Our MissionMake-A-Wish® Suffolk County grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation was inspired in 1980 in Phoenix, Arizona by a 7 year old boy named Chris, who had Leukemia. The Make-A-Wish Foundation was created in his memory, enabling his legacy to live on in the more than 270,000 wishes that have been granted since, a wish every 35 minutes.
Since it's inception, the Suffolk Chapter has granted over 2,600 wishes to local children.
