The Impact of a Wish
There are few experiences more powerful than making a wish come true. Wishes are more than just a nice thing. They leave a real and lasting impact on kids, families and communities. In fact, 3 out of 4 parents say the wish experience marked the turning point in their children's fight against their illness. Your support is critical to giving Ohio children the opportunity to replace fear with confidence, and anxiety with hope.
