Every child should enjoy a life full of laughter, shared joy, and memories with the people they love. Since 1984, The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada has granted over 17,000 wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses. Children’s Wish is proud of its tradition of never refusing a wish to an eligible child.

The maker of Gravol has been proudly supporting Children’s Wish since 2008, helping kids like Emily, Jessica, Sydney and Isabella.

Emily’s Story

Nine-year-old Emily has been through a lot in her young life. Diagnosed with a brain tumour, she had to undergo surgery to have it removed. It was an unimaginably difficulttime for Emily and her family. Children’s Wish granted her most heartfelt wish for a trip to Hawaii and gave Emily and her family much needed relief from the pressures of a life-threatening illness.

Sydney’s Story

Sydney, 13 years old, suffers from Significant Immune Deficiency, Autoimmune Neutrepenia, Thrombocytopenia, and Chronic Lung Disease. Her wish was to swim with the dolphins and sea lions at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. In February 2011, Sydney got her wish, creating special memories with the people she loves most.

Jessica’s Story

Jessica, 13 years old and battling a form of cancer called Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, has always loved camping with her family, but exposure to germs made it risky in the past. In 2011, Children’s Wish gave Jessica her very own camping trailer, so she can enjoy her favourite pastime without worrying about her health.

Isabella’s Story

Between 2007 and early 2009, Isabella received chemotherapy for optic gliomas, which could have caused blindness if they were left untreated. The gliomas were caused by a condition called neurofibromatosis type1 (NF1). But Isabella is a trouper, and she tackled her treatment well. Isabella was thrilled to get her wish to spend Christmas of 2009 with her idols, Mickey and Minnie Mouse at Disney World in Florida—a great Christmas for a four year old.
