Approximately 300,000 children each year are diagnosed with cancer

Cancer is the most common condition affecting our Wish Children

A wish begins with hope, you can help to grant a wish for a child with cancer, today

Nitzan’s amazing wish…

Nitzan’s wish was to ‘fly in a hot air balloon’ with her family – what an amazing wish!

They left early in the morning, and took off at sunrise. Nitzan felt like she was in some kind of a dream, and was pleasantly surprised with how gentle the floating sensation of being in the balloon was! 

Nitzan and her family had the best time on her wish day, and the ride was so serene and peaceful! Make-A-Wish Israel made a sign on the hot air balloon that read, ‘Don’t stop dreaming’.

For a child fighting cancer, hope is essential. This Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we need you to help us make every wish come true, just like Nitzan’s.

Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Started in the US in September 1992, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month highlights the impact of cancer on children and their family and acknowledges the fight against cancer and cancer-related illnesses so many children face. The Golden Ribbon is it’s symbol.

The encouraging news is that, with the development of economy and medical conditions in some areas, survival rates of children with cancer keep on rising. However, the improvement is lagging in some less-developed countries.

Every year in September, at Make-A-Wish, we join this movement of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, hoping to bring more strength and courage to every child fighting cancer. And we can only achieve this with your support.
