Make-A-Wish Ireland has been creating life-changing wishes for children with serious illnesses since 1992. We believe that a wish has a lasting impact on the life of a wish child and their family. Therefore, our vision is that every child living with a life-threatening illness in Ireland is granted a wish as part of their treatment. For children battling a serious illness, a wish is more than a dream. It can be a turning point that can give them the emotional and physical strength to keep going.
Make-A-Wish caters to the needs of wish families in local communities around Ireland providing respite where the whole family is included in the wish. Some wishes are ‘rush wishes’ where the life expectancy of the child is under nine months. For these children, a wish cannot come soon enough.
“It isn’t always necessary to cure in order to heal.”
— James B. Fahner, MD, FAAP, Chair, Make-A-Wish Medical Advisory Council
