The Make-A-Wish Foundation has helped many people suffering from life-threatening illnesses. One such person is young Rafaello Carone, whose wish was to see a volcano erupt. The Foundation brought Rafaello and his whole family to Hawaii to fulfill that wish. Splashes of Hope, a non-profit organization of artists, gave the whole Foundation a wish of its own. They painted the Make-A-Wish offices with images of young boys and girls getting their wish of going to Disney and meeting celebrities. On average, the Foundation grants 125 wishes per year in Suffolk County alone.
