The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada
Each year, thousands of Canadian children between the ages of 3 - 17 are diagnosed with a life threatening illness. For 30 years, and over 22,000 Wishes, The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada has worked in communities across the country to provide children with life threatening illnesses the opportunity to realize their most heartfelt wish. By creating unique, meaningful experiences, Children's Wish enhances the quality of life for these courageous children and their families. This year, the Foundation expects to grant over 1,000 new wishes, and with the help of volunteers and generous donors, is able to grant nearly three wishes every day. To date, we have granted 959 wishes specifically in Nova Scotia, with 56 more wishes still planned to be enjoyed. Each wish is an individual adventure, carefully structured to meet the needs of a particular wish child and their family. The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada is a national charity with chapters in every province and territory. Visit www.childrenswish.ca for more information.
