Though small for her age, seven-year-old Emma makes up for her stature with her feisty personality. This positive attitude has served her well as she endures treatments and visits to the doctor for a rare and slow-growing brain tumor, something she will have to monitor for the rest of her life. Head to the link in our bio to watch how Emma's wish to go to a dude ranch acted as a turning point for her family, allowing them to focus on something outside Emma's medical treatments. And special thanks to the @ufc for hosting Emma for World Wish Day 2019 when she found out her wish was coming true! #SummerofWishes #TripsThatTransform #WishWednesday

Something as simple as riding in a car together was an experience Steven’s family hadn’t shared in nearly two years – until his wish came true. After being diagnosed with a life-threatening gastrointestinal disease at 10-years-old, Steven’s illness took a serious toll on the family. Finances were tight and after a car accident totaled the family car, they had no means of buying another. When Steven wished to road trip to the @Yankees spring training, @Avis arranged for a minivan rental for the family, restoring a sense of normalcy the family had been missing. “For the first time since Steven’s diagnosis, our entire family was in a car together,” Steven’s mom, Theresa said. “It was the first moment that life felt normal again. We sang songs and the kids even chose to eat in the car, instead of eating outside in the beautiful Florida weather.” When you book a rental car with Avis during the month of August at avis.com/wish, 10% goes back to @makeawishamerica to make even more wishes like Steven’s come true. 🚗 Learn more about #TripsThatTransform and travel partners like Avis that make life-changing wishes possible at link in bio. ⚾ @makeawishmetrony

Instead, she found her new calling working at Cure 4 The Kids where she can refer children with critical illnesses to Make-A-Wish.

When children are battling a critical illness, a normal childhood is taken away from them. A wish gives kids the opportunity to look outside their illness & restores a sense of childhood back to the child & normalcy back to the family. For Michael, his cancer diagnosis meant time away from family and being confined in a hospital while he bravely endured chemotherapy. A wish was exactly what he needed to give him hope again. Michael’s mom shared, “We are forever grateful to @makeawishhv for giving Michael something to dream about and look forward to while he was going through his tough treatments. After months of anticipation and excitement…this wish-trip gave Michael an opportunity to be a care-free kid again with no worries in the world and all of us an opportunity to reconnect as a family and just have lots of fun together!” Special thanks to @JetBlue , a proud travel partner, who helped make Michael’s wish come true by flying him to beautiful Turks & Caicos and for showing our wish kids that the sky’s the limit! Check out our Story to see more from Michael’s wish.

Janelle is described by friends and family as being a sweet girl who loves nothing more than animals, especially dolphins. Unfortunately, she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that has complicated her life and has stolen her carefree outlook. Whenever Janelle would be awaiting test results or treatment options, she'd watch her favorite movie Dolphin Tale. So when Make-A-Wish entered her life, Janelle knew exactly what she wanted her wish to be: to go to Hawaii to swim with dolphins⭐️💙 #WishWednesday #SummerOfWishes #TripsThatTransform

Diagnosed with a rare type of cancer, 8-year-old Mischa spent most of her childhood in and out of treatment and chemotherapy sessions. Mischa’s family provided strength during hard days, and she found hope in the thought of a wish from @makeawishsnv. Mischa wished to travel with her family to #Paris , #France , to see her beloved uncle and experience all the sights and sounds the city had to offer. After jetting off on a @united flight, her wish came true. Mischa’s family shared, “Seeing the joy in our daughter's eyes, the endless energy, and hearing the mesmerized ‘wows’ while she ran from shop to shop in the marketplace was priceless. You made Mischa's wish come true; you helped us remember to "live" again, and you brought us closer together as a family, after what seemed to be a battle that shattered all of our lives. We are forever thankful.” Learn more and donate your United MileagePlus® miles to @makeawishamerica at the link in bio. 🛬🇫🇷 #TripsThatTransform

Travel wishes provide families bonding time away from life’s daily responsibilities and the stressors that come with battling a critical illness. These wishes need you. With 75 percent of wishes requiring air travel, Make-A-Wish needs more than 2.8 billion airline miles and points to cover every travel wish for kids facing critical illness each year. Our hope is that all wish kids receive their wish, but we need your help! Visit wish.org/travel (link in bio) to make an individual cash donation, or to donate your points and miles from @americanair , @united , @southwestair , @jetblue , or @delta. ✈️ 🏖️ #TripsThatTransform @makeawishamerica
