Grant life-changing wishes
Together with thousands of volunteers and donors, Make-A-Wish Canada grants over 1,000 wishes a year. A critical illness impacts the lives of a child and their loved ones. By granting wishes Make-A-Wish Canada provides critically ill children and their families hope.
When a child is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, this often means they spend a lot of their time in hospitals, undergoing medical treatment. Their childhood is blemished by experiences no child deserves to have to go through. In times of cold hospital rooms and doctors taking test after test, hope and confidence are much needed.
When a child’s wish is granted, it enables them and their loved ones to create a joyful experience which they can keep close to their heart. Having this experience can have a positive impact on the emotional and physical wellbeing of a child living with a critical illness.
What does Make-A-Wish Canada do?
Our affiliate Make-A-Wish Canada grants wishes for children who are critically ill. Every day, approximately three families in Canada find out that their child has a life-threatening illness. These children and their families often have to endure a difficult time, filled with doctor’s appointments and treatments.
Granting a child’s wish will give them hope and build their confidence. This can play a big role in their healing process.
Make-A-Wish Canada for national children?
Together with local communities, Make-A-Wish Canada renews strength and builds the confidence of children who are critically ill. Granting a child’s wish is a journey. It enables the whole family to have the best time and create precious memories.
Every wish is completely designed by a child. The only limit is their imagination. Make-A-Wish Canada takes care of everything during the wish journey. The families of the children don’t have to worry about anything!
Some children would like to become a pilot, and proceed to be a pilot during their wish day. Others would like to have a tea party in a castle, like a real princess. The wish can really be anything that a child wishes for.
