Make A Wish Foundation

How we grant wishes

For a child living with a life-threatening medical condition, a wish brings hope, strength and joy. The entire wish process – from the anticipation, to the wish itself, and the memories that it creates – provides a welcome diversion for children undergoing difficult medical treatments. A wish can also be a positive experience for families in challenging times.

The magic begins when a child utters the words “I wish…”

Types of wishes

A child may wish for anything, and we’ll do our utmost to make it happen.
