In 1998, Matt Pattison of Eerie, Penn., was losing his battle with Hodgkin's lymphoma when the Make A Wish Foundation denied his request.Not only wasn't he 19 year old just over Make A Wish's age limit, but his dream** for an Alaskan moose hunt** put the international nonprofit in a tough spot with certain donors, among them animal rights and gun control activists.A year later, while Tina Pattison mourned her son, Make A Wish made its stance official** no hunting related wishes.

Such as great idea for a non profit org, to bad they let their donors political views get involved in the wishes of dying children. What happens if someone is anti mickey mouse? No Disney World for them either?? I have donated to make a wish,and this will not deter me from doing so in the future, but some of what they get may go to "hunt of a lifetime" this year.
