Meet our newest wish kid, Carlos,
a 17 year old from Philadelphia.

In 2015, at the age of 12, Carlos was first diagnosed & treated for osteosarcoma at NY Presbyterian Weill Cornell. Then at the age of 16, after being in remission for 4 years, Carlos faced the terrifying diagnosis of a recurrence in October of 2019.
We granted his wish for a MacBook Air with accessories so that he can attend online college classes.

May their wonderful memories with Alexandra bring them comfort and strength.

We received this heartbreaking message just days ago:

Hello.   
I am so very devastated that I have to let you know that our only daughter Alexandra passed away on Sunday, 11/08/20 at 2:30 in the morning.  
I so wanted to be able to take her on the "ONE ELLE OF A TRIP"  we had planned for so very long ago.     
I wish we had more time to build more memories.
Clint & Kelly

The ELLE Foundation is the only wish granting organization whose primary mission is to grant wishes for children with a recurrence of cancer. Granting final second wishes requires an extraordinary financial commitment, but our Lauren's passion inspires us every day, and our dedication to giving these deserving children a chance to forget, to laugh and to find their 

inner spirit is unwavering.


We are proud to say that we are an all volunteer run 501(c)(3) foundation and 93% of every dollar raised goes directly to granting wishes. Thanks to our generous sponsors and donors we have granted over 56 wishes just in the past 10 years.
