W4W is a registered charity that is dedicated to granting wishes to children in New Brunswick, who face life-threatening illness. We were originally comprised of volunteers from the local building trades unions as well as family & friends. In time we added community partners from local business across Saint John. We take pride in working personally with the child and family to create custom wishes. Because W4W is run by volunteers, funds raised can go directly to donating wishes.

Initial surgeries discovered that the tumor was malignant and right in the middle of his brain, making it difficult to remove. Doctors decided that an aggressive course of chemotherapy...See the full story
