“Since our inaugural season, The Saskatchewan Rush Lacrosse Club has been a proud supporter of Make A Wish Saskatchewan, through experiences at our games and player vists. If you’re able to, please contribute to the Saskatchewan Rush Wish Hero Campaign, helping to raise awareness and funds to grant upcoming wishes for children across Saskatchewan. We set a goal of $5,000 and we need your help to get there #RushNation. Now, more than ever, it's important that every child gets their wishes fulfilled.” – Andrea Glieheisen, VP Marketing & Partnerships Saskatchewan Rush
Make-A-Wish® Foundation of Canada creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. They are on a quest to bring every eligible child's wish to life, because a wish is an integral part of a child's treatment journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness
Seven-year-old Bella has a heart of gold and spreads smiles and joy wherever she goes. She is incredibly imaginative when it comes to play and loves both music and art – she is always dancing, singing or drawing!
Born with a gastrointestinal disorder, Bella has spent over 800 days in the hospital and has had 21 surgeries to date. She has been diagnosed with multiple rare conditions, had a bone marrow transplant at the age of one and is currently on the list for a bowel transplant. Despite everything, Bella continues to move mountains everyday. While she is in the hospital you can usually find her in good spirits singing and dancing, brightening the days of the people around her.
For her one most heartfelt wish, Bella has wished for a princess themed playhouse in her backyard! She wants to sleep out back and see the stars and lanterns shine at night.
