The magic of the Wish Journey

Make-A-Wish Mexico strives to bring joy and happiness to children living with life-threatening illnesses. We believe that these children deserve to have special moments and experiences that allow them to forget about their challenges for a while. The goal is to grant the wishes of these children, giving them the opportunity to engage in activities they love and create lasting memories with their loved ones. We believe that by granting their wishes, we can provide these children with hope and strength to face their challenges and continue their brave journey.

Make-A-Wish Mexico: the steps of a Wish Journey


To help granting wishes for children living with critical illnesses, this is what Make-A-Wish Mexico stands for. The Wish Journey experience can have a positive impact on the mental health of children by strengthening their hope. This special experience can provide a sense of joy and positivity during a challenging time, helping to improve the child’s overall well-being.

To participate in the Wish Journey, a child can be referred by a healthcare professional, parent, or guardian. Once the eligibility of the child has been confirmed, our wish granters contact the family and meet with the child to discuss their most heartfelt wish. After this, we work with the necessary individuals and volunteers to make the wish a reality. This includes coordinating logistics and arranging any necessary resources to grant the child’s wish. The goal of Make-A-Wish Mexico is to create a memorable and meaningful experience for the child and their family, contributing to bringing hope, strength and joy during a difficult time.

Wish Journey: the criteria

To be eligible for the Make-A-Wish Mexico Wish Journey, the following criteria must be met:

  • The child has to aged 3-17 years old.
  • The child has a life-threatening medical condition, defined as any progressive, degenerative, or malignant condition that is life-threatening and requires medical intervention.
  • The child must be able to understand the concept of a wish and be able to participate in the wish process.

Medical eligibility for a wish is determined by a healthcare professional, who verifies the child’s medical condition and ensures that it meets the criteria set by Make-A-Wish. If a child is deemed eligible, they will be paired with a wish granter who will work with them and their family to identify their most heartfelt wish and develop an unforgettable experience.
