Starlight Wish Granting

One wish – endless possibilities…

A wish come trueAt a time when it may feel like there is little to look forward to, Starlight is there to grant a seriously or terminally ill child their greatest wish, restoring the magic and fun of childhood and creating happy memories for the whole family to share and cherish, whatever the future holds.

Each wish is different because young minds are so imaginative and creative. Search the wishes and dreams, and you’ll see… whatever the wish, Starlight makes it happen!

Happily some 70% of Starlight children go on to get better and often doctors and parents say that the excitement and anticipation of the child’s wish was the turning point for their recovery.

You can put a child forward for a magical wish simply by completing our wish referral form.
