Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
Make-A-Wish Central & Western North Carolina has granted more than 5,500 wishes since its inception in 1985. We seek to bring every eligible child's wish to life because a wish is an integral part of a child's treatment journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight their illness.
Our Local Impact
