I've been a huge fan of Tysen's Mission to a Million, ever since I read about Tysen getting to meet Adam Sandler. The meeting was his wish, granted through the Make-a-Wish Eastern Ontario foundation. Adam Sandler inspired Tysen to pay it back.
This kid is incredible - not only is he dealing with his own health issues (Tysen was born with Pfeiffer Syndrome Type 2), but now he is on a mission to grant 100 wishes to other children facing life-threatening medical conditions. I follow him on Facebook and Twitter, and love to see the posts about children getting their wish.
On Saturday October 3rd, Make-a-Wish is hosting a Four Wishes event, showing the public the four types of wishes they grant to children - I wish to HAVE, I wish to BE, I wish to MEET and I wish to GO. Attendees will be able to check out examples of these wishes, by going to an ultimate dance party with Hot 89.9, being a paleontologist, meeting superheroes and having a new playroom to check out.
The event takes place at the Aberdeen Pavillion, from 10am - 4pm. Tickets are $35 and ALL proceeds go to Tysen's Mission to a Million. Click here to reserve your tickets today!!
