Six families around Australia will sit in a doctor's office today and be told their child has a life-threatening medical condition. Their lives will change in an instant. It's unimaginable.
Yesterday another six families received this news, and tomorrow there will be six more.
By the end of the year, more than 2,000 Australian children and teenagers will have been told that they must spend their days in and out of scary hospitals, and miss out on the everyday pleasures of childhood.
At Make-A-Wish, we believe in the healing power of a wish. By putting the power back in the hands of these children and allowing them to regain some control, we can reignite their sense of hope and imagination, and give them strength to battle their illness.
Hope can be a rare commodity for children battling a life-threatening illness. Kids miss just being kids. Their hope starts to fade. We know a Make-A-Wish wish can bring their hope back- and so can you.
By joining Bake A Wish, you will be helping to give really sick kids a vital and transformative wish- wishes that are truly amazing. From seeing snow for the first time, to training with a favourite footy team, or seeing a unicorn fly; each wish is as unique as the imagination of the child who makes it. And, with your fundraising allowing us to bring these wishes life, you are helping to make the impossible possible for these really sick kids and teens.
