NBC 7 Investigates looks into the non-profit WishWarriors, a San Diego cancer charity that promised families with children battling cancer financial support for allowing the charity to highlight them in advertisements. Months after these promises were made and after the families participated in time-consuming fundraisers, none of the families had received a penny. As we looked into WishWarriors and the people behind the group, the story began to unfold with unexpected twists and turns including officials making an arrest and community members rallying behind the children this organization advertised as supporting.
