Make-A-Wish Oregon serves children, ages 2 through 17, living in Oregon and Clark County, Washington and who are deemed eligible for a wish by their doctor because they suffer from a life-threatening medical condition. We have a strong commitment to never turn away an eligible child; unfortunately, the demand for wishes has outpaced our ability to grant them and we currently have an average of 100 kids awaiting the opportunity for their wish to come true.
Make-A-Wish Oregon strives to grant a wish to every eligible child in are area. Should our goal of raising $50,000 be achieved, it would greatly reduce the amount of time sick children currently wait for their wish to be granted.
Wishes are life-changing experiences for children with life-threatening medical conditions that often help children in their healing process - because when they feel better, they get better. Wishes also benefit the whole community that shares in an activity that derives hope from a common purpose and enriches lives through the wish process.
