The Help A Child Smile Foundation

Help A Child Smile” is a charity dedicated to bringing joy into the lives of children with cancer. HACS was founded in 1987 in honour of Kacey Lynn Rainville, whose wish to go to Wonderland inspired family and friends to “Help a Child Smile.” Since then, it has helped or is currently helping over 800 families with children being treated at McMaster Children’s Hospital in Hamilton. HACS provides a welcoming package to our cancer families which include a parking pass, gas card and phone card. We pay for Ronald MacDonald House Stays, Bravery Bead Programme, Elma Cream Programme, the Fertility Clinic, provide computers, DVD player, books on cancer for the hospital, we have a bereavement night for families,  a teen night, and a variety of family events throughout the year… Fund raisers, trips to Disney on Ice, African Lion Safari, Wonderland, and a family trip to Disney World etc.
