Corey Rose's Wishes and Heroes benefit concert is Saturday

Proceeds from the 12th annual concert will benefit Make-A-Wish Colorado and the Colorado Professional Firefighters Foundation.

LITTLETON, Colo. — The Wishes and Heroes Benefit Concert is back.

9NEWS Mornings anchor Corey Rose started the concert fundraiser in 2011 to honor the memory of her father, Gary, who passed away from work-related leukemia. Gary was a PJ in the Air Force and a firefighter in Los Angeles for 32 years.

Over the years, Wishes and Heroes has been part of granting dozens of wishes and has helped many firefighters and family members when tragedy strikes.

To date, Wishes and Heroes has raised more than $250,000, with half going to Make a Wish Colorado to grant wishes for kids fighting leukemia or lymphoma, and half going to the Colorado Professional Firefighters Foundation.

This year's wish kid is Rose, a 6-year-old who has been battling leukemia for the past two years. Her wish is to take a trip to Disneyland to meet Minnie Mouse.
