Make-A-Wish® North Texas
The sole purpose of the Make-A-Wish® North Texas is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions, in order to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. We want to provide children with the hope for better times, the strength for the tough times and the joy to experience the present.
Our goal is to be a unique part of the treatment process. With doctors providing the medicine, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation supplying the magic, we strive to create miracles in the lives of some very special children.
The Make-A-Wish North Texas is part of the nation’s largest and most well-established wish-granting organization, with chapters and volunteers throughout the U.S. and abroad. We draw on that strength, as well as our vast local network, to make a child’s dream a vivid and memorable reality. Every fulfilled wish represents a unique collaboration between wish families, medical professionals, volunteers and donors. The Make-A-Wish Foundation provides the structure, but it is the child’s request that determines what we will do.
