Make a Sick Kids Miracle Happen
On September 25, 2020, I’m joining an army: 3000+ 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.
Some things are meant to change, and SickKids is one of those things. SickKids is in need of a new hospital, and that will take lots of donations. But if any hospital deserves all this money, it’s SickKids. Throughout my childhood I’ve had more needles than most people do in a lifetime. I suffer from a very rare neuro-inflammatory MOG disease. The steps to this diagnosis were a series of MRIs, spinal taps and hospital visits when I was only seven years old. I went through extreme headaches and vomiting from pain followed by countless diagnoses ranging from a brain tumour to Lupus. Because of the mysterious case I was transferred to Toronto’s SickKids where I was cared for by my amazing and supportive Dr. Yeh, a specialist in neuro-inflammatory diseases. She was able to diagnose and treat my rare condition and I feel much better - Though my illness brings us back to Toronto a few times a year, we thank all the doctors and nurses who helped and continue to help with my condition. For this reason we donate to this amazing hospital. My family and I encourage you to donate to these children who need it most. A big thank you to everyone who have already donated, and another thank you for supporting my campaign.
Please take a moment to checkout a couple videos to learn more about why SickKids needs to be updated.
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.
