The wish is only the beginning...
Wishing Star Foundation grants wishes to children with terminal, life-threatening illnesses between the ages of 3 and 21, living in Washington and Northern Idaho. A child does not need to be terminal to qualify for a wish.
In 1983, Wishing Star was created to empower children and families to face their medical treatments and the loneliness associated with being sick. The Wishing Star Foundation’s mission is to provide wish kids with hope through uplifting and rejuvenating experiences refocusing on the joy of life and to provide lasting support and memories for wish families. Wishes provide laughter and respite from everyday challenges. Studies have shown that children who receive the promise of a wish participate better in their treatment plan and have a better outlook on life. We are here from you from the moment you join the Wishing Star family until long beyond your wish.
