Make-A-Wish Texas Gulf Coast and Louisiana is one of 59 chapters across the United States and its territories. Since our inception in 1984, we have granted nearly 10,000 wishes from local children, and in fiscal year 2021, we have granted more than 400 wishes. By 2025, we will double the number of wishes granted annually. We seek to fulfill the wish of every eligible child, as a wish is an integral part of a child’s treatment journey. Research shows that children whose wishes are granted gain the physical and emotional strength they need to fight off a serious illness. This improves their quality of life and produces better health outcomes. A wish transforms the lives of children, their families, volunteers, supporters, health professionals and entire communities. Make-A-Wish is the world’s leading children’s wish-granting organization, serving children in every community in the United States and 50 countries around the world. Since 1980, nearly 500,000 wishes have been granted for children in the United States and its territories. To get involved, visit www.wish.org/texgulf.
