One Wish Makes A Girls Lifelong Dream Come True

Briana during her wish trip to Paris.

“ This trip was…the best experience of my entire life. ”


- Briana

Thanks to your generous support of Make-A-Wish®, you are creating transformational wishes that we believe improve the odds for wish kids fighting critical illnesses.

With your help, 12-year-old Briana could live out her dream of going to Paris. Briana was honored to share her personal account of her wish experience with you, Bristol-Myers Squibb:

I want to start by saying this trip was really a wish come true … the best experience of my entire life. Seeing the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral and Louvre up close will stick with me forever, but also even the hotel staff were so nice and helps us every way they could.

Thank you for this unforgettable experience. There are no words to describe how amazing all of this was and how happy you have made me. Everything was taken care for us and for once, we didn’t have to worry about anything.

Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for all of you. I’m so glad there is an organization like Make-A-Wish that cares for kids like me who have suffered so much … [you] not only made my wish totally come true but also have given me hope and happiness again.

You inspire kids each and every day to believe in the impossible – inspiring wishes that transform the lives of kids battling critical illnesses and bring families back together again. Thank you for believing in the power of a wish.

“I see Make-A-Wish as part of the treatment plan for several reasons. It treats the family and allows them to focus on the important things in life when life and mindset are elsewhere. It allows them to focus on each other and their bond. And it creates genuine happiness and joy, which in turn helps with the challenges ahead and the victories.”
