Make-A-Wish UK creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
A wish gives a desperately ill child and their family time away from the daily struggles of living with a serious condition. Since 1986, Make-A-Wish has turned the wishes of more than 13,000 seriously ill children into magical realities – creating memories to treasure forever, whatever their future may hold. We want to reach more children and this is where you come in.
The children we support are often enduring things most of us could never imagine. They’re going through gruelling treatment, endless medical appointments and spending time in hospital away from their home, friends and family. A far cry from the childhood they should be enjoying. A wish provides seriously ill children with hope for the future, strength to cope and resilience to fight their condition. They’re given quality time away from the daily realities of living with their condition and have the chance to make magical memories they can treasure forever – whatever their future may hold.
Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
