Mission

Dreams and Wishes of Tennessee's mission is to grant wishes to individuals ages 5-21 that have relapsed from cancer.  We also grant wishes to young adults 18-21 that have a first time cancer diagnosis. We will grant a wish to any child that meets our eligibility criteria in any of the 95 counties in the state of Tennessee. Currently, there are only a handful of foundations across the world that offer a second wish to a child and we are the only foundation in Tennessee that provides a second wish to a child who has relapsed.
