About Us

When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope. This can have a real and tangible impact on a child's health. In fact, research shows that wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give children with critical illnesses a higher chance of survival. Doctors and social workers use wishes as a part of their treatment plan because wishes are that important.
