Description

"Those kids are my heroes and by actively deciding to help them continue their fight with a little more hope, you're one of my heroes, too."--Michael Jordan, from the Introduction

Poignant stories from this nation's best loved athletes include Michael Jordan, Michael Phelps, John Cena, Bethany Hamilton, Danica Patrick, Tony Hawk, the New England Patriots, and many more.

Imagine a seriously ill child who gets to make one wish . . . and that wish is to meet you. How would you measure up? Wish Granted shows how twenty-five of the most celebrated professional athletes of all time answered this question by sharing what it is like to transform the lives of Make-A-Wish kids. You will find out that these wishes are game changers, not just for the kids . . . for the athletes themselves. Some, like record-breaking gold medalist Michael Phelps, discover the tremendous impact wish kids have had on wish granters' perspectives, on their understanding of real strength, and on how we all want to live our lives.

Sports fans will be thrilled to get an insider's look into the deeply personal moments of their favorite superstars, and every reader will find inspiration in the amazing gift of human connection.
