My GetLoud Personal Page
This September, I’m joining an army: 5000+ SickKids supporters rallying together at a new fundraising event for SickKids, GetLoud. $2.5 million is our collective fundraising goal. We’re building a new SickKids, and it’s going to take all of us.
SickKids has always been on the front lines in the fight for children’s health. But the clinical facilities at SickKids are close to 70 years old. Today, one of the biggest battles at SickKids is against the limits of an old building.
Help me unleash the full potential of SickKids by donating online – it’s safe, secure and easy. Any amount you give today will help me reach my fundraising goal.
Let’s rally, march, and celebrate. When we unite in the fight against limits at SickKids, we’re unstoppable.
Three years ago, when my niece was only 7, she became very ill to the point where she was taken out of school and paid frequent visits to the hospital. The doctor originally thought it was nothing, then later wanted to perform a biopsy which would have had lasting effects on her growing brain. My brother knew better, he stood his ground, fled the hospital and went to SickKids to see a specialist. As it turned out Olivia would be diagnosed with the rare condition of antiMOG+Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (a rare strand of MS) by one of the most intelligent, competent, kind and compassionate persons we had ever met, Dr Ann Yeh. Without proper funding for advanced medical reasearch and treatment, Olivia would not have received the treatment she needed to get better. See Kurtis Hastings' page for the full details of our story.
Now SickKids is asking for our help. To solve more mystery cases. To treat more illnesses. To fight against disease. To WIN!
