Four-year-old rejected by Make-A-Wish because
he hasn’t gotten the jab
Now they’re coming for the children: The Make-A-Wish Foundation has rejected the wish of a four-year-old cancer patient to go to Disneyworld because the boy has not gotten his COVID shots.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation is refusing to grant 4-year-old cancer patient Rocco DiMaggio’s wish to go to Disneyworld — all because he is not vaccinated.
Rocco and his two-year-old brother are not yet even eligible for the jab.
“It was a punch in the gut,” Rocco’s mom told Newsmax about Make-A-Wish Foundation canceling the Disneyworld opportunity.
Not only do children regardless of individual medical conditions have to get the mRNA shots, according to Make-a-Wish, the group’s policy says all family members who receive air travel must be vaccinated. The mRNA shots have thus far failed to deliver as promised and there is no long-term safety data on vaccinating children. [emphasis mine]
The highlighted sentence illustrates the utter brainlessness of the Foundation’s policy. Even if the parents were gung-ho to get the shots, which they are not, it can’t be administered to him at this time because of FDA regulations.
That’s not all however. The stupidity of this is further illustrated by these additional facts:
Even if Rocco were old enough, his mother told Newsmax she is not sure she would give him the vaccine, since he’s already had COVID twice and thus has natural immunity. He is also immunocompromised.
Getting the COVID shots now could also seriously threaten Rocco’s already very fragile health.
“He had his left kidney removed because of a tumor that had grown,” she said. “He had five rounds of chemo, five cycles of antibodies, 14 rounds of radiation and seven vaccine shots. And he’s been smiling throughout his entire journey – even on his worst days.”
The seven vaccine shots he has received were not for COVID, but were specifically designed to target his particular cancer. Adding an experimental additional drug to this mix is very unwise. For Make-A-Wish to demand it indicates a level of idiocy at that organization that is practically inconceivable.
According to the article at the first link, one charity, Wigs & Wishes and the company Millenium Systems International, have stepped up to make Rocco’s wish come true. It seems that if you wish to give money to this kind of charity, your money will be better spent sending it to Wigs & Wishes than Make-A-Wish.
On Christmas Eve 1968 three Americans became the first humans to visit another world. What they did to celebrate was unexpected and profound, and will be remembered throughout all human history. Genesis: the Story of Apollo 8, Robert Zimmerman's classic history of humanity's first journey to another world, tells that story, and it is now available as both an ebook and an audiobook, both with a foreword by Valerie Anders and a new introduction by Robert Zimmerman.
The ebook is available everywhere for $5.99 (before discount) at amazon
, or direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit
. If you buy it from ebookit
you don't support the big tech companies and the author gets a bigger cut much sooner.
The audiobook is also available at all these vendors, and is also free with a 30-day trial membership to Audible.
"Not simply about one mission, [Genesis] is also the history of America's quest for the moon... Zimmerman has done a masterful job of tying disparate events together into a solid account of one of America's greatest human triumphs."--San Antonio Express-News
