On Wednesday, November 14th, 2012 at Richmond Olympic Oval…
10 local corporate teams will be banished to “Exile Island”, in support of The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada – BC & Yukon Chapter.
These Tribes will bravely accept the challenge to OUTSMART, OUTPLAY, & OUTPLEDGE the competition, while raising funds to Create the Magic of a Wish for 10 special children.
Nannies on Call Vancouver will be competing as “Nathan’s Nannies” – participating in challenges that will exercise our physical, mental, creative and strategic abilities. Our ticket off the island is to raise enough money so that The Children’s Wish Foundation can grant wishes for local children, each diagnosed with a life threatening illness.
Nannies on Call has been paired up with Nathan.
Nathan, now 6 years old, is diagnosed with Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, which leads to kidney failure. In March 2010, Nathan went through a kidney transplant and is still receiving intense treatment today. Despite the struggle with his life threatening illness, Nathan remains an optimistic young boy with big dreams. He is fascinated with technology, enjoys computers and reading, which makes him appear quite intellectual for his age. “He is always coming up with good ideas on how to improve on things!” commented his mother, Tina. At Thanksgiving, when he overheard Tina complaining about the meat thermometer not working well, Nathan decided that when he grows up, he will invent a better one and described the concept that the thermometer can be left in the meat while it is being cooked and sends notification through a cell phone app when the turkey is done!
Nathan is looking forward to his wish which is a trip to the Disneyland. “The anticipation brings hope and made the more difficult time easier for Nathan,” states Tina.
