Cloey

I wish to have my own puppy

Cloey, 11
autoimmune disorder

11-year-old Cloey enjoys spending her time reading chapter books and creating different pieces of colourful artwork. Just like most 11-year-olds, she LOVES puppies! ...Cloey was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder and lives with chronic daily pain that takes a toll on her mental health. There are days where Cloey just needs to stay inside her house, which can get lonely at times.

So Cloey wished to have her very own puppy to bring her joy for many years to come. Now, she will never have to be in the house alone – she will have her little furry friend, Bean. Bean has been such a great addition to the family! When asked about her favourite part of the wish, Cloey’s mom, Cassandra said “My favourite part would have to be the joy it brought to Cloey’s face. Her wish brought her true joy and put a genuine smile on her face – one that we haven’t seen in a long time.

Noah

I wish to have a French bulldog

Noah, 9
nervous system disorder

Nine-year-old Noah was born with a nervous system disorder that damages the membrane that covers nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, and has endured... numerous gene therapy treatments.

Noah wished for a French bulldog, and it didn’t take long for him to fall in love with his new friend, Jellybean. The tiny puppy has made an enormous impact on Noah’s life and has brought a sparkle into his eyes. Because of her, he is smiling and giggling every day. "Noah needed a friend like Jellybean to distract him from worrying about appointments and pokes - she makes him so happy and (helps) him cope with things a bit easier," said Melissa, Noah's mom.

Gentle puppy play and frequent puppy naps are exactly what Noah needs right now. "This wish and experience was so touching (and) that you all care so much to make my boy so happy and have something to look forward to,"

You can help bring back joy to more children like Noah.
