This year I am taking the plunge and participating in the 5km Foam Fest in support of Make-A-Wish® Canada.
As many of you already know our son Ryan was diagnosed with Leukemia on November 4th 2013 at the age of 5. The thought of make a wish is what helped him get through the bad days he had during the treatment. It made him happy to think that at the end of treatment we would go on a fun vacation and enjoy family time without thoughts of the hospital or treatment. Ryan's wish was to go on a cruise, the thought of the waterslide, pool and basketball court on the cruise ship excited him.
Last year Ryan received his wish, it helped our family replace sad, painful memories with long lasting happy memories, it also felt like we could have a new start and leave the past behind us.
You can help make a difference too! Your support will allow the Foundation to continue to create powerful wish experiences, improving a child's state of mind, replacing fear with happiness and helping them to feel like a normal kid again. To learn more about Make-A-Wish® please visit makeawish.ca.
Every donation counts. Your commitment will help move Make-A-Wish® closer to their vision of granting the wish of every eligible child in communities across Canada.
