Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) and Make-A-Wish share a deep commitment to providing emotional support for patients and their families. Thank you, BMS! Your gift to Make-A-Wish in 2018 does more than bring joy to children with cancer. You help us give them an edge in conquering their illnesses.
Bristol-Myers Squibb’s generous support of Make-A-Wish over the last two years has paved the way for wishes to come true for kids across the country battling childhood cancer.
For wish kid Jake, the company’s support has changed his life.
Earlier this year, Bristol-Myers Squibb made a $1.26 million donation to Make-A-Wish \ to help grant the wishes for kids battling childhood cancer. Over the past two years, Bristol-Myers Squibb has donated more than $2.5 million to Make-A-Wish America.
“Bristol-Myers Squibb’s generosity allows us to grant even more life-changing wishes to children with critical illnesses. Without them, some children might not experience the transformational power a wish has, which can give them the physical and emotional strength they need to fight their illness,” said Make-A-Wish Mid-South President and CEO Casey Tansey. “When our kids learn that their wish has been granted, it’s like an electric charge has sparked within them. Many times, their physicians and care providers see a noticeable change in their behavior and progress just knowing that their wish has been granted and that they’re about to embark on an unforgettable journey that they’ll remember forever.”
