Hugs and Wishes: Lasting Wish Memories Spark an Instant Connection

Chelsey and Matt
Love. It is at the core of our mission to create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. A wish pulls on the heartstrings of everyone involved. It has the power to transform the lives of wish kids, their families, volunteers, donors, doctors and anyone else involved. For the second consecutive year, we bring you our #HugsAndWishes series, a collection of love stories that start with, or circle back to, Make-A-Wish. Follow the series on Facebook and Twitter – and remember to #SpreadLove every day.
