Make-A-Wish Ireland’s mission is to grant wishes to children age 3-17 living with a life-threatening medical condition to enhance the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

You can buy Wish Kindles at www.wishkindle.ie and give a gift that is not just for Christmas.

Your gift will help Make-A-Wish continue to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

As part of Make-A-Wish week on Today FM, The Last Word with Matt Cooper spoke to Yvonne O’Connor, mum to Harry who is a Make-A-Wish hopeful, and to Cathy Elliott from Make-A-Wish.
