Six families around Australia receive the devastating news that their child has a life-threatening medical condition.
Make-A-Wish are committed to bringing the healing power of a wish to each and every one of these children and their families.
That’s 2,000 families each year; four times the number they are currently able to reach.
Make-A-Wish wishes are vital, build resilience and are an essential complement to medical treatment.
They take really sick children and teenagers on a carefully designed, unique journey where their most cherished wish comes true,
giving them hope for the future, strength to face the challenges of their illness and joy from their incredible wish experience. And the impact is incredible.
The vast majority of wish families say they’ve seen improvement in their child’s emotional and physical health as a result of their wish journey.
Make-A-Wish has been granting life-changing wishes in Australia since 1985.
As they receive no government funding, they’re only able to continue making wishes come true thanks
to the wonderful support and generosity of local communities, individuals and business partners along with their incredible national network of volunteers.
