During these challenging times, it’s important to come together as a community to support one another.
While wishes that involve travel and gatherings have been paused until September 30, 2020, Make-A-Wish® Canada remains focused on our commitment to deliver hope and joy to children with critical illnesses. Thanks to the dedication from our community of supporters, we continue to grant memorable wishes while keeping our wish families safe.
Here are just a few of the wishes we've granted recently, following social distancing guidelines:
Xander, 14, went through cancer treatment and his wish for a sports equipment shopping spree has renewed his strength.
Bethany, 12, was diagnosed with a brain tumour. As someone who loves the great outdoors, her wish for a camping trailer was the perfect wish-come-true.
Anthony is 10 years old and has a neuromuscular disease. His wish for a video game room is making time spent at home more fun for him and his brother.
Now More Than Ever - Wishes Need You
There’s an urgent need to grant wishes for children with critical illnesses because there are more kids waiting for wishes than ever before, and every child deserves a childhood.
Right now, there are over 400 wish kids whose wishes have been postponed because of COVID-19 — and that number grows every day as this global pandemic continues. But our mission continues. We are already preparing for the day when we can continue to grant wishes to every eligible child. With your help, we can prepare now to make the stars align for wish kids who need it most. We can shine a light of hope for children in their darkest days, bringing them strength for tomorrow.
Ways to Get Involved
Your ongoing support today will help make every wish come true. Together, we can continue to be a light of hope throughout this time of crisis — and beyond.
The world needs the hope of a wish come true – and together, we will deliver hope to children with critical illnesses in our communities.
