Patient relief, respite and wish programs

Many relief, respite and wish granting organizations strive to provide ill patients and/or their families and caregivers the opportunity to focus on something positive in their lives. The products, trips, or experiences given by these organizations can provide individuals a much needed break from a struggle with a disease or the chance to give whole families a happy memory together.
