How your money helps

For a child like 16-year-old Willow who's living with Aicardi syndrome - a condition that causes developmental delay and seizures - life is often filled with medical appointments, tests and long spells in hospital away from friends and family. It's a far cry from the carefree childhood she should be enjoying.

With your support, we can grant life-changing wishes that revive that childhood, bringing light and joy to dark times, and enabling seriously ill children and young people to be so more than a patient.

"Willow is the bravest, most resilient and sweethearted person. She is incredible, and music gets to her in a way that nothing else does. Seeing Willow happy has been the best thing today. I would like to thank Make-A-Wish wholeheartedly for making this happen. They make wishes come true and that’s phenomenal. Thank you to all the people who gave up their time and generosity."

Viv, Wish child, Willow's mum
