If there's anyone who can understand a child's medical journey, it's Unit Clerk Sahar Bazrafshan. After being diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma, Sahar didn't want to return to her previous job when she finished her treatment. Instead, she found her new calling working at Cure 4 The Kids where she can refer children with critical illnesses to Make-A-Wish.

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! Check out our Story to see more from Michael’s wish.

Janelle is described by friends and family as being a sweet girl who loves nothing more than animals, especially dolphins. Unfortunately, she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that has complicated her life and has stolen her carefree outlook. Whenever Janelle would be awaiting test results or treatment options, she'd watch her favorite movie Dolphin Tale. 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

Travel wishes provide families bonding time away from life’s daily responsibilities and the stressors that come with battling a critical illness. These wishes need you. With 75 percent of wishes requiring air travel, Make-A-Wish needs more than 2.8 billion airline miles and points to cover every travel wish for kids facing critical illness each year. Our hope is that all wish kids receive their wish, but we need your help! Visit wish.org/travel (link in bio) to make an individual cash donation, or to donate your points and miles from @americanair , @united , @southwestair , @jetblue , or @delta. ✈️ 🏖️ #TripsThatTransform @makeawishamerica

5-year-old Amora loves mermaids like many girls her age, but unlike her peers, Amora has spent countless days of her young life in a hospital battling leukemia. When she needed to distract herself from chemotherapy or painful treatments, she would think about mermaids and how badly she wanted to meet a real one. When it came time for her to share her one true wish with volunteers from @makeawishga , Amora wasted no time telling them she wished to meet a mermaid in #Hawaii ! 🧜 Not long after, Amora was on board an @americanair flight to the beautiful island of Hawaii where her very own #mermaid was waiting for her! 🏝️ Together the two enjoyed swimming and exchanging all the secrets about mermaids & life under the sea. 🐚 Thanks to travel partners like American Airlines for helping to grant life-changing wishes for kids like Amora.

Aggressive chemotherapy treatments, doctor's visits, and hospital stays were all too familiar for nine-year-old Mikey. This tough kiddo spent second grade fighting leukemia instead of enjoying field trips and the joys of childhood. What got him through the long, painful days in the hospital was looking forward to his trip to Hawaii. When Mikey finally found out his wish was coming true, he couldn't believe it. For the first time in a long time, Mikey felt joyful and excited instead of fearful and sad! 💙 #SummerOfWishes

A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their critical illnesses. For many, the wish marks a turning point in the fight against their illnesses. Doctors, nurses and other health professionals say the wish experience works in conjunction with medicine to make their patients feel better emotionally and even physically. That is why wishes matter. That is why we grant wishes. #SummerOfWishes
