The Ashley Wade Foundation

The mission of The Ashley Wade Foundation is to enrich the lives of children suffering from chronic illnesses.

“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”.”

Ashley’s Story:    “For 2 years Ashley saw numerous doctors and was treated at different hospitals for severe stomach pain. At age 17 Ashley was officially diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. Ashley learned all too quickly having fun came secondary to the rigors of treatments and hospitalizations. After many days in the hospital Ashley saw just how many children suffered from chronic illnesses, just like her. Ashley knows firsthand just how hard it is to spend days in the hospital or having to visit the hospital often for treatment. So many children suffer everyday and miss out on just being a kid. Watching other children suffer from chronic illnesses is hard for Ashley because she knows just how they feel.”

Her love for life, compassion and empathy is remarkable and Momee Friends of Long Island is proud to support Ashley and her foundation. Read more of Ashley’s story by clicking —> here
