Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario grants wishes to children with life threatening medical
issues. We currently have a wish child in Cornwall who is waiting for their wish.
Each wish is a truly unique experience. We reach out to the community to help us make
the wish a truly magical event for the wish child and their family. The community will have a strong sense of pride and joy upon seeing the effect of the wish upon the family and
especially the wish child.
Every wish that Make-A-Wish® Eastern Ontario grants is as personal and unique as the child
who wishes it. But the impact of a wish being fulfilled is always the same – it has a profound effect on not only the child, but everyone that it touches as well.
A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to
battle their life-threatening medical conditions. For many, the wish marks a turning point in the fight against their illnesses. Doctors, nurses and other health professionals say, the wish
experience works in concert with medicine to make their patients feel better emotionally and even physically. That is why wishes matter. That is why we grant wishes.
Another thing most people do not know is that we receive no government funding. All of
our funding is through donations from individuals, businesses, and corporations. We also host our own fundraising events such as Rope for Hope and Wine for Wishes. We also receive
funding from third party events held in local communities such as yours!
