Making a Difference
If you've ever experienced any kind of burn, you can understand how excruciating the pain can be. As a firefighter, I've witnessed first hand how much pain a patient can endure from a burn. It’s especially traumatic when a child is involved.
The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) is known as one of the world’s top children’s hospitals. It is Canada’s leading centre dedicated to improving children’s health and is home to Canada largest, hospital-based child health research institute. SickKids also has the largest pediatric burn program in Canada
SickKids has a tradition of helping children all over the world - including international patient care, training and education of health professionals around the world and strengthening local health systems. Over the years, the international programs at SickKids have reached children in more than 100 countries.
I have personally spent some time at SickKids children’s hospital. The time I spent there was a bit of a life changing experience, and made me quickly realize how grateful I was for my health. A lot of the children there have a real fight on their hands, some of which are too young to even realize it. SickKids hospital will always hold a special place in my heart.
Thank you so much for your support! I can’t express how truly amazing it is to have the support of friends, family and my community for such a worthy cause!
