For children battling a critical illness, a wish is more than just a dream. It can be a turning point in their lives. A wish-come-true can give them the emotional and physical strength to keep going – to fight harder against their illness. And, it can help families focus on the possibilities of tomorrow and not on the challenges of today.
This is why wishes need you. Throughout April and in honor of World Wish Day on April 29, help bring hope and strength to more children battling critical illnesses. Your gift today will show the world: Where there’s a wish, there’s a way.
