children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their
illnesses, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the
entire family. With the help of generous donors and more than 800
Minnesota volunteers, Make-A-Wish Minnesota grants a wish somewhere in
the state every 27 hours. It has granted more than 4,500 wishes since
