On August 23, 4 year old Cooper Coughlin will arrive on Prince Edward Island soil for a once in a lifetime experience. The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada is granting Cooper’s most heartfelt wish; to travel to PEI to meet his Island family for the first time. As stated by Cooper’s parents on his behalf; “I have family there (on PEI) who would love to meet me. They have been following my journey since the day I was born, with endless love and support everyday.”

Hailing from Fort Saskatchewan, Cooper was born 28 weeks premature and was diagnosed with an Esophageal perforation and Pulmonary hypertension. He requires complex care as he is G-Tube fed and requires oxygen 24/7. 

The Coughlin family’s relationship with Children’s Wish began over a decade ago, though they never could’ve imagined the path it would take. Cooper’s father, Kurtis, collected donations in the Summerside area in support of the Children’s Wish, Wishmaker Walk. Little did he know that one day his own son would be receiving a wish. 

Cooper will be travelling with his Mom, Brittany, and his Dad, Kurtis. During their trip to PEI, they will be spending the majority of their time surrounded by their loving family. At the family’s request, so that Cooper can remain as close to his family as possible during their stay, Children’s Wish has arranged for a camper trailer to be delivered to the property of Cooper’s grandparents. Along with visiting many sites across the province, the family is looking forward to taking part in the Atlantic Canada International Air Show in Summerside. 

The PEI Chapter of Children’s Wish is honoured to host Cooper and his family on behalf of our colleagues at the Alberta Chapter of the Children’s Wish Foundation.
