Halifax Mooseheads Hoping to Grant a Wish for 7 year Old Sam Dewey

HALIFAX, Dec. 3, 2015 /CNW/ - The Halifax Mooseheads are hoping to raise enough funds during Fridays game through the ' Chuck A Puck' to grant Sam his wish to visit Walt Disney World.  During Friday's Game purchase a puck for $5 with a chance to win signed jerseys from MacKinnon, Druoin, Fucale and Ehlers signed stick. http://halifaxmooseheads.ca/video/67194

Sam who is 7 years old was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) at the age of 2. Sam's most heartfelt wish is to visit Walt Disney World to see Mickey Mouse and all the Pixar Characters.

"Words cannot express how emotional it is to receive such a special gift, not only for Sam, but for his older brother (Max) and sister (Sophia) as well.  Amazing big siblings, Max and Sophia have sacrificed so much (special occasions, invitations from friends, vacations, attention from mom and dad, etc.) while Sam has gone through treatment.  The wish will be a fit for them as much as Sam.  As a family, we are all looking forward to a true "family vacation" without concern for temperatures, medications, possible infections and hospital visits."


Friday December 4th at 7pm (during game)

The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada is the largest all Canadian wish granting charity dedicated to granting wishes to Canadian children between the ages of 3 and 17 who are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.  For more than 30 years, Children's Wish has worked tirelessly to grant heartfelt wishes to more than 23,000 children and their families.

This year, the Children's Wish Foundation of Canada expects to grant over 1,000 new wishes across the country with the help of volunteers and generous donors; that is approximately three wishes each and every day, all year long.  In Nova Scotia, we have granted almost 1100 wishes so far and have 96 wishes being worked on at this moment, still to be enjoyed.  Each wish is the child's most heartfelt wish, and carefully structured to meet the particular needs of the child and their family.

Already this year, we are experiencing unprecedented increases of wish referrals through our strong medical community relationships for our wishes granted to children with life-threatening illnesses. Now more than ever, we are encouraging Canadians to donate and support The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada to help us continue to grant the next most heartfelt wish. Children's Wish is a national charity with chapters in every province and territory. Visit www.childrenswish.ca for more information and to donate.
