What is a wish?

A wish is a  once-in-a-lifetime experience for a child fighting a life-threatening condition. It’s a positive distraction from ongoing medical treatment and a focus for children living with serious illness whose future may be uncertain. At Make-A-Wish we ask children and young people to choose their favourite wishes; these are the categories our wishes fall into:

I wish to be...

  

I wish to have/own...

  

I wish to go/experience...

  

I wish to meet...
