I created Diabetes Hope Foundation to assist children and young adults living with diabetes in their endeavours to achieve their full potential in education, self-management and future independence. Diabetes Hope Foundation continues to be the only Canadian non-profit foundation dedicated to improving and enhancing the quality of life of children and young adults living with diabetes each and every day. The demand for our programs and support continues to grow each year.
On Friday, December 23rd, 2005, Lucas Braun of Wingham and his family experienced the power of a wish come true. Lucas’ wish was the 500th to be granted by the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Southwestern Ontario, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
Hi. I just wanted to send you a message and thank you on behalf of our Atom B hockey team for donating the tie domi autographed jersey and picture. (through gary langfield ) It was a major part of our fundraising efforts and these funds were well spent as we used a portion of it for our entry in to the Bell Capital Cup tournament in Ottawa (the largest organized minor hockey tournament in the world).
I want to thank you for making my son Luke’s wish come true! We were in Toronto to meet with you and your teammates on December 23rd, 2005. You met with Luke and our whole family after your game against the Boston Bruins. I have been meaning to write to let you know how much we appreciate the time you took with Luke to make his wish so special. Taking him to the back room to meet some of the other players was so kind of you. Luke has not stopped talking about his wish since Christmas and about how kind you and your teammates were to him.
