Mission Statement

We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

Description

Make-A-Wish Rio Grande Valley was founded in 1998 and serves the 6 southernmost counties in the state of Texas. We have granted more than 775 wishes. All money raised in the Valley, stays to help the children of the Valley.
For a child with a life-threatening medical condition, a wish is an opportunity to dream. It is a time for children to go far from the reality of doctors and hospital ... s that they face everyday, to a world of fantasy and imagination. A wish is a day, or a week without a thought of being sick and a time to just remember being a kid. The smiles, laughter, and tears of joy are symptoms that these children and families would not trade in for the world. The power of a wish cannot be measured, but we do know that many times a wish provides a reason to continue fighting.
