“There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful as the expectation of something tomorrow.” – Orison Swett Marden, inspirational author
What powerful words to describe HOPE – something so fleeting and intangible. It’s what we see on the face of a child who learns that his or her one true wish is about to come true. A child who, through the despair and uncertainty of a life-threatening medical diagnosis, still believes in the power of hope and the expectation of a better tomorrow. We call it the Magic of a Wish.
We often hear from medical professionals how they believe that HOPE can be a powerful healing source … a spark that helps pull us from the depths of despair. The light that shines despite the darkness. And in the craziness and despair of the pandemic and post-pandemic world … we all need a spark to remind us that there is still hope that tomorrow will be better.
A 501(c)3 organization founded in 1982, a Wish with Wings™ was Texas’ first wish-granting agency. As we celebrate more than 40 years in service, we have granted over 1,900 wishes to Texas children fighting life-threatening medical conditions.
