Since 1985, Make-A-Wish Australia has transformed the lives of children battling life-threatening medical conditions through the healing power of a wish.
Wishes give seriously ill children hope for the future, strength to face the challenges of their illness, and joy from their incredible wish experience. The whole wish journey is carefully designed to help build resilience within the child — enabling them to better cope with the fear and pain associated with their fight.
We’ve granted over 8,500 tailor-made wishes so far. With 2,000 children a year diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, our vision is to grant every eligible child’s wish.
