A 12-year-old Abbotsford girl would like to go to Maui, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation is hoping to grant her wish, with the support of a restaurant chain.

Cactus Club restaurants in B.C. and Alberta are donating proceeds from every sale of the Peanut Butter Crunch Bar during April.

They want to raise $6,000 to help fulfill the wish of Grace, who was born with biliary atresia – a life-threatening condition resulting in liver damage.

Grace was admitted to B.C. Children’s Hospital for her first surgery at nine weeks old. Since then, she has been hospitalized numerous times and has received two liver transplants.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants wishes for children between the ages of three and 17 who have life-threatening illnesses.

Grace chose a trip to Maui because she has a love of outdoor activities, including jumping on her grandparents’ trampoline, swimming and skateboarding.

Cactus Club, which opens in Abbotsford this summer, has supported the Make-A-Wish Foundation for the last decade.
