Make-A-Wish gives children around the world the opportunity to forget their illness and act like the kids they are; away from doctors and hospital visits. It gives them and their families a chance to create long lasting memories.
Make-A-Wish Foundation started on April 29, 1980 when a 7-year old boy with a life-threatening illness had a wish come true. Since then, more than 6,200 wishes have been granted to children across Canada. Regional Chapters have been established from coast-to-coast in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, London, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax.
Why are they our Friend Friday?
Today is World Wish Day. The Make-A-Wish Foundation is one of many organizations that grants wishes to brain tumour children. We thank them, and that is why they are our Friend Friday.
