Alice’s wish motivated her to give back


“ I've learned to use my limitations as motivation to push myself. ”

  • Alice , wish granted 2018

    • neuromuscular disorder
    • I wish to go to Hawaii

At 17, Make-A-Wish recipient Alice looks back on her life and remembers the times when she could walk long distances without having to use a wheelchair. As her neuromuscular condition progresses, her mobility decreases. But you helped her learn to use her limitations as an opportunity when you helped grant her wish to visit Hawaii. That time on the beaches of Hawaii was so much more than a trip—Alice found inspiration for her future.

Research shows, and physicians agree, a wish can help improve a child’s quality of life and produce better health outcomes. These life-changing wishes replace fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope—helping children battling critical illnesses see the impossible as possible.
