Wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give children with critical illnesses a higher chance of survival. When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope. Every eligible child needs a wish to count on! The Mid-Atlantic Chapter serves children in Maryland, the District of Columbia, and Northern Virginia. We are fueled and guided by our values – values that are represented in the inspired people we work with and the transformational work we do every day.
