The images above capture a few of the many Central Nebraska wish experiences granted in our area last year. These wishes can be anything from exploring Hawaii, becoming transformed into a prince or princess on a trip to Walt Disney World, swinging away on a play structure in the backyard, or going on a shopping spree. Each wish is personalized to honor that heartfelt wish of the child. For the families we serve, it's a joyous moment where fantasy and laughter take over in the midst of a much darker time in the child's life and in the life of the family. Take a moment to look at the photos of children experiencing their wish come true, and imagine being a child and having this question-with its endless possibilities-posed to you.

You could go anywhere.

You could have anything.

You could meet anyone.

You could be anything.

Wishes are more than a material 'gift' or 'trip'. They energize a child, a family, a team of volunteers, and an entire community. A child fighting a life-threatening medical condition gets to imagine, describe, plan, anticipate, and eventually rejoice in the fruition of his or her one, true, desire. A wish provides the family with a child-like escape from a very grown-up battle.
Your gifts will fund the wishes of children living in Central Nebraska fighting life-threatening medical conditions.
