On Sunday, April 12th, 2016, A  Mother’s Wish will again Sponsor the annual Walk for Hope! Our 7th annual Walk for Hope will be April 10, 2016  for a day of fun and exercise in support of children with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).   The Walk for Hope raises funds for IBD research at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.   Through research, a cure for IBD is possible in the lifetime of children affected by this disease today.

A Mother’s Wish sends 10 kids to Camp Oasis for Summer 2016

A Mother’s Wish is pleased to announce that it is sending 10 children, who otherwise would not be able to enjoy camp due to their IBD issues, to Camp Oasis which will enrich their 2016 summer!

Camp Oasis – A Fun Place for Learning, Playing, and Healing!

Camp Oasis is CCFA’s co-ed residential summer camp program that enriches the lives of children with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis by providing them with a safe and supportive camp community.

Camp Oasis – A Fun Place for Learning, Playing, and Healing!

Dealing with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) as a child is even more challenging. That is why the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) proudly established Camp Oasis over a decade ago. This co-ed residential summer camp program enriches the lives of children with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis by providing them with a safe and supportive camp community. Since all of the campers (and many of the adults) at Camp Oasis are living with IBD, our camps allow our patients to see that they are not alone, try all sorts of new sports and activities, and create friendships with people who truly understand them.

 


Thank You for being a part of A Mother’s Wish 2015

Dear Friends and Bingo Players,

 

WOW, what a wonderful time had by all last Friday!  We are growing by leaps and bounds because all of you have jumped in and supported your friends whose children/ family members/and friends are dealing with Crohn’s and Colitis! This was our first try at a Designer Purse Bingo Event and I must say it will not be our last. Our tax id for your records, is 27-3811993. If you were the Captain of your table, please send us the email addresses of your guests so we can be sure to include them in our email blasts.

 

It truly takes a village to get things done today and I am very touched by the growing village surrounding me and the other Mothers who need your love and support too.  Each year our goal is to add another family that is dealing with this terrible disease to this supportive loving group so we can make a bigger difference each and every year. Please send us any pictures you may have taken on Friday that we can share on our website!

 

Please be sure to check in on our website from time to time, (amotherswishfoundation.org)  to see the upcoming cooking classes and special Events for 2016!  If you know anyone who would benefit from our services, support, and fundraising, please be sure to let them know about us.  Also, Melissa Culp is hosting a Stella and Dot online shopping Event in which all the proceeds go to A Mother’s Wish! This will help us fill our raffle baskets for next year!

 

 

A Mother’s Wish thanks you from the bottom of our hearts for all your support and for a being a part of our journey,

 

May you all have a healthy and happy Holiday Season,

 

Warmly,

A Mothers Wish
