5 year old Maggie May is a typical little girl. She enjoys reading, computer games, watching Hanna Montana and, of course, eating pizza! But what isn’t typical about Maggie May—she has Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH) which causes life-threatening tumors on her hips and spine. For two years she has endured countless medical procedures including biopsies, surgery and chemotherapy.
Maggie May is the reason that the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Missouri exists. Our mission is to put smiles on the faces of critically ill children who spend far too much time dealing with doctors and hospitals, with pain and loneliness, and not enough time just being kids.
