One Wish Heals Families

Wish kid Aaliyah during her wish to visit California theme parks.

This family time was healing for them.

Thanks to your generous support of Make-A-Wish®, you are providing children a life-changing experience away from a critical illness.

One where they can focus on fun and imagination and not medical treatments and hospitalizations. These wishes help kids build the strength they need to fight – and sometimes overcome – an illness. With your support, 5-year-old Aaliyah could celebrate being cancer-free at her favorite theme parks.

Aaliyah let her Make-A-Wish volunteers know that she wanted nothing more than to celebrate the end of her treatments with a trip to California. Together, with her family, they traveled to San Diego for a fun-filled adventure, exploring both Sea World and Legoland. They rode rides, met characters and even got to swim in the Pacific Ocean for the first time.

Now Aaliyah is building new, happy memories with her family. This time was healing for them. They are rebuilding their lives and looking toward the future –with new dreams and possibilities. Thank you, Bristol-Myers Squibb, for making the impossible possible for Aaliyah.

Make-A-Wish is an integrative therapy. It helps the child and the family, fostering some of the healing process. It empowers the child. That positivity and excitement definitely helps with the healing.
