“I wish to fly in a hot air balloon”

Nitzan’s wish was to ‘fly in a hot air balloon’ with her family – what an amazing wish! They left early in the morning, and took off at sunrise. Nitzan felt like she was in some kind of a dream, and was pleasantly surprised with how gentle the floating sensation of being in the balloon was! 

Nitzan and her family had the best time on her wish day, and the ride was so serene and peaceful! Make-A-Wish Israel made a sign on the hot air balloon that read, ‘Don’t stop dreaming’.

For a child fighting cancer, hope is essential. This Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we need you to help us make every wish come true, just like Nitzan’s.

When a wish is granted, it does more than bring joy to the wish child.

For wish kids like Nitzan, a wish provides them with strength to battle through darkness, and uplift their families and the community around them.

A wish begins with hope. Hope begins with you.
