The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada works with 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 quality of life for these courageous children and their families. Thanks to our sponsors, partners, and generous donors, we were able to raise nearly $60,000 to grant the wishes of numerous well-deserving Children’s Wish kids; Maura, Khol, and Caleb.

Granted Wishes

MAURA’S WISH

Maura is 17-years-old and suffers from Adrenal Insufficiency. Her condition has resulted in 12 broken bones, uncontrolled asthma attacks, food allergies, joint swelling, and dangerously low blood pressure.

Maura’s Wish is to travel to Europe (perhaps inspired by her love of baking, painting, and dancing). A Mediterranean cruise will give her the flexibility to see all the sights and still rest when she needs to.

Maura’s wish was granted for $10,500.

KHOL’S WISH

Khol is 7-years-old and suffers from severe congenital heart defects that have resulted in two risky open heart surgeries before he was even six months old. Following his third heart surgery, Khol’s oxygen level has slowly declined and doctors are not sure why.

Khol loves to swim and he’s also nuts about Star Wars, making a Star Wars Disney cruise the perfect wish.


Khol’s wish was granted for $8,300.

CALEB’S WISH

Caleb is 15-years-old and was diagnosed with a complete heart block at just 17 weeks in utero resulting in uncertainty surrounding his quality of life and surgery to implant a pacemaker (a device he will rely on his entire life).

Caleb’s wish is to go to Disney World with his eight siblings (that’s right, eight!). Although he is excited about the opportunity to travel with his entire family, he is even more excited about the rides.


Caleb’s wish was granted for $11,200.
