Our Mission

Little Wishes grants the immediate and ongoing wishes of chronically and critically ill, hospitalized children easing their discomfort and bringing them moments of joy.
Little Wishes helps prevent children from losing their identity by tapping into their passions. Children facing difficult medical journeys can identify what makes them happy and wish for something that will fill their hearts and brighten their darkest days.
These “little” wishes become a bright light, providing a sense of control when so much is taken away with illness. Receiving wishes helps our patients replace anxiety, pain, and fear with hope, comfort, and joy.

Little Wishes Granted!

What Makes Little Wishes so Unique?

All little wishes are granted in the hospital and are delivered by each child’s medical team.

Patients Choose their own Wishes!

We help children tap into their passions and receive what truly brings them joy.

Patients Receive a Wish Every 2 Weeks!

This repetition of joy brings patients a much needed distraction.

Little Wishes celebrates all milestones that children may miss while in the hospital.

Delivering Impactful Moments of Joy

Our little wishes are granted in the hospital 24/7/365 and are delivered by each child’s own healthcare team.

“Every day I think about my wishes and they make my day so much better. When I found out I was diagnosed with lymphoma I was so sad, until I found out about Little Wishes. Every time I come back in the hospital after my two week breaks at home, the first thing I think about is writing down my three wishes on that paper."

Green quotation marks
“Little Wishes has added so much to our lives. Parker has been in and out of hospitals for the last 6 years fighting cancer. When we want him to get in the car to drive one way to the hospital (3 hours), he now gets excited because it is his “wish” day! Thanks for such an amazing gift... “quality of life” when we don’t know what his time will entail.”
– Parker's Mom
“Little Wishes is more than just receiving gifts. It is a way to know you're not alone. It shows there are people out there who care about you and wish you well. You have to be brave and strong to get through cancer and Little Wishes helps with that.”

“When you’re 10 minutes into an 8-hour chemo and your child is screaming to be done, there is literally nothing that turns that mood around more than a Little Wish. It’s absolute magic the way my little one delights at the sight of that white and green bag.”
– Thea’s Mom
