We’re calling on you to join Eitan’s Wish Force!
Children who experience serious illness often feel isolated – and for Eitan, his battle with leukaemia meant lots of time in hospital while other kids were making friends.
He wishes to be a star and get all of Australia dancing with him – because he wants to make heaps of new friends and make everyone feel special.

Why is a wish so important?
Wishes are an essential complement to medical treatment, because while medicine treats the physical illness, Make-A-Wish brings hope and strength to really sick kids – ensuring they have the emotional resilience they need for their fight.
A wish isn’t one special day, or a nice-to-have experience. It’s a carefully planned, unique journey which delivers vital hope, strength and joy every step of the way.
Just looking forward to his wish has had an enormous impact on Eitan. His dance teacher shares: “Seeing Eitan go from serious, introverted and anxious into a shining star is why the work of Make-A-Wish is so important.”
Why we need to grow our Wish Force
Make-A-Wish makes over 500 wishes come true each year thanks to our amazing Wish Force (everyone who helps make cherished wishes possible!) – but to reach every child with a life-threatening illness, we need to quadruple that to 2,000 wishes.
Our wish applications have increased 30% over the past year, so to make sure every seriously ill child can experience a transformational wish journey we need you to join the Wish Force!
