About Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana

Make-A-Wish® creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We are on a quest to bring every eligible child's wish to life, because a wish is an integral part of a child's treatment journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. There are currently over 300 children in Kentucky who are awaiting their wish. For more details on how to get engaged with our chapter, please visit or follow us on social media @makeawishohkyin.
