Waiting for hope

This year, we’ve all had a glimpse of what it feels like to wait for hope. We’ve had so many dreams deferred due to circumstances beyond our control. Yet, we're still waiting to feel hopeful again.

So are children with critical illnesses. For them, feelings of isolation and hopelessness are all too familiar. Hospital stays, doctor’s visits, and painful treatments are their “new normal.” Family plans are put on hold indefinitely. Uncertainty looms constantly.

But the moment we have something to look forward to, everything begins to change.

The hope of a wish is more than a temporary escape. It is a source of strength to keep fighting for better days. In these times, hope is essential for children with critical illnesses, and you can unlock its life-changing power today.

A wish starts with hope, and hope starts with you.

The impact of your support

Wishes transform the lives of sick kids, their families and communities. Research shows that wishes work to complement medical treatment, helping to calm, distract and empower sick kids at the time they need it most. When a wish is realised, a child discovers that despite their situation, anything is possible.
