The playset that was provided for him from the Guelph Wish Fund for Children has opened up his world!...I will never get tired of hearing him squealing with joy as he plays. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

This is such a wonderful organization and we are so grateful to have them in our lives to lift the spirits of our amazing son!
~ Greg and Andrea
A gift so special is only made possible by kind, giving hearts. This gift is life changing for its recipients. What a chance to be able to do something, anything, with no limitations and to have it given to you by complete strangers simply because they care. On behalf of Tristan, from the bottom of our hearts, we can’t thank the Guelph Wish Fund for Children enough.
~ Rob and Heidi
It was the answer to my prayers during that challenging time in our lives...Being able to simply place an order because we had the funds from the Guelph Wish Fund, made a world of difference and we are eternally grateful.

Our week in Disney was magical! Complimentary treats and souvenirs, VIP front row seating for the Hallowe’en Parade, Nollan dancing with Sully at the Monster's Inc dance party - it was all so amazing. We cannot express how grateful we are to Guelph Wish Fund for making this trip possible.
~ Tracy Fitzgerald and Tracy Snowdon
We are so thankful for all of the support that the Guelph Wish Fund [and medical staff at McMaster] has provided. It has made this journey so much easier. Thank you for giving her something magical to look forward to. With an all clear from her surgeons, we can hardly wait to see Disney!! Thanks so much again!!
~ Carrie and Paul
Thank you sooooo much for the financial help which allowed us to purchase for him the Nintendo to keep his spirits up while recovering [from surgery]. Judging by the look on his face believe you me, you made his day/week/month/year! Thanks again, you are such a wonderful, giving organization and we cannot thank you enough!
~ The Hart family
Cory and I would like to thank the GWF for an amazing experience! It was a lot of fun and he was able to share a lunch with the brother and sister that live in Toronto which made it even more special. [attending a Raptors/Cavaliers game and watching his hero Lebron James play]
Elijah is loving his new vacation home away from it all. Thank-you with all our hearts and everyone involved for the kindness of this grant.
~ The Ashby family.
We want to send a sincere thanks to the Guelph Wish Fund for making this happen. Where do I start? Liam and his brother had an absolute blast fighting Darth Vader, riding roller coasters, dancing in the streets, going on safaris, eating delicious food...and the list goes on! You have helped create memories that will last a lifetime, it was absolutely magical!
~ Andrea and Greg
Thank you so much for this opportunity for a family trip! While we sadly miss Cuba, Romar had a wonderful time at the pool and beach!
~ Rojie and Maria
Thank you and your wonderful organization for this beautiful gift. I’m sure it will make memories that we will cherish for the rest of our lives.
~ Catherine and Rick
Again you have made Mason’s heart sing!
~ Laura and Chris
Honestly, we were both in shock when you said Isaac was going to be a Wish Kid :) I am still in shock actually and just so very thankful for what this does for our family and Isaac. It is an absolute blessing.
~ Adam and Heather
Guelph Wish Fund for Children came when we needed it most, and we are so grateful to be able to use this gift for family-oriented activities, which have included Great Wolf Lodge and Medieval Times. It is wonderful to give Isaac and his siblings the experiences we would not have been able to achieve without this gift.
- Adam and Heather
Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to do bedroom makeover. I appreciate all of your kindness and generosity towards my wish.

Otylia's appointments will be so much easier now especially her physiotherapy.
*Family was provided with a laptop
T. received his P-Pod chair (ergonomically designed measured to fit) this morning. It’s amazing!!
Oh my! We are so excited! T. danced into school this morning to tell his EA :) We just wanted to send a huge Thank you!
Nolan is monitored at Sick Kids Hospital and will need further heart procedures in the future as he, and his heart, continue to grow. We were told about the Guelph Wish Fund from another Heart Mom and are absolutely blown away by the generosity and caring this fund offers.
Thanks to the wish fund, Iszack is soothed nightly in his therapy pool after a long day. Thank you. We are forever grateful. ❤️
-Jason and Kelly
We are so incredibly grateful to the Guelph Wish Fund for bestowing this blessing on our family, and for all the donors who help make these amazing wishes possible. Thank you from the bottom of our full (and repaired) hearts!
-Katrina and Tony
*Seamus was in heart failure and had open-heart surgery as an infant
Following open-hearty surgery at three months of age, to celebrate his two-year-old birthday, Seamus was treated to a ‘Wiggles’ concert in Hamilton. The Guelph Wish Fund arranged a meet-and-greet with the cast. Both kids (Ed: four year old sister) were dancing and singing along - doing the actions from the songs. It was a great day!”
-Aaron and Vanessa
We were very overwhelmed and surprised, we weren’t expecting for Ethan to become a wish kid at all and especially not last night! We assumed there was a lengthy process. It’s a weird feeling to think we can actually do some dreaming on what Ethan would like. It’s been 5 years of just managing and dealing with day to day life of managing Ethan’s medical issues and challenges. So, thank you seems kind of weak words to say!
-Stephanie and family
Thanks so much! Briar loves her carrier! She is much less restricted now to seeing more of the world, indeed!
We can’t thank the Guelph Wish Fund enough.... what a blessing this gift is for Tristan and our entire family.
-The Green family
*Tristan was provided with a Trekker paediatric stroller
The medical support items that we received for Aria because of the Guelph Wish Fund have literally changed our lives! We cannot even begin to express how truly thankful we are for everything they do for the community!
