The Make-A-Wish Foundation® grants wishes to children between the ages of 2½ and 18 years who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition.
Because hospital visits are not fun, because medication is yucky, because being sick sometimes hurts, the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Minnesota wants to be there for each child, no matter the situation, to help brighten a difficult journey with moments of joy, surprise and laughter that create special life-long memories. Life is not measured in years, but in memories!
Having witnessed the enrichment a wish provides over and over again, we strive to make every wish exceed the child’s wildest dreams!
It only takes hearing a few experiences from doctors, social workers, parents, and grandparents who tell us stories about how the positive influence of the wish-granting experience brings hope, strength and joy to these young patients and takes them into a healthy, peaceful setting where they can restore and recuperate. These children deserve the hope and joy that only a wish can provide.
