About Our Organization
Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. We strive to grant the wishes of every eligible child. To be eligible, the child must be between the ages of 2.5 and 18, have a life-threatening medical condition, and must not have received a wish from another wish granting organization. At Make-A-Wish, we are committed to making the realities of our wish kidsí medical conditions disappear for a short while. We are determined to allow the family to forget, just for a time, the everyday challenges of facing a life-threatening medical condition. We have received so many letters from wish families telling us how the experience provided an emotional lift when they needed it most. We know that a wish on its own cannot save a life. What it can do is provide hope- hope that anything is possible.
