The Stollery Children’s Hospital is an organization that is very near and dear to my heart. As a mother, I was on emotional life support when my son Lennox suddenly became very sick with a life-threatening illness. He was 6 years old at the time, and was diagnosed with double pneumonia. We thought it was just a common cold until our little boy was fighting to breathe.
Lennox underwent emergency surgery and lost more than half of his body weight. He was hospitalized for nearly a month. I will never forget his suffering and the fear I felt. Our entire family felt helpless but we remained hopeful thanks to the amazing and compassionate medical staff at The Stollery.
Miraculously, our little boy survived. It took Lennox 6 months to gain his weight back and today he is a healthy and happy 12 year old. The Stollery has been part of our lives ever since. Over the past few years, we chose to become avid contributors hoping that our donations will help make a difference to other children like Lennox.
I was recently recognized by Remax Elite as the #1 Stollery contributor in our office of 200 agents, an honour I won in 2014 as well. While it’s never about the awards, it was nice to receive this. I am pleased to continue contributing to this organization that I truly love.
