ABOUT MAKE-A- WISH ALASKA AND WASHINGTON
Since 1986, Make-A- Wish Alaska and Washington has granted wishes to more than 6,400 local children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. From granting six wishes in our first year to now 332 this year, we have come a long way but our work is not over yet. With your help, we’re getting closer to reaching our vision to grant a wish to every eligible child by 2020, because we know that wishes matter. According to a 2011 study of wish impact, most health professionals surveyed believe a wish-come-true can influence the health of children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illnesses, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family. Every year, one in five seriously-ill children in Alaska and Washington does not receive a wish because they are not being referred to our program. That’s something we can all change.
