We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
A child facing a life-threatening or critical illness needs many things. A loving family. Excellent medical services. An extended community of supportive, loyal friends, teachers, and people who care.
They also need times of hope and laughter and fun. Time to be who they are…children. They are children who want to think about something other than their illness, who want to imagine a future with better days and dreams that come true. That’s where the Make-A-Wish Foundation® comes in.
In fulfilling wishes, the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Minnesota puts emphasis on the pure joy of a wish come true… it has been said that doctors provide the medicine and we provide the magic!
