More than 150 life-threatening medical conditions can qualify a child for wish. Researchers who have studied the effects of granting wishes on children with cancer found significant improvements in hope, positive emotions, health-related quality of life and anxiety. Make-A-Wish Illinois strives to reach every eligible child with a life-changing wish experience through the support of generous donors and more than 1,700 volunteers across the state.
