Wish Day Volunteer

Make A Wish Foundation

About Make A Wish Foundation

To grant wishes to children between the ages of 3 and 17 who are battling a life threatening condition. The result is fantasy into reality. A wish can provide a positive, often once in a lifetime experience, for the child and its family. Focusing the child's attention away from the difficult routine of medical treatment and consultations, and the daily struggle against a life-threatening condition. The promise of a wish can have a remarkable effect on a sick child and has enormous impact on everyone close to them. A wish gives a child something to look forward to through their many months of treatment.
