FortisAlberta makes donation to the Children’s Wish Foundation of AlbertaDec 15, 2014, 13:55 PM
The Children's Wish Foundation of Alberta is a charity that helps children and families by granting a child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness with a favourite wish. With every wish that the Foundation grants, they create moments of joy that help to ease the pain of a child and give respite to the child's family. The child and family are included in the wish fulfillment so that the child and family can share in the experience and create happy memories together.
The Foundation has been granting wishes since 1984. Over the past 30 years the Foundation has granted more than 20,000 wishes to children living with a life-threatening illness. Every wish is as unique as the child who makes it, from finally getting to cuddle with grandparents who live far away to hitting a puck with a favourite hockey player. In the often painful life of a seriously ill child, these wishes have made a tremendous difference.
In lieu of sending Christmas cards in the mail, FortisAlberta has made a donation to the Children’s Wish Foundation of Alberta.
