Make-A-Wish Illinois

Every year, nearly 1,200 children in Illinois are newly diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. Make-A-Wish® believes that wishes are an important part of the overall care and treatment of these children. Each wish offers the opportunity for a joyous, life-changing experience.

Since 1985, Make-A-Wish Illinois has granted more than 15,000 wishes to children across the state with the support of 1,500 volunteers and numerous donors and other supporters.
