|Make-A-Wish® / Fais-Un-VoeuMD Québec is part of Make-A-Wish Canada® which is an affiliate of Make-A-Wish International®, the largest wish-granting organization in the world, making dreams and wishes come true for more than 415,000 children since 1980. We grant many types of wishes - travel wishes, gift wishes, wishes to meet celebrities and more. Each wish is unique and reflects the own individual desires of the child.
At Make-A-Wish / Fais-Un-Voeu Québec, we offer the chance to dream and believe in what might seem impossible to sick children in our community. These children all have something in common: a need for joy and support as they bravely battle their illness. A chance to wish and see a dream come true is ultimately priceless.
IMPACT OF A WISH
A wish holds within it the magic
of HOPE, STRENGTH, and JOY. In order for this magic to happen, we attend to every
child’s unique imagination, and grant them their deepest wish.
The process allows for the child and their family to confront the daily
challenges of coping with a child’s illness.
For these reasons, every wish becomes a priority for the Foundation!
GRANT A WISH
Any person can refer a child as long as the parents are aware. Beyond
this, there are four criteria that must be met:
- The child is between 3 and 17 years of age
- The child has a life-threatening medical condition
- The child has not received a prior wish
- The child’s treating physician makes the final decision as to whether
the child is medically eligible
The Foundation covers all costs and planning related to the wish. Our
amazing volunteers will accompany the child and their family throughout the
entire wish granting process and answer any questions they may have. They
ensure the wish granting process falls in line with the child’s health.
