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.

May their wonderful memories with Alexandra bring them comfort and strength.
We received this heartbreaking message just days ago:
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
Please join ELLE in extending our heartfelt sympathy to the family of ELLE's Wish Child, Alexandra.
Right now, due to covid19, travel safety is uncertain & ELLE wants to be sure that all of our wish children are safe and can completely enjoy their wish without any limitations.
All of our travel & special event wishes have been postponed but definitely not cancelled!
Brandon & Brianna:
One ELLE of a Paddleboard
Meet our newest wish kids,
Brandon, a 12 year old, and
Briana, a 9 year old, who are siblings from Middlesex, NJ. Both children are suffering from franconi anemia - bone marrow failure.
They are huge fans of the ocean, and fell in love with paddle boarding when they took a lesson.
We granted their wish for paddleboards so they can look forward to loads of fun on the water this summer.
