Carl is fighting acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), a fast-growing cancer of the white blood cells, and wished to be a downed World War II pilot. Since 1980, the MAW Foundation has changed the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt. Jerome S. Tayborn)
