?


Since there seems to be some confusion, you do not have to be terminal to be a make a wish kid, many severely ill children were make a wish kids that grew up. Childhood leukemia, organ transplant patients, severely chronically ill, "spend-whole-childhood-in-hospital" sick kind of kids.


"Most" is superfluous. "Strangest" already means "strangest", there is no need to add a "most" to it. It's like saying "a stupid Trump comment".


Well that was very cool!!


Her name is Alicia Weyer, at the time both she & the boyfriend were about 12 years old, she had terminal cancer, but was fortunate enough to survive it instead, here's the IMDb page for her:


Volunteer Wish Granter here. Make-A-Wish’s purpose is to give children and families hope and something to look forward to while enduring treatments. Very few children pass.


Crud, I see now that she has no hair.


I never knew that




Recently had a child who was in remission from Liverpool Cancer visit the Tower of London through Make a Wish with his family. He seemed to be having the best time when I saw him, and I'm so pleased he was getting the V.I.P treatment
