Mission: Children's Wish Foundation International was founded in 1985 by Linda Dozoretz, who lost her eldest daughter to Ewing's Sarcoma, a vicious form of bone cancer. After dedicating herself to making other children like her daughter happy, Linda started the international Foundation that, to date, has fulfilled thousands of wishes for children.
Programs: Children's wishes - all expenses incurred to fulfill the wishes of seriously ill children and their families. This is a once in a lifetime experience for a child facing the most devastating circumstances, therefore care is taken to ensure that the quality of each wish far exceeds the expectations of the child.
family services - all expenses incurred to assist families and programs in order to promote a more positive environment for seriously ill children while they are receiving treatment. The hospital enrichment program provides educational and entertainment materials to hospitals and healthcare facilities around the world. The celebration of life programs bring magic to children throughout the year. Also, all expenses incurred to encourage the general public to participate in the foundation's mission.
education/public awareness - all expenses incurred to educate the general public about the needs and wishes of seriously ill children. This educates the public about ways they can support the seriously ill children in their community as well as helping children feel supported, loved and cared for.
