I wish there were adequate words to share how magical Make-A-Wish really is.
While perhaps the adjectives are lacking, the stories are not.
Make-A-Wish grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. "Life-threatening" can include those that are malignant, progressive, or degenerative.
Cristel got her wish: I wish for a playset.
Aiden got his wish: I wish to go to the beach:
Bailey got her wish: I wish to go to Universal Studios and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter:
All children who qualify get their wishes.
99 percent of wish parents report the Wish Experience gave their children increased feelings of happiness.
89 percent of health care professionals surveyed say they believe that the Wish Experience can influence Wish Kids' physical health.
97 percent of Wish Families observe increases in their Wish Kids' emotional health.
74 percent of Wish Parents observed that the Wish marked a turning point in their children's response to treatment (in a positive way!).
Let that speak for itself.
