STORIES OF HOPE, STRENGTH AND JOY

When Make-A-Wish® grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition,
the experience forever changes the lives of everyone involved. Wish Kids and their families emerge happier, more confident and 
renewed to overcome every obstacle. Volunteers develop greater compassion, optimism and desire to help others. In 2016, Make-A-Wish 
granted more than 15,300 wishes. See how the wish experience transformed children, families and communities by exploring the wish stories below.
