  • “I have found my experience with Make-A-Wish very rewarding and it has filled the gap of what I felt was missing. To be a part of granting the one true wish to a child who has endured a medical condition more difficult and challenging than many of us will ever have or imagine, is a life fulfilling experience for you both.” - John, volunteer wish granter Learn more about our volunteer process at:
