dedicated to highlighting and rewarding kids faced with adversity who
love the western way of life.
Western Wishes has made countless dreams come true for kids who love the “western” way of life. Contrary to other organizations who accept only terminally ill children, Western Wishes has a been able to serve victims of severe spinal cord and head injuries as well as survivors of cancer, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, and heart afflictions. Many of them would have been turned away from traditional “wish” organizations because they only select terminal children under the age of 18. Western Wishes is different.
It has been our pleasure to see treasured dreams turned into lasting memories. Our recipients are predominantly rodeo and horse show competitors or ranch-raised children. The common thread we find with most Western Wish kids is that they posses a fierce competitive spirit which allows them to focus on their goals, rather than their affliction , giving them a positive outlook. As such, they are able to become “Ambassadors of Hope” to others who are about to enter the long road to recovery, or who are preparing to face the end of an already too-short life.
