Wish Upon a Teen's premier program Design My Room is all about making long-term hospital stays more comfortable for teenagers!

It’s easy to help a teenager who must spend weeks or even months in the hospital by sponsoring a hospital room makeover as part of our Design My Room® program.


For only $250, we purchase brand new bedding, wall décor, pajamas, robe, slippers, picture frames, sports memorabilia, arts-and-crafts project kits and more age-appropriate items that match the teen’s tastes and personality.  Making over a plain hospital room has proven to boost a teen’s spirits, instill a sense of well-being, and empower them during their long stay.

It makes a beautiful gift too - donate a room today in someone's honor!


The teenage years are filled with many anxieties related to self-esteem, body-image and planning for the future. For teens also faced with a severe life-limiting medical condition, the transition from childhood to adulthood can be especially challenging.


Since 2011, Wish Upon a Teen has worked on behalf of these exceptional teens by offering creative social opportunities designed to promote peer interaction and build self-esteem...

making a difference, one teen at a time.

From attending one of our amazing events, volunteering, and registering for one of our programs, there are so many ways to get involved in Wish Upon A Teen!
