Wishes are granted to children between the ages of 2 1/2 and not yet 18 who medically qualify for a wish. Children with a life-threatening illness are asked to take their mind off their illness and think positive. They are given the chance to dream. Make-A-Wish has a unique purpose. We listen to the quiet whispers and dreams of these special children and then we make their wishes come true. Fear and fatigue are pushed aside by excitement that bubbles out in giggles and shy smiles. We replace riding in wheelchairs with traveling in stretch limousines. And doctor’s visits give way to a command performance by their favorite characters. Whatever their minds can conceive and hearts can dream, we do our best to make reality.

Wishes usually fall into one of four categories: I wish to go, I wish to be, I wish to have, I wish meet. In an effort to alleviate any possible stress to the family, Make-A-Wish covers any expenses related to making the wish come true.
