OUR HEALTHCARE PARTNERS WISHES MATTER HERE OUR DONORS & PARTNERS Canadian Association of Blue Cross Plans With the support of our donors, we granted over 1,000 wishes this year. We are profoundly grateful to the companies, community groups and individuals who provide the much-needed funding that makes it possible for children diagnosed with a life-threatening illness to experience the hope, happiness and healing of a heartfelt wish-come-true. For 28 years, the Canadian Association of Blue Cross Plans has provided insurance for every child (and accompanying family members) who chooses a wish trip, waiving pre-existing medical condition limitations for the wish child, and making this wonderful life experience possible for kids who could not otherwise travel. To date, they have provided travel insurance for more than 13,000 wishes. We are also thankful for the support of many of our Blue Cross provincial partners during our first national Children’s Wish Month campaign throughout March 2017. Children’s Wish works with the largest Canadian medical community, in hospitals and healthcare facilities all across the country, to ensure that every eligible child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness or serious genetic or neurological condition experiences the power of a wish. This year, 839 healthcare partners referred over 1,000 kids to Children’s Wish, because they understand the medical and emotional effects of wish granting. They know that wishes work wonders! 23
