Hundreds of Central and Western North Carolina children battle life-threatening medical conditions every year.  Not only must they endure painful medical tests, wheelchairs, chemotherapy and other treatments, but their illness robs them of their most precious possession – their childhood.

They have lost so much and paid such an enormous price.

All of this makes the magic we create all the more important.  Make-A-Wish® Central and Western North Carolina has a unique purpose.  We listen to the quiet whispers and dreams of these special children and then we make their wishes come true.  Our mission is to grant the wishes of local children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. 

Fear and fatigue are pushed aside by the excitement that bubbles out in giggles and shy smiles.  We replace riding in wheelchairs with traveling in stretch limousines.  And doctor’s visits give way to a command performance by Mickey Mouse.  Whatever their minds can conceive and their hearts can dream.

But we can’t make that kind of magic a reality without significant help. The Fund-A-Wish program provides an opportunity for corporations, individuals, groups, or clubs to “Share the Power of a Wish®” by funding a wish of child in our community.
