Woodies Heroes 2023

This year Make-A-Wish Ireland are thrilled to be one of the chosen charities for the Woodies Heroes. It is thanks to such generous support that we can continue to grant life-changing wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses.

Heleanna and Mary Ann's Story

Meet our Woodies ambassadors for Woodies Heroes twins Heleanna and Mary Ann!

Both living with Hurler syndrome, Heleanna and Mary Ann had their two wishes granted last year right before their birthday. Heleanna was granted her dream purple playhouse with a swing set for their back garden. Mary Ann wished to meet her favourite princesses and her wish was granted at an exclusive Disney experience in the UK. Helen, the twin's mum, told us that the impact of their wish was beyond words, stating “It’s something the girls never stop talking about. To say it felt like a dream is an understatement”.
