A wish is, after all, a journey. It begins with a startling and often devastating diagnosis for a child and their family. It moves to an open invitation to explore a child’s imagination and to dream big. Then it turns to hope, providing a light at the end of a tunnel, and strength when they need it most.
When a wish is granted, it is more than just a moment in time. It’s an escape from treatments and a harsh reality. It’s time with family spent bonding instead of shuffling between doctor’s appointments. It’s a moment of pure joy, of wildest dreams becoming reality.
But the journey does not end with the wish. The memories and power of a wish stay with you, long after it’s been granted. It changes lives.
Take a look at some of the lives you’ve helped change this year. Because of your support, these children and families experienced the wish journey – a journey that has only just begun.
