Remember May - Make a Wish

Make-A-Wish in the UK

Make-A-Wish Foundation® UK is a charity with a single purpose – they grant magical wishes to children and young people aged 3-17 fighting life-threatening conditions.

Make-A-Wish has granted more than 7,900 magical wishes over more than 25 years. They know that their wishes transform lives! Currently there are over 20,000 children in the UK living with a life-threatening condition. At a human level, they believe few things can be more important, or more deserving, than giving a seriously ill child the chance to have their wish come true, with all the hope, expectation and happiness that brings. 

Back in the summer of 2010 Make-A-Wish UK granted the wish of five year old May who was fighting a rare cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma – she wished to be a princess for the day. Sadly May passed away just a couple of months after her wish, two years ago today, on 31st August 2010.

May’s family have been involved with Make-A-Wish ever since, raising as much money as they can to ensure that other families going through the same awful experience can have their wish. May’s Dad, Neil, has made this short video and would like as many people as possible to watch it and support Make-A-Wish:

It's only a minute or so long, so please watch the video if you have a moment to spare. And if you could share it with as many people as you can it would mean so much to Neil and his family.

If you are able to make a donation too, to help grant a wish to another child like May, you can ‘Remember May’ at
