Adrian McKinney is only nine years old but he has big dreams of running a company.
As reported by WLWT5, the Make-a-Wish Foundation of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana granted his biggest wish: becoming the CEO.
He is battling sickle cell disease and has been continuously supported by the non-profit and his loving family.
This isn’t the only wish that came true.
In 2016, Adrian and his family were sent on all-expense paid trip to Hawaii.
There, he got to meet and speak with the CEO of Make-a-Wish Oklahoma, Doug Kelly.
Adrian revealed to Kelly that his wish was to be a CEO of Make-a-Wish so that he can help others.
“I’m so grateful because I am a Wish Kid…I am grateful for my wish and I want other kids to have wishes like mine,” Adrian said.
His mother, Torie McKinney, believes that there’s power in giving:
“I hope it sparks the love of people, the love of generosity, the love of giving back.”
“That’s usually the magic of Make-a-Wish,” added Kelly. “It delivers hope when they need it most.”
