Make A Wish SWO
Make-A-Wish Southwestern Ontario grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. We recognize that a wish child’s medical condition affects their family members as well, and as such we include the child’s immediate family in the wish experience. In July 2014, we proudly granted our chapter’s 1,100th wish since our inception in 1986! We granted 68 wishes this year, and we are currently working with more than 70 families at various stages of the wish process in the 16 Counties we serve. To learn more about Make-A-Wish Southwestern Ontario and how you can start granting wishes today, please visit www.makeawishswo.ca
