The mission of Help Fill A Dream is to provide hope, help and happiness for children 18 and under with life threatening conditions by fulfilling their dreams and providing assistance to their families.
About HELP FILL A DREAM FOUNDATION
Putting a smile on the face of child is a magical feeling. When a child is diagnosed with a life-threatening condition a family’s focus becomes their child, their medical appointments and treatment; there’s no time for anything else. Since 1986 Help Fill a Dream Foundation has been supporting those families from Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands whose lives have suddenly changed due to their child’s diagnosis with a medical condition or severe health challenge.
Support comes in all sorts of ways. When families are in survival mode the Bear Essentials program provides a lifeline. We try to pick up the practical and financial worry, allowing parents to focus on the most important thing: the health of their child.
After treatment is finished it is time for the child who has been through so much to have a Dream fulfilled. These Dreams are powerful things for children with life-threatening conditions such as Type 1 diabetes, childhood cancers or cystic fibrosis.
In the past year Help Fill A Dream has raised over three quarters of a million dollars, and over 300 families were supported. With donor support we can continue to make the impossible, possible. Never underestimate the power of dreams, or the role you could play in helping fill them.
