A wish has the power to transform the life of a child, a family and a community...forever.

Research shows children who have a wish granted build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness, giving them a higher quality of life and better health outcomes Yet 1 in 5 children in our community with a critical illness don't receive a wish. That means they're not getting everything they need to help them fight their illness.

Priceless wish experiences take investments of both money and time, so your gift is crucial for kids battling a critical illness. We hope you'll read some of the amazing and inspirational wish stories so you can see how a wish allows everyone involved to experience true happiness, giving children renewed energy and strength, bringing families closer together, and uniting communities.
