First, thank you for your interest in Danielle's Dream Foundation!!
Danielle’s Dream Foundation was created to support organizations caring for families fighting pediatric cancer.
On March 17th, 2010 our daughter Danielle was diagnosed with a brain cancer called Medulloblastoma. Danielle was only a month shy of her third birthday. Further this diagnosis came just two weeks after the birth of second daughter Leah. As you can imagine, the stress of facing the challenge before us was staggering.
Thankfully we had help, and lots of it. Organizations like McMaster Children’s Hospital, The Ronald McDonald of Hamilton, The Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO), Sick Kids Hospital, The Ronald McDonald House of Toronto, Canadian Cancer Society, The Children’s Wish Foundation, Help a Child Smile, Children’s Miracle Network, Camp Trillium, as well as numerous private donors and fundraisers that aided us in immeasurable ways. We were and are blessed.
Now that we are on the other side of our journey, with two healthy children and the world to be thankful for, it is our turn to pay it forward, hence the creation of the foundation.
Within the umbrella of the foundation there will be numerous events in the years to come to support each of the aforementioned groups in their efforts to help others win their fight.
We learned that when we focus our energies and efforts, Impossible is Nothing. Please help us make a difference in the world for friends, families, and the futures of our fellow Canadians facing the trials and tribulations of pediatric cancer.
All proceeds from our events will go straight to those that need it most, and we will be creating multiple events with specific organizations in mind. We would never think of doing this any differently, nor would we take anything for what we do as we truly love paying forward the support that we received.
We thank you for your help making a difference in the world!
