Welcome to Help a Child Smile

Life for a child threatened by cancer is filled with pain, sacrifice, hospital visits and treatments. "Help a Child Smile" was born out of the need to bring some joy into the lives of these victims of childhood cancer.


Mission Statement

An organization focused on children with cancer treated at the Children's Hospital at Hamilton Health Sciences Corporation by providing opportunities for them and their families to smile and have fun.



A very excited young driver named Tyler Mayhew came out of the pits last night to claim the Daytona 500 Ultimate Fan Experience prize! Flamboro Speedway owners John and Frank Casale rolled the drum and made the draw. Also pictured are Beth Walsh, Tyler's girlfriend Larissa Spencer, Eric Crow and Joyce Hutson. Many thanks to all of our volunteers who spent much of their summer selling tickets, to the kind folks who purchased tickets and the venues that allowed us to attend their sites to promote the draw. Congratulations Tyler!


And the winner is.....

Barry Kendrick, 271 York St. St Catharines took home half of the 50/50 draw held by the Erie Shores Chapter 129 Help a Child Smile Poker Run on August 20/16. Congratulations Barry!
