Here is at the bedside of an ill child. It is in conference with the medical team. It is a devastating diagnosis, gruelling treatment, difficult therapy. Here is beating the odds and the daily challenges of living with a debilitating impairment. Here is the positive effect of wish granting on treatment and healing. Here is the reduced perception of pain. Here is family bonding – making the family whole again. Here is much-needed support for a child and family’s mental and emotional well-being. And here is Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada. It is our dedicated staff and tireless volunteers. It is our generous donors, large and small, including the ever-growing army of individuals and businesses who work with us to help grant the single-most heartfelt wishes of children diagnosed with life-threatening illness. 1
