The Wish Basket program is designed to bring an unexpected happy surprise to a child battling cancer. Each age appropriate Wish Basket (infant, child, teen), is delivered during the child’s lengthy hospital stay. Just when they have opened everything inside, the last thing they see is a $75 Master Card to purchase wish item of their choice. Parents have described this moment as the highlight of their hospital stay, and countless times when they leave the hospital the children are begging to go out and shop. Many parents are happy to oblige because shopping with their child is a small return to normalcy that has been taken away since their child was diagnosed.
“When the basket arrived at the clinic, the smile on his face was priceless. It took all of his worries away and he was so excited about all of the games that came in the basket. We’d like to thank the Childhood Leukemia Foundation for making our little boy smile!”
