As if the discrimination against those without the jab couldn’t get any worse, now the Make A Wish Foundation is apparently refusing to grant wishes to dying, unvaccinated children.
According to PopTopic, an unvaccinated 4-year-old from Staten Island wanted to travel to Disney World as his last wish. The Foundation refused to fulfill it, citing his unvaccinated status:
Rocco, the terminally ill 4-year-old boy from Staten Island NY, made a wish to go to Mickey’s House and meet Mickey Mouse in Disney World in Orlando, Florida, with his family but the Make-A-Wish Foundation decided to refuse the child because he was not vaccinated.
[…]Despite social media outrage, Make-A-Wish Foundation doubled down on their stance citing that the sick and dying child would be a danger to others.
The child’s friends were outraged, with one family friend taking to TikTok to say:
“I got a text — a message — from a friend of mine here on Staten Island; his 4-year-old kid — his ill 4-year-old kid — was refused by the Make-A-Wish Foundation for his wish because he’s not vaccinated … at 4 years old!
You should be ashamed of yourself! Let me tell you something Make-A-Wish Foundation, you’re going wish you never made this decision. Next week we’re going to do something for this kid.”
Disney World, the amusement park in Florida, does not require a vaccine for workers or for guests, so it is unclear why the foundation was so worried about Rocco’s vaccine status. Furthermore, vaccines are not even approved yet for children under 5.
Fortunately for Rocco, others stepped in when the Make a Wish Foundation would not.
PopTopic reports both that “Wigs & Wishes stepped up to the plate and promised to send the boy and his whole family first-class to Disney World in Orlando, FL” and that “Social media influencer ChrisFix, who has over 1.8M followers on TikTok and 8.5 subscribers on YouTube, offered to help make the kids dream come true. In addition, Scott LoBaido organised a fundraiser for the terminally ill 4-year-old child at Joyce’s Tavern in Staten Island.”
So, Rocco’s dream will come true, but not because of the Make A Wish Foundation, which is ostensibly the organization supposed to grant such wishes.
Perhaps, as with the Salvation Army, it’s time for conservatives to take a long look at the real goals of the organizations they donate to. Some, like the Salvation Army and Make a Wish Foundation, might be a good bit more committed to pushing certain regime policies than they are in helping people.
