Make-A-Wish is dedicated to granting life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Research has shown that children who have had wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight their illness. Since its founding in 1985, Make-A-Wish Illinois has granted more than 17,000 wishes. This year alone, they will grant more than 700 wishes to children across the state, continuing their mission to share the power of a wish®.
