For healthcare professionals, haemophilia physicians, parents and patients to interact globally
Reach for a Dream
The purpose of the Reach For A Dream Foundation is to fulfil dreams for children of all income groups and of any race, colour or creed between the ages of 6 and 18 who have been diagnosed by a doctor as having a life-threatening illness such as cancer, leukaemia, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, kidney failure and blood disorders.
Reach For A Dream believes that no child should live without hope. Childhood must be the most magical Phase of the human existence, filled with dreams, aspirations and most of all . . . fun!
We seek to alleviate the strain that a life-threatening illness takes on these children and their families by providing the children with the opportunity to realise their dream. Reach For A Dream enriches children’s lives by making dreams come true and as a result distracting them from the needles, medication and hospital environment. These young children are under extreme pressure to deal with these medical issues and are in desperate of our encouragement. Reach For A Dream offers these children a magical moment to regain their childhood that is being lost to an illness.
Please let us know if you are aware of a child with a life-threatening illness because we would like to make a difference in that child’s life too!
The HemoAction games were developed to help children learn about hemophilia in a fun, easy to understand, and interactive way. They can also be used by parents, nurses, and other healthcare providers to reinforce key concepts about the disease and its management. Children will also learn not to fear treatment by infusion and gain confidence and self-worth through educational play.
