About Make-A-Wish® Connecticut
Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Connecticut grants the wishes of children
with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with
hope, strength and joy. Wish-come-true
experiences can do wonders by providing a much-needed break from lengthy
hospital stays and medical treatments.
They give back to a child what a serious
medical condition can take away—the chance to simply enjoy being a kid. Wish
Kids often choose something that will inspire happiness, and allow them to spend
precious time with their families.
The Connecticut chapter has made over 2,400 wishes come true since its inception in 1986. Learn more about Connecticut wishes at www.ct.wish.org, or join Make-A-Wish on Facebook (search Make-A-Wish Connecticut) and Twitter (@MakeAWishCT).
