I’m one of 100 women across Canada who are coming together to raise $1 million dollars in 2023.
This year, I’m showing up as a WOMAN FOR WISHES for Make-A-Wish® Canada, to help raise funds to help children with critical illnesses in my community.
This campaign hits home for me and I will be doing this to honour a best friend's son, Liam, who just wrapped up a.year-long treatment for Ewing's Sarcoma. Seeing someone close to you have their world shattered is heartbreaking alone, but even worse is witnessing the unbearable weight of the grief and stress that comes with the diagnosis of a critical illness. Their life has been forever altered by this illness and while Liam has come out on the other side with no evidence of disease- their journey will never truly be over.
The gift of a wish is one way to put a giant smile on a child's face and back in their heart.
That's why I'm participating. I have an ambitious goal of personally raising $10,000 and I know with support from people like you, I will reach my goal. The money raised will help bring every eligible child's wish to life, because a wish is an integral part of a child's treatment journey.
Will you help me reach my goal by donating what you can, so we can make wishes come true?
