Caden, safari, Make-A-Wish Central New York

Wish Kids Through the Ages Part 1

Jaxston, Make-A-Wish Hawaii
How do I feel less lonely, more connected and more in charge of my own future? These are common worries that wish kids express, regardless of age. And I’d venture a guess that you have asked yourself at least one of these questions in your own life, even if you’ve never been seriously ill.

Medical Technology Helps Keep Traveling Wish Kids Safe

When Make-A-Wish patients travel to their wish destinations, they rarely bring their medical images with them, putting them at increased risk, exposing them to additional radiation, and making it harder for physicians to treat them. As a pediatric critical care physician working at an Orlando trauma hospital, I treat many wish children. We’re now using cloud-based medical image sharing to help families and their physicians coordinate safe trips and perpetuate the mission of Make-A-Wish.

6 Ways to Stand Out as an Intern

Make-A-Wish Oklahoma, interns
When I started my copywriting internship at Make-A-Wish, I had no clue what I was getting myself into. I had never interned outside of school before, completed self-paced work projects, or been in a place with more than 20 employees. I felt utterly unfit for the office environment, even though I’d be doing something I loved.
