Wish-granting organizations have provided wishes to families of children with serious illnesses for years, yet scant research has examined their benefits. This mixed-method investigation of 682 households explored the benefits of granted wishes to children who are ill, their siblings, and caregivers. MANOVAs indicated the type of wish and diagnosis significantly impacted the emotional and social benefits of the wish. Content analysis further supported wish benefits. Participants stated the wish provided something to look forward to, stress escape, and feelings of normalcy. Results support the utility of wish fulfillment in palliative care.
