Wishes make life better for kids with life-threatening medical conditions. This simple, but powerful belief inspired the founding of Make-A-Wish® and drives everything we do.
Chris, 7, was diagnosed with leukemia. More than anything else, he wished to be a police officer. Caring people in his community granted his wish ... and set in motion a phenomenon that would create an unprecedented kind of charity.
There are four steps to granting a wish. Each step builds on the next and creates amazing experiences that delight wish kids and their families.
Make-A-Wish® is one united family, but also a collection of independently chartered nonprofits committed to a shared vision and mission.
Make-A-Wish serves a unique, and vital, role in helping strengthen and empower children battling life-threatening medical conditions.
