This birthday, I'm wishing for something I know will come true. I'm paying my birthday wish forward by raising money to help grant wishes to local children with critical illnesses. And while presents are great, there is no better gift than helping a child overcome their illness by giving them the strengthy they need to fight.
Wishes inspire, have the power to change lives and improve the odds for wish kids fighting critical illnesses, and research proves it.* Wishes help kids look past their limitations, families overcome anxiety and entire communities experience joy.
Each year, more than 500 kids in central and south Texas are diagnosed with a critical illness. Make-A-Wish is on a quest to bring every eligible child's wish to life, because a wish is an integral part of a child's treatment journey.
With your help, we can transform lives and help Make-A-Wish reach their vision of granting a wish to each and every deserving child.
