Help Grant a Wish to a Child in Your Community

After a bone marrow transplant and 365 days in the hospital away from his brothers and sister, 9-year-old Kael wished for a hideout where he and his siblings could escape life, relax, and play together.

Granting the wish of a child with a life-threatening medical condition like Kael can change lives forever, increasing a child’s willingness to comply with treatment, building confidence to help a child pursue more challenging life goals, and giving the family a healing experience where they can forget the hardship of a child’s condition.

Offering Hope To Ontario Families

At the age of 6, Kael was diagnosed with Stat-1 Mutation, a rare immune deficiency disorder that obliterates the immune system. A year later, he was living in hospital full-time and couldn’t make skin-to-skin contact with anybody, not even his family. He spent six months in isolation. Kael’s family visited him as often as they could, but his condition was deteriorating.

A bone marrow transplant, the donor his 4-year-old brother Eamon, saved Kael’s life.

After spending 365 days in the hospital away from his siblings, Kael could go home. When Make-A-Wish® got in touch with the family, there was only one thing Kael wanted; Kael wished for a hideout, a place his siblings could escape reality, where they could play together and just be kids.

Over 50 children in the Eastern Ontario community are waiting for their wish

Help us grant their most heartfelt wish

Thank you so much for all of your hard work, creativity and patience with Kael's Wish! He was very surprised and is thrilled! He is still wearing the keys. :) His Wish was more than just a dream of getting something - it was a dream of adventure and a dream of adventures with his siblings. They have 15 months to make up and are already enjoying every minute in the Hideout. Keep up the great work! Keep bringing families together.
