Gabriel's wish to have an outdoor oasis

Gabriel, also known as "Babi," is a seven-year-old boy suffering from a brain tumor.

When we went to go meet Gabriel a few weeks back he said in a soft voice. “I would really love to go outside. I only get to go outside if my mom is taking me to the hospital.”

March 10, 2016, was a very special day. Not only was it Gabriel’s wish day but it was also his seventh birthday.

Gabriel had appointments at CHEO all day, therefore he had no clue what was going on back home. With the help of many people, the team got together to make his wish come true. A Lego themed outdoor space was created for Gabriel to enjoy some winter fresh air with his family. 

This little guy’s energy had been very low prior to his wish. His mother was so happy to see him interact, smile and be happy. “He's so happy,” said Gabriel's mom. She was so extremely grateful that we made this happen. She said this was the best thing that anyone had ever done for Gabriel and the entire family.

A special thank you to Luc Lapierre from LLRC, Party Mart, Joey White, Sweet Cheeks Cakes and Cupcakes, Carrie, Jessica, Michelle, Roltec Awning, Cohen and Cohen, Sony and all the volunteers for making Gabriel's wish come true!
