Ashley started the Ashley Wade Foundation in 2012 in an effort to bring joy to the lives of children suffering from chronic illnesses. As Ashley says "It is my hope to take their mind off their disease, and bring happiness, even if it's just for a little while. Every child battling a chronic illness is special, and I want them to know that"
The Ashley Wade Foundation fulfills their mission by their Superstar Program which is for any child battling a chronic illness between the ages 1- 21. These Superstar children receive care package, holiday gifts, and Ashley visits them when they are in the hospital. Anytime Superstar children have to go for a hospital stay Ashley packs them a care package to help decorate their room with a pillow case, window clings. Etc. The Ashley Wade Foundation also holds family fun days for the Superstar families. This allows children to meet others just like them so they don't feel so alone. It also gives parents a chance to connect and have support from other families. Aside from the Superstar Program the Ashley Wade Foundation holds hospital pizza parties once a month!
At 21 Ashley is doing amazing things with the Ashley Wade Foundation and using her chronic illness as motivation to bring joy to so many sick children !
Join us as we support The Ashley Wade Foundation's efforts to BE THE CHANGE!!!
