A wish isn't just a nice thing - a wish experience can be a game-changer for a child with a critical illness. This one belief guides us in everything we do at Make-A-Wish Southern Florida. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve. It compels us to be creative in
exceeding the expectations of every wish kid. It drives us to make our donated resources go as far as possible.
Most of all, it's the founding principle of our vision to grant the wish of every eligible child.
Wishes are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. They impact everyone involved - wish kids, volunteers, donors,
sponsors, medical professionals and communities.
Meredith is a kind-hearted 14-year-old who has battled a seizure disorder since she was six months old. In her life, she has had many experiences with EMTs helping her.
For her wish, she wanted to shadow Palm Beach Gardens Fire Rescue to
experience the ins and outs of what it takes to be an everyday hero.
