I saw and loved the movie and knew there was a lot more in Frank's life that wasn't included. When I realized the movie was based on the book, it was a must read for me. Received the book, opened the package and proceeded to spend the next 3 hrs reading it. I finished the next day and was inspired. Through all kinds of hardship, Frank's ability to find the good and the positive in just about everything was heartening. I finished the book with my spirits lifted.

A beautiful story about the life of the man who started the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Coming from humble beginnings, Frank Shankwitz gave much through his actions and commitments to the happiness of terminally ill children. The heart of this former police officer and Air Force veteran is overflowing with love. He recently passed away. I wish I got to shake his hand; the hand of an angel.
5.0 out of 5 starsA true American hero to terminally ill children.

How a man helped make a Wish come true and how everyone can be a hero ! Thank you Frank Shankwitz for making Chris’s wish come true. Thank you Juan for instilling in a young Frank that kindness is rewarding. Thank you to the Make a Wish chapter Georgia, for granting my granddaughter Kamryn’s Wish. Our family is forever grateful to Frank Shankwitz. Inspiring, heart tugging, a must read ! Can not wait for the movie.
