  • September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and all month long, we’re celebrating brave kids like Aiden and the impact that a wish can have on a child battling a critical illness. We’d also like to thank one of our friends, Bristol-Myers Squibb, for passionately supporting the Make-A-Wish America mission through charitable funding that helps us give wish kids the chance to experience life beyond illness through a wish come true.

Did You Know?

The Orange County and the Inland Empire chapter hopes to grant 347 wishes this year, but that is still less than half of the eligible wishes in the community. With additional funding, more wishes could be granted.
