To grant wishes in Northern Alberta so that every eligible child has the opportunity to have their wish fulfilled. Granting a wish is a wonderful, magical, and moving experience. The realization of a wish come true has a profound affect - not only on the child who has the life-threatening medical condition - but on the child's family, the volunteers and all of the caring supporters who make the wish happen. Having a wish granted fills children with hope, strength and joy. In fact, medical evidence suggests the experience helps to make ill children stronger - stronger to fight ongoing treatments.
There is power in a wish - a power that impacts all those involved in the wish granting process. From the wish child recipient, to the volunteer wish grantor and donors, the power of a wish is a magical thing to experience. Each wish is as personal and unique as the child who wishes it.
The mission of Make-A-Wish® Southern Alberta is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Along with the national office, eight regional chapters grant magical wishes to children in need from coast-to-coast. Make-A-Wish Canada 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 350,000 children since 1980.
