“Our favorite parts of the experience were spending all of our time together, and just hanging out and having fun with each other. It was very special, and probably the best time of my life. I think it made our family much closer, and we all had an amazing time,” shared wish kid Lucas. Lucas was just a baby when he was diagnosed with congenital heart disease, so it’s hard for him to imagine a life without his illness. Now 14-years-old, he’s no stranger to surgeries, invasive treatments and doctor appointments. Through it all, he relies on the strength of his family, and they remain brave for one another. When Lucas learned he qualified for a wish from @makeawishsnv , he wanted to do something the whole family could enjoy together: he wished to go to #Alaska. 🏔️ Learn more about #TripsThatTransform and our generous travel partners that make these wishes possible at link in bio.   #ziplining #dogsledding 🚗: @avis

“My mom would never cry in front of me. But my aunts would tell me she would break down and cry once she left my room. Seeing her #parasailing and screaming ‘I feel free,’ made me so happy!” Wish kid Kimberly shared. “I like to call myself the chosen one. Not everyone goes through a sickness, but to be able to come out of it shows strength! [During my wish] I just felt like a normal kid. I felt relieved and relaxed. I had no worries in the world. The wish showed me the world and inspired me to continue to be positive!” 17-year-old Kimberly’s wish to go to Mo’orea was more than just a trip to a tropical paradise—it was part of the healing process for both her and her family.

#repost @makeawishcnfl ・・・ During difficult stem cell transplants and leukemia treatments, wish kid Jack’s love for animals kept his spirits high during this very difficult time. When he was told he was eligible for a wish from @wishmidatlantic , he knew he wanted to use this opportunity to explore his passion: marine life. A wish to go to the Maldives was the much-needed getaway that Jack and his family needed. During their time in the tropical country, located in the Indian Ocean, Jack and his family stayed in an over-water hut, courtesy of our friends at @hiltonhotels , dined at an underwater restaurant and even embarked on a private island excursion! “We learned to snorkel –and vowed to make it our new family hobby! One of the many, many highlights was seeing the sea turtles. Jack amazed the guides by identifying all the fish he saw and by the questions he asked,” Jack’s mom, Lesli, said.

"She had the most fun time of her life! It made her believe wishes like this do come true." -Wish mom Danna⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Battling a heart condition, 10-year-old Hawaii Island wish kid Jayla has spent much of her childhood unable to do the sports and activities her friends get to enjoy. But when her wish granters entered her life, it was an opportunity to say "yes," and to let her focus on being a kid instead of a patient. #WishGranted #TripsThatTransform 🌟

When children are battling a critical illness, a normal childhood is taken away from them. A wish gives kids the opportunity to look outside their illness & restores a sense of childhood back to the child & normalcy back to the family. For Michael, his cancer diagnosis meant time away from family and being confined in a hospital while he bravely endured chemotherapy. A wish was exactly what he needed to give him hope again. Michael’s mom shared, “We are forever grateful to @makeawishhv for giving Michael something to dream about and look forward to while he was going through his tough treatments. After months of anticipation and excitement…this wish-trip gave Michael an opportunity to be a care-free kid again with no worries in the world and all of us an opportunity to reconnect as a family and just have lots of fun together!” Special thanks to @JetBlue , a proud travel partner, who helped make Michael’s wish come true by flying him to beautiful Turks & Caicos and for showing our wish kids that the sky’s the limit!

So when Make-A-Wish entered her life, Janelle knew exactly what she wanted her wish to be: to go to Hawaii to swim with dolphins⭐️💙 #WishWednesday #SummerOfWishes #TripsThatTransform

Diagnosed with a rare type of cancer, 8-year-old Mischa spent most of her childhood in and out of treatment and chemotherapy sessions. Mischa’s family provided strength during hard days, and she found hope in the thought of a wish from @makeawishsnv. Mischa wished to travel with her family to #Paris , #France , to see her beloved uncle and experience all the sights and sounds the city had to offer. After jetting off on a @united flight, her wish came true. Mischa’s family shared, “Seeing the joy in our daughter's eyes, the endless energy, and hearing the mesmerized ‘wows’ while she ran from shop to shop in the marketplace was priceless. You made Mischa's wish come true; you helped us remember to "live" again, and you brought us closer together as a family, after what seemed to be a battle that shattered all of our lives. We are forever thankful.” Learn more and donate your United MileagePlus® miles to @makeawishamerica at the link in bio. 🛬🇫🇷 #TripsThatTransform

When wish kids are granted a wish, they get more than just a great experience for a day, two days, or a week. That experience improves the quality of life for them and their entire family. For wish kid Sofia from @wishillinois , her diagnosis of a heart condition affected her entire family, but once her wish to go to #Hawaii was granted, healing began to happen. For the first time in a long time, her siblings weren’t worrying about her, and instead, everyone was able to enjoy family time on the beach, laughing and playing together. Sofia’s mom shared, "The trip brought Sofia's spirits up. She truly enjoyed every minute of it. She got to get away from all her problems and just have fun."

A wish come true can mark a positive turning point in a child’s battle for health. For Enrique, his wish to go to Paris proved that his dreams could turn into reality.

Diagnosed with a rare type of cancer, 8-year-old Mischa spent most of her childhood in and out of treatment and chemotherapy sessions. Mischa’s family provided strength during hard days, and she found hope in the thought of a wish from @makeawishsnv. Mischa wished to travel with her family to #Paris , #France , to see her beloved uncle and experience all the sights and sounds the city had to offer. After jetting off on a @united flight, her wish came true. Mischa’s family shared, “Seeing the joy in our daughter's eyes, the endless energy, and hearing the mesmerized ‘wows’ while she ran from shop to shop in the marketplace was priceless. You made Mischa's wish come true; you helped us remember to "live" again, and you brought us closer together as a family, after what seemed to be a battle that shattered all of our lives.

"When you live day-to-day for almost three years in the childhood cancer bubble, you somehow adjust to a new normal. You don’t notice how pale, bald and skinny (or bloated, depending on the treatment de jeur) your child is. You wrap your son in Saran Wrap so he can float on the waves, you adapt to being isolated and don’t miss socializing — and you don’t realize the full extent of non-medical impacts that illness has on your child and your family. And even when the treatment is complete, you don’t just snap back to your old life. For our family, the wish represents the capstone to Jack’s journey: both an end and a new beginning." -Lesli Creedon, CEO of Make-A-Wish Mid Atlantic, Wish Mom A wish isn't just a trip or a specific moment in time. A wish is an experience that transforms lives and has a lasting impact on everyone involved.

When Nathan met his volunteer wish granters from @makeawishSNV , he had something to look forward to for the first time in a long time. Nathan loves Japanese culture, ultimately leading him to wish to go to #Japan. He was able to get up close and personal to some of his favorite cartoon characters and interact with the Japanese culture he’d long admired.

As a talented contortionist, 14-year-old Khulan is used to being upside down. But when she was diagnosed with a critical autoimmune disorder in 2013, she found her whole world had been tilted on its axis. Fortunately, her physician knew that wishes can be an integral part of treatment and referred Khulan to @makeawishSF. When she found out that her one true wish to go to #Paris would be coming true, she was able to stop dwelling so much on her illness and hair loss and focus her attention on something positive—preparing for a trip. “Her wish was important for her, especially during those difficult times,” says Khulan’s mom, Bayarjargal. “She had something to look forward to when she got better… Definitely there was a boost once the Make-A-Wish process started.” As Khulan’s family embarked on their trip, it was an opportunity for them to experience the Parisian wonders they’d dreamed of, while also giving the whole family a chance to reconnect and relax.

Simply riding in a car together was an experience Steven’s family hadn’t shared in nearly two years – until his wish came true. After being diagnosed with a life-threatening gastrointestinal disease at age 10, Steven’s illness took a serious toll on the family. Finances were tight and after a car accident totaled the family car, they had no means of buying another. When Steven wished to road trip to the @Yankees spring training, @Avis arranged for a minivan rental for the family, restoring a sense of normalcy the family had been missing. “For the first time since Steven’s diagnosis, our entire family was in a car together,” said Steven's mom, Theresa. “It was the first moment that life felt normal again. We sang songs and the kids even chose to eat in the car, instead of eating outside in the beautiful Florida weather.” When you book a rental car with Avis during the month of August, at avis.com/wish, 10% goes back to Make-A-Wish to make even more wishes like Steven’s come true. 🚗 Learn more about #TripsThatTransform and travel partners like Avis that make life-changing wishes possible at wish.org/travel. ⚾ #TripsThatTransform

Fortunately, her physician knew that wishes can be an integral part of treatment and referred Khulan to @makeawishSF. When she found out that her one true wish to go to #Paris would be coming true, she was able to stop dwelling so much on her illness and hair loss and focus her attention on something positive—preparing for a trip. “Her wish was important for her, especially during those difficult times,” says Khulan’s mom, Bayarjargal. “She had something to look forward to when she got better… Definitely there was a boost once the Make-A-Wish process started.” As Khulan’s family embarked on their trip, it was an opportunity for them to experience the Parisian wonders they’d dreamed of, while also giving the whole family a chance to reconnect and relax.

Something as simple as riding in a car together was an experience Steven’s family hadn’t shared in nearly two years – until his wish came true. After being diagnosed with a life-threatening gastrointestinal disease at 10-years-old, Steven’s illness took a serious toll on the family. Finances were tight and after a car accident totaled the family car, they had no means of buying another. When Steven wished to road trip to the @Yankees spring training, @Avis arranged for a minivan rental for the family, restoring a sense of normalcy the family had been missing. “For the first time since Steven’s diagnosis, our entire family was in a car together,” Steven’s mom, Theresa said. “It was the first moment that life felt normal again. We sang songs and the kids even chose to eat in the car, instead of eating outside in the beautiful Florida weather.” When you book a rental car with Avis during the month of August at avis.com/wish, 10% goes back to Make-A-Wish to make even more wishes like Steven’s come true. 🚗 Learn more about #TripsThatTransform and travel partners like Avis that make life-changing wishes possible at the link in our bio. ⚾ #MakeAWish #Yankees #NYC

”Autumn was glad to have a completely different change of scenery for her wish. She wanted to feel like a tourist but also feel relaxed and she loves that her wish included historical, educational and fun activities. We were provided with everything to take her mind off of many things for a beautiful week. Our favorite part was the Turtle Tour!” Autumn, 17, wished to go to #Hawaii 🍍🌴 - #beach #travelgram #summer #oahu #honolulu #visithawaii #gohawaii #visitoahu #surfing #ocean #tripsthattransform
