Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Our mission is our common starting point and ending point. It’s what unites us, what we strive and ultimately what we do – every single day. Research shows that children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength needed to fight a critical illness. This can help improve their quality of life and produce better health outcomes.


To grant the wish of every eligible child. We’re on a quest to bring every eligible child’s wish to life – a goal that is born from the idea that a wish is an integral part of a child’s treatment. Our vision is our roadmap. We are committed to ensuring that no child waits even one unnecessary day to experience the hope and joy that a wish brings.
