There are few things that can make an adult happier than seeing a child beam with joy. Their love for life, curiosity and fearlessness often remind us of what really matters in life, and encourage us to pursue what makes us happy. We are particularly inspired by four-year-old Siena (Sisi), who is currently battling rhabdomyosarcoma, a life-threatening medical condition, but continues to bring happiness to everyone she meets.
We wanted to make a big difference in Sisi’s life, so since the beginning of March, Shulman Law Firm has been working together to collect $10,000 in donations to support Sisi through Make-A-Wish® Canada. Sisi’s wish is to visit a magical theme park in Florida with her family, where she plans to give big hugs to her favourite movie characters, swim and play with her siblings, and enjoy a brilliant display of fireworks.
We are absolutely thrilled than we can help Make-A-Wish provide children who are fighting life-threatening illnesses with something that will give them with hope, strength and joy. Make-A-Wish has reported 97 per cent of adult former wish kids experienced improved mental and emotional health because of their wish, and 71 per cent of adult former wish kids believe their wish experience contributed to saving their lives. We hope that on her trip, Sisi will find an additional source of strength and happiness that she so deserves.
We’re well on our way to meeting our goal, and are looking forward to more doing more as a team to make Sisi’s dream come true.
