U.S. wish-granting organization Make-A-Wish America is on a cloud journey to digitally transform the wish-granting experience for children with critical illnesses.
Grant a Wish or Upgrade? Wishes can’t wait for children battling critical illnesses. For these kids, a wish can help them feel better and give them the hope and strength they need to fight harder against an illness.
This is why Make-A-Wish wants to grant the wish of every eligible child – to ensure they experience the impossible. Currently, Make-A-Wish only has the resources to be able to grant wishes to half of the 27,000 children diagnosed with a critical illness.
