About Make-A-Wish Illinois
Since 1985, Make-A-Wish Illinois has granted more than 13,000 wishes to children across Illinois. Wishes are often part of the treatment process and can bring families back together after the challenges of dealing with a serious diagnosis. A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic,more willing and able to battle their life-threatening medical conditions. For many of them, it marks a turning point in their fight against their illnesses. For more information about Make-A-Wish Illinois, visit
