Since A mother’s wish is comprised of Mothers with children dealing with Crohn’s disease, we are always looking into new and upcoming research that is on the horizon. We keep a hopeful heart that one day there will be a cure. As always, check with your own Dr. to see which course of action works best for you and/or your child.
Dear Friends of a Mother’s Wish,
A Mother’s Wish would like to thank you for your generous contribution in helping fill our raffle baskets and silent auctions. Our event on October 28th was a great success, and we know that we could not have done it without your thoughtful donation. We cannot thank you enough for your support.
We are so proud to share with you that as a result of all our efforts, including your donation, we will be sending a record number of children who suffer from Crohn’s disease to a camp specifically designed for kids with Inflammatory Bowel disease.
With warm hearts, we say thank you. It really does take a village for a community to make a difference.

Words just cannot express the gratitude that we feel after Saturday evening’s gala. The love and support that you all gave that night was beyond what we ever could have imagined. Because of your generosity, we will be able to send a record number of children to Camp Oasis this year. We truly cannot wait to do it all over again next year.
P.S. SAVE THE DATE for October 20, 2018 for the 10th ANNUAL A Mother’s Wish Gala Casino Night!
Please send any pictures you have of the evening to firstname.lastname@example.org…we would LOVE to see them!
All our love,
The mom’s of A Mother’s Wish
MARNE’ OPENED HER SHOP ON SUNDAY OCTOBER 15TH TO RAISE MONEY FOR A MOTHER’S WISH . HER SECOND COUSIN PAIGE HAS BEEN DEALING WITH AND SUFFERING FROM CROHNS DISEASE FOR OVER 4 YEARS . MARNE’ WATCHED HER ENTIRE FAMILY RALLY AROUND HER. SHE LONGED TO DO SOMETHING TOO. SINCE SHE OWNS A FAB SALON IN CONSHOHOCKEN CALLED SALON FABHAIR, SHE AND HER STAFF WORKED TIRELESSLY ON THEIR DAY OFF AND DONATED ALL THEIR INCOME THAT DAY TO A MOTHER’S WISH.
WE WANTED TO THANK THEM FOR A GREAT DAY OF HAIR CUTS, PUMKIN PAINTING, AND FACE PAINTING ALL IN THE NAME OF THEIR LOVE AND SUPPORT FOR PAIGE!
I WANT TO THANK EVERYONE TONIGHT FOR BEING A PART OF THIS AMAZING JOURNEY THAT STARTED BACK IN 2009. A MOTHER’S WISH FOUNDATION WAS CREATED BY A SMALL GROUP OF FRIENDS AND HAS TURNED INTO THE MOST REWARDING WORK I HAVE EVER DONE. WE ALL STARTED OUT AS STRANGERS, ALL FIGHTING THE SAME FIGHT, AND NOW WE HAVE BECOME FAMILY. WE CRY WITH EACH OTHER, WE CHECK UP ON EACH OTHER, AND WE LAUGH WITH EACH OTHER. THE WORK WE DO IS HARD BUT IT IS WORTH EVERY SECOND. THEY SAY WE ARE NEVER GIVEN MORE THAN WE CAN HANDLE, AND I HAVE QUESTIONED THAT FAMOUS QUOTE FOR YEARS NOW. HOWEVER, I KNOW NOW THAT WITHOUT THIS TERRIBLE DISEASE, WE ALL WOULD NEVER HAVE MET, AND WHAT A TERRIBLE LOSS THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN. I LOVE YOU ALL AND THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS MOTHER’S WISH COME TRUE! LAURA

Thank you Laureen for flexing your muscles and showing your support to those dealing with Crohn’s disease. Congrats on your big win! Laureen placed 1st place in her age group!!!! WOW!
CAROLINE, A YOUNG LADY WITH CROHN’S DISEASE AND HER FRIEND EMMA TAKE THEIR PASSION TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND SELL HOME MADE CUPCAKES!!! THAT’S THE WAY TO RAISE AWARENESS GIRLS!
We are so excited to announce a very important event that we will be having at the studio on April 15th! While we realize this email is lengthy, please take two minutes to read as this event is very personal to us as a family.
In January 2016 our youngest son Carter was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when he was just 5. While it is incredibly difficult to hear that your son will live with a chronic incurable illness for the rest of his life, there have been so many positive things to come out of his experience and one of them is the amazing support system we have gained in the process. My wife, Heather, was lucky enough to be connected with other Crohn’s moms in the area through the non profit organization A Mother’s Wish. This amazing group of women have given our family support in a time of uncertainty and we would like to give back that support.
We will be having free classes starting a 9 am on Saturday April 15th. While these classes are free, we ask that you bring a minimum $10 dollar cash or check donation with you to class. Any and all donations we receive will go directly to A Mother’s Wish for them to use to support other families in our immediate community that suffer from Crohn’s. Your donations for A Mother’s Wish will also help fund research so that one day we may find a cure for adults and kids like Carter.
Classes that day are as follows:
9 am – Kettlebell
10 am – POUND
11 am – FIT HIIT
12 pm – FIT Kids
In addition, we will have healthy whole foods snacks which are favorites for our family and other families we have met along this journey. Heather I will be here to talk about nutrition, and the whole foods based way of life we have adopted since Carter’s diagnosis. There will also be a few adult beverages for you to enjoy after class!
We will also be raffling off three very special gifts including a ticket to A Mother’s Wish Casino Night Gala in October, A 10 class package from metamorFIT AND A FREE SIT IN ON THE PRESTON AND STEVE SHOW!
We are also so excited to announce that Preston from WMMR’s Preston and Steve show will be in the studio at12 pm!
If you cannot make it to a class, please consider stopping by to meet members of A Mother’s Wish and the metamorFIT family, to purchase some tickets, to enter yourself into the raffles, or to meet Preston!
We really look forward to seeing you all on April 15th! Please see the flyer below for more information. You can register for classes by going to our website at www.metamorfitllc.com.
