A wish come true helps children battle their life-threatening illness better. It gives them hope, strength and joy to strive for the future.
A wish is no longer a nice to have experience but a need to have experience. A wish helps wish children become more compliant with treatment programs and enhances their quality of life giving them more positive outcomes emotionally and physically.
Make-A-Wish® grants a wish, on average, every 38 minutes to a child with a life-threatening medical condition.
