What qualifies as a wish?
We only ask that the wish must truly be the patient’s wish. Our team is prepared to work quickly for any patient who needs a wish NOW when needed, between treatments, because the future can be uncertain. We also understand that some families don’t have the resources for things like suitcases to go on a trip, we’ve got them covered- fully coordinating and funding an entire experience
What can a patient wish for?
We never put our wishes into categories and no two wishes are ever alike! Our wish nominations committee will help create unique personalized wishes. Wishes are not one-size-fits-all.
