When the TLC Foundation gets a call to lift the spirits of a child there is nothing we won’t do or ask others to do to put a smile on their face. Lorelai is in Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto and had a very rough night. To lift her spirits we were asked to deliver her a gift but that was going to be very challenging since we are in London. After many hours on the phone asking different toy companies if they would assist me in getting these gift to her I finally found someone that was willing to help. I must say at that point my blood pressure was very high because I do not like to hear the words “I wish I could help but I can’t” I do not like to hear those types of responses. If you really want to help someone you will find a way to do it. Thank You Sophie from Toys Toys Toys in Toronto for taking the time to listen and help deliver these gifts to Lorelai. Sophie personally delivered these gifts and made a very sick child happy. It is wonderful people like Sophie that make this world a better place. She showed compassion and went out of her way to help out a total stranger. Just look at the smile on Lorelai’s face, how could you not want to do all you can to make her...

Sophia’s 2 and a half year old brother Tristan is very sick and has been in the hospital for over 3 months. Today I brought Tristan something that I hope makes him feel better. I wish there was more that I could do for this precious little boy, it saddens me that I can’t. I pray that a miracle happens but there is no cure for his condition. Sophia wants to be there for her little brother and has spent a lot of time at the hospital with her parents. I know how difficult this can be for the parents but it must be more difficult for a 6 year old who maybe doesn’t really understand all the is going on. Sophia is a bright spunky little 6 year old who is doing her best to keep herself busy while she is in the hospital. Today she set up a makeshift spa and gave nurses a manicure, and as she says at no charge. Sophia has an amazing personality and has made some friends with other kids who have to spend time in the hospital. Having a sick child affects the entire family especially the little ones who are probably scared and confused. To make Sophia feel like a kid the TLC Foundation purchased a bike for Sophia and delivered it to the Children’s Hospital so that Sophia could ride the bike outside the Hospital grounds. Sophia’s mom said she rode the bike for over 40 minutes today. The TLC Foundation believes in caring for all kids who sometimes need a little lift to get them through some difficult times. Our goal is to put smiles on the faces of kids when smiles are hard to come by. In the end if we can turn a frown upside down then that is the greatest gift we can give a child. My thoughts and prayers are with Tristan, Sophia, her parents and the entire...

What a great way to end this amazing trip by having dinner at the top of the world restaurant. This trip was both magical and exciting and something that I don’t think we will ever forget. To meet Chef Ramsay, Buddy the cake boss and Bobby Flay was truly a wonderful experience. The compassion that all of them showed Micheal was very heartwarming to say the least. The TLC Foundation with the help of all its supporters provided Micheal and his family memories that will last...
