Dreams and so much more.
Help Fill A Dream provides support for families in a variety of ways. When the parents’ of children with a life-threatening condition find themselves in an impossible situation, we can help.
Our Bear Essentials Program in partnership with Children’s Health Foundation of Vancouver Island supports Vancouver Island kids who have medical conditions, health challenges or disabilities. This program provides support to help cover:
- Travel costs associated with receiving health care that is unavailable in a child/youth’s home community i.e. transportation, parking, food, accommodation
- Medical or therapeutic equipment to address special needs i.e. orthotics, insulin pump, special seating
- Therapeutic resources to support a child/youth i.e. specialized formula, non-insured medications, therapies not publicly offered
For more information, please go to our Bear Essentials page.
Dreams matter. Dreams replace the frustration and despair a child experiences while undergoing treatment with hope, which is so essential to fighting disease and disability. For a child facing the uncertainty of a life-threatening condition, hope and happiness help the healing process. They are carried from a place of uncertainty and are shown that good things can still happen in their future.
Each Dream is as unique as the child requesting it. Dreams can be big or small, near or far, fast or slow. We have fulfilled Dreams of travel, Dreams which include friends and family, Dreams of meeting celebrities, Dreams of pirate ship playhouses and backyard fairy gardens, Dreams of families simply being together.
