December 17, 2011

ANITA — Just ask Chris Moore, because thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, kids facing battles similar to his should be careful what they wish for.

Mills’ question to the family was, when they would like to see Chris’ wish fulfilled.

“I didn’t realize that was how it worked,” Tammy said. “I thought it had to be approved by a board of some kind.”
