Helping children with Crohn's

Hi I am Vice-President of The Ashley Wade Foundation ! Our goal is to enrich the lives of children affected a chronic illness by providing them with care packages, tickets to events, toys and games ! Kids with chronic illnesses are often forgotten when it comes to receiving gifts. The Ashley Wade Foundation has a new program called The Superstars. Superstars are children fighting a chronic illness. We send the children care packages or give them tickets to events. If you know someone with a child or have a child who has a chronic illness, please contact us at [email protected].
