When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope. This can have a real and tangible impact on a child's health. In fact, research shows that wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give children with critical illnesses a higher chance of survival. Doctors and social workers use wishes as a part of their treatment plan because wishes are that important.
Wishes are more than just a nice thing
A wish experience can be a game-changer for a child with a critical illness.
This one belief guides them in everything they do at Make-A-Wish®. It inspires to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve. It compels to be creative in exceeding the expectations of every wish kid. It drives to make our donated resources go as far as possible.
Most of all, it's the founding principle of their vision to grant the wish of every eligible child.
Wishes are more than just a nice thing. And they are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. Wishes impact everyone involved - wish kids, volunteers, donors, sponsors, medical professionals and communities. The impact varies. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments. Parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic. And still others might realize all they have to offer the world through volunteer work or philanthropy.
Whatever the odds, whatever the obstacles ... wishes find a way to make the world better.
