Description

Make-A-Wish Wisconsin granted its first wish to 11-year-old Catina, a girl with an inoperable brain tumor that left her easily tired and, at times, wheelchair-bound. But there was no sign of her illness during her wish trip to New Jersey to see her idol, Michael Jackson. In 1984, Jackson was the biggest star in the world and gaining access to the sold-out "Victory" tour that reunited him with the Jackson 5 was nearly impossible. Thanks to the efforts of a small group of dedicated Wisconsin volunteers, Catina's wish was granted. 30 years later, Make-A-Wish Wisconsin continues to spread hope, strength and joy to more than 300 children each year!
