Meet 4-year-old Kajj.
He was diagnosed with Wilms’ tumor, a life-threatening tumor also described as a cancer of the kidneys.
Kajj wished he could be a “cop officer” for a day.
A very special request that Make-A-Wish and Blue Bunny ice cream recently granted. (See above photo.)
Kajj drove the above police vehicle, used handcuffs to catch a bad guy and took him to jail. He made his second arrest with the help of canine officer, Disco. Then Kajj joined an aerial patrol unit — which was an especially special moment for him. Kajj used to watch helicopters from his hospital room, but on this Make-A-Wish day he got to ride in one.
When his helicopter landed a cheering crowd greeted him. His guests celebrated Kajj’s action-packed day with a Blue Bunny ice cream social.
But the giving won’t stop there for Blue Bunny ice cream. In celebration of its 100th anniversary the company plans to grant 100 wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions over the next year. Wells Enterprises, the maker of Blue Bunny ice cream, partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to grant these wishes.
Make-A-Wish Foundation’s simple, heartfelt mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Since 1980, the world’s largest wish-granting organization has granted the wishes of more than 225,000 children in the United States.
Momaha recently spoke with David Williams, the Make-A-Wish president and chief executive officer, about how readers could contribute and why Blue Bunny’s “100 wishes” campaign is an amazing effort that should be applauded.
