In 1996, Alexander, the son of Fiona’s best friend, was diagnosed with leukaemia. Make-A-Wish granted his dream to go to Disneyland. Fiona never forgot the joy and tremendously beneficial impact this wish had on Alexander's fight to beat his illness - which he did! The power of this wish also gave the family respite and precious moment together.
Fiona's career in finance and marketing, in both the private and public sector, allows her to bring a wealth of experience and dedication to ensuring we are able to increasingly grant the cherished wishes of children very much in need of some magic in their lives.
With a long-standing experience in administrative management working for various finance companies, Christine Marmet's role today is to ensure that the administrative aspects of our wishes are managed efficiently and in a timely manner. A mother of two teenage boys, Christine is highly motivated in working for a Foundation which helps children in need.
