About Make-A-Wish Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia

Make-A-Wish has one purpose, to grant transformational wishes to children who face illness and adversity in their everyday lives. To provide a brief reprieve from their medical challenges and allow them to be a normal child once again. Every phase of the wish journey has proven physical and emotional benefits for a child facing a critical illness. Wish kids are energized by a wish. They can anticipate, describe, imagine, plan, and eventually rejoice in its fruition. In granting a child's wish, Make-A-Wish provides children and their families with a chance to forget about the pain and fear caused by an illness, and instead focus on the joy of having dreams come true. A wish is an experience that transforms lives - not just for our wish kids, but for donors, volunteers and the community - restoring optimism and strength when it's needed the most.
