A Wish Is More Than Nice. It's Necessary.

For a child with a critical illness, a wish can provide happiness, hope and a sense that the impossible is possible.

I have the honor of being a social worker at a children’s hospital in Charlotte, N.C. I work with wish kids – or, as I like to call them, little heroes – every day. The kids I work with are often living with critical illnesses that they’ll endure their entire lives, such as Diamond Blackfan anemia, hemophilia and other blood disorders. There are no cures for these diseases.
