Canuck Place Children's Hospice

Yesterday afternoon, Kelly's oldest brother and I toured Canuck Place Children's Hospice which allowed us to get a real sense of the value your generous donations in Kelly's and Michael's names means for so many  families.  This innovative facility was established in Vancouver fifteen years ago, the first of it's kind in North America, and it is now a model for the rest of the world.  How fortunate we are to have such an amazing group of dedicated staff, volunteers, private and corporate donors, all working together so that children living with life threatening illnesses receive the support they deserve in such a positive environment.  All families have their challenges, but by caring for others the way we do, our burdens are lessened which enables us to carry on.
