Make-A-Wish® Missouri & Kansas

Make-A-Wish Missouri & Kansas creates life-changing wish experiences for children with critical illnesses. We believe a wish experience can be a game changer. This belief guides us & inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the children we serve. A wish brings healing beyond medicine. As doctors work to diagnose and treat critical illnesses, many include a wish as part of the child's medical treatment plan. They believe wishes, and the entire wish process, have a powerful and essential effect on the well-being and health outcomes of their patients. To learn more about the life-changing impact a wish has on a child battling a critical illness, please visit www.wish.org/mokan or follow Make-A-Wish Missouri & Kansas on social - @MakeAWishMOKAN.
