Twins Blake and Blaine share their wishes with each other

Blake and Blaine
Blake and Blaine are the closest of friends, and it just so happens that they are five-year-old identical twins. As with most sets of twins, these boys share everything: the good, and in their case, even the bad. These particular twins share a serious medical condition referred to as twin to twin transfusion syndrome which has resulted in several medical complications including a negative impact on their nervous systems. The boys are non-verbal, but they communicate with each other, and their family, through expression and sign language.

From Sister to Staff

The impact of a wish is a heavily implemented belief that we hold here at Make-A-Wish. The reason reflects the countless times we hear this from wish children after their life-changing experiences. It’s easy to focus on the wish kids because, well, it’s about them! However, there’s an overlooked truth surrounding the wish experience: the impact of a wish stretches far beyond the child. Though the wish is created by them and coordinated diligently for them, the wish experience ends up having a lasting impact on not just the wish kid, but all of those involved.
