Meet Giselle: the sweet and gentle 7-year-old who, before her diagnosis, recruited her friends to create artwork for kids in the hospital. Giselle is energetic and happy despite living with a brain tumor; she loves dancing and LOVES Katy Perry. She was thrilled when her wish to meet the star came true.

At Make-A-Wish Northern Alberta and the @stollerykids, kids are our first priority. We share a community of children—many Stollery kids are wish kids too—and offer support at different points of their medical journeys. We have a common goal: to give sick kids a fighting chance and change their lives. • • •
