Hello all you Dreamers and hope your having a good Thursday! Today we want to highlight another outstanding organization Make a Wish. Founded in the 1980’s it has since gone on to fill thousands of wishes to children who have a life threatening illness.
We at Teen with a Dream encourage any kid who is going through cancer to go to their website and apply for a wish. We all have heard about Make a Wish, however you may be surprised to learn that you do not have to be a terminally ill patient to qualify for their wishes.
Teen with a Dream Founder found this out when he was going through treatment and went on a Make a Wish at age 14. It is a amazing experience that any child with cancer deserves. So if you’re a parent look into Make a Wish. If you’re a family friend that knows a child with cancer, let their family know; and if you are a patient have your parents help you with the application. You will need your doctor’s office help and can learn all the other things you need at http://wish.org/
