Please consider supporting the
Wish Gift program by making a donation to support the needs of our families as they care for their children. Gifts of any amount are greatly appreciated.
Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Wish Gift
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, along with a subcomponent of the Wish Gift, the Equipment and Supply Exchange. 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.

Thank You to our Strategic Partners!
Most Wish Gift requests are extremely expensive, such as a wheelchair accessible van. In order to fulfill as many requests as possible each year, we are grateful to partner with the foundations listed below in granting some of these Wish Gifts to deserving families. By working together, we can all help our families focus on what really matters - caring for their child!
The Liam Hammonds Memorial Foundation was founded in memory of Liam
Hammonds (3/4/2000 - 6/19/2001) who suffered from Krabbe Disease. In
partnership with Hunter's Hope, they are dedicated to serving families
affected by Krabbe and other Leukodystrophies.
Peace, Love & Trevor Foundation was founded in honor of Trevor
Aldrian, who was diagnosed with Krabbe Leukoystrophy in 2011. Their
mission is to support other Krabbe families whose children are too far
any of the current available therapies and are in desperate need of
love, support and financial assistance.
