After an incredible wish reveal party, Ashley is headed to Maui next week for her wish trip. She and her family couldn't be more excited. "I can't even begin to articulate how powerful Ashley's wish has been for her, and how important it has been along her journey," says Ashley's mom. Have a great trip!

#TBT to 2015 when Tristan wished to go to the Volkswagen museum in Germany to see his favourite car.While there he cooked with the chef at the Ritz-Carlton, and saw so many cars he couldn't choose a favourite. "Every experience was new, exciting, and tailored to Tristan's interests," said Tristan's dad.

A wish gives kids the courage to imagine a world without illness, and creates an opportunity for hope.

We're celebrating 20 years of granting wishes! To mark the occasion, we're catching up with some of our past wish kids. In 2011, Rachelle wished to swim with sea turtles; today she's a high school grad hoping to earn her LPN! Visit our website to read her story!

The Honda Indy in Toronto wraps up today—the event benefits Make-A-Wish—and we're marking the occasion by throwing back to Kabrel's wish to be a race car driver. Kabrel's wish was granted in September 2017, and was our 1000th wish!
A wish like Heath’s isn’t just about a family party or a great snapshot. It’s about creating a turning point in a child’s medical fight. Wishes can show kids the strength they have and remind them of the hope they might have forgotten.

Before Mac and his family left on their trip to @waltdisneyworld , the stylish 5-year-old, living with cancer, prepared by packing all his "cool" clothes. This first Disney experience was a chance to celebrate the end of treatment and regroup as a family. "It was worry-free!"
