About the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Connecticut, Inc.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Connecticut grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Wish-come-true experiences can do wonders by providing a much-needed break from lengthy hospital stays and medical treatments. They give back to a child what a serious medical condition can take away—the chance to simply enjoy being a kid, choose something that will inspire happiness, and spend precious time with their families. The Connecticut chapter has made over 2,200 wishes come true since its inception in 1986.
