– Chiara’s story –

As a mother myself, every wish story impacts me deeply.

When I organize a wish for a child living with a critical illness, I make sure I go above and beyond, because I know the strength and bravery of every wish family, and this stays with me forever. 

My name is Chiara and I work for Make-A-Wish International. My parents are world-renowned scientists from Italy, and their research has led to important breakthroughs in cancer treatment. So, the desire to help those affected by illnesses like cancer must be in my blood.

“I will never forget the smile of a wish child – eyes full of hope. Their courage and strength to keep going is inspirational, and we want to make sure they never lose hope.”

That is why I am always 100% dedicated to every wish I help to grant . We do all we can to create long-lasting memories and a unique wish experience for every wish child . But, we wouldn’t be able to do it without our dedicated volunteers and generous donors and supporters .

Now that I am a mother myself, I am unable to hear a wish child’s story without feeling a very personal connection. I feel so thankful everyday for my son’s health, but I know how quickly things can change.

It’s hard to explain in words how grateful I am to have the opportunity to be able to help grant wishes for our amazing wish children who are living with life-threatening illnesses . I take a great deal of pride in being able to support our wish families, giving them back joy and hope through the experience of a wish.

Thank you.
