• Sal (MLD) loves his new wheelchair lift. Now, it's easy and safe for him to go in and out of his house.

The Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Wish Gift, formerly known as Hunter’s Wish Gift, helps families who face extreme financial stress attributed to the costs associated with caring for a child with Krabbe or another Leukodystrophy. Requests are granted on a case-by-case basis and are limited to meeting needs that will enable an affected family to provide the best possible care for their child. Many times families come to the Foundation for assistance with a unique need – travel expenses associated with treatment, a wheelchair lift to enable a family to safely travel with their child or assistance in purchasing a vehicle to accommodate their child’s equipment needs.  These are only a few examples of ways Wish Gifts have helped our families focus on what matters most – caring for their child!

Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation

In 2016, Hunter’s Wish Gift became the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Wish Gift in conjunction with an endowment from the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation producing $25,000 annually to support this program into the future.  Thank you to the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation for understanding the importance of this program and for securing our ability to serve our families in this way through your generous support.  Click here to learn more about this partnership.
