When a child gets diagnosed with a life-threatening illness it takes a severe toll on their life. Despite this reality, life-threatened children still have dreams, and we want to fulfill them. Fulfilling the dreams of life-threatened children is at the core of what we do.Through fulling each child's dream we are able to bring a spark of hope back into each child's life, as we know children want nothing more than to have their dreams come true, regardless of their illness.
Childhood should be the most magical phase of one's life. For children who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, the magic is easily lost. Reach For A Dream tries to alleviate some of the emotional, physical and financial strain of dealing with a life-threatening illness by creating magical moments that last a lifetime. Some of the health concerns we deal with range from leukemia, cystic fibrosis, and muscular dystrophy to HIV, kidney failure and blood disorders.
