At Make-A-Wish® we are motivated to do everything we can to bring joy into the lives of children living with life-threatening medical conditions. We are thrilled when families send us photos from their wish trips; of their children enjoying their new room makeovers; or of them playing with toys from their shopping sprees. Seeing children smile again after their lives have been disrupted by critical illnesses is truly priceless.
