From Sister to Staff

Amanda and family
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.

Common Make-A-Wish Misconceptions

Chad now and then
During my orientation at my first day at Make-A-Wish® Missouri, I was asked what I thought some common misconceptions of the foundation were. The first one I could think of, based on my childhood perception of the organization, was that it was only meant for kids combating cancer. Though a handful of the wish kids have and will battle some form of cancer, there is a long list of illnesses that qualify for wish eligibility. I quickly learned, and am still learning as an intern, that other misconceptions surround Make-A-Wish and its mission.
