Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical
conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals

children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their
illness, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the
entire family. Headquartered in Phoenix, Make-A-Wish is one of the
world’s leading children’s charities, serving children in every
community in the United States and its territories. With the help of
generous donors and more than 28,000 volunteers, Make-A-Wish grants a
