Wishes take muscle and give children the emotional, mental and physical strength to fight their illnesses. We appreciate the collective force of doctors, donors, volunteers and supporters who made this achievement possible. Every day, thousands of children are diagnosed with a critical illness. Every one of these children needs a wish to give them strength and help them heal. By continuing to lend your muscle to our mission, you can help make a world of difference for more children. With your help, we can grant the wish of every eligible child.
