Our wish kids sacrifice things everyday in an effort to combat their illnesses. Sometimes it’s their favourite food or drink, sometimes it’s activities they love but can no longer participate in. Wish kids give up playing with friends and family, and nights at home in their own bed.
Wishes are more than just a nice thing. And they are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. Wishes impact everyone involved - wish kids, volunteers, donors, sponsors, medical professionals and communities. The impact varies. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments. Parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic. And still others might realize all they have to offer the world through volunteer work or philanthropy.
