Kacey's Story 

 

Three-year-old Kacey is friendly, likes the outdoors and loves pets. She is everything you would expect a toddler to be but has been through more than most adults will ever experience in a lifetime. Kacey was just a few days old when she was diagnosed with a critical heart condition.

 

Since then, she has bravely undergone multiple open-heart surgeries and countless procedures at the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), all with her resilient mother, Katrina, her father Kody and her grandma by her side. Through it all, Kacey remained strong and determined. Despite the challenges that came with the pandemic, Katrina shares that the team at SickKids was warm and kind, and nothing short of amazing, making a challenging time in young Kacey's life a lot easier.

 

 

“SickKids went above and beyond to make sure she was comfortable and taken care of,” says Katrina.


Kacey is now thriving and loves spending time with her family, including her loving great-aunt Darlene, a Northern Reflections District Sales Manager!

But most of all, Kacey is an inspiration to everyone who meets her and proof that warriors come in all shapes and sizes. The strength, positivity and courage of her family, combined with the expert help she received from hospital staff at SickKids, have all contributed to making Kacey the happy, curious girl she is today.Because of your support, Kacey and children like her can receive the care they need to live happy, fulfilling lives.

 

Liam's Story

 

Meet Liam, a resilient boy diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis shortly after birth. He receives dedicated care at McMaster Children’s and SickKids Hospital, where compassionate staff turn tough times into positive experiences. Despite challenges, Liam finds joy in simple pleasures—playing at the park, building with Lego, and indulging in superhero movies. A devoted fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Austin Matthews, he radiates positivity and kindness.

 

Beyond his personal battles, Liam actively engages in fundraising as a "CF Warrior," spreading awareness on various TV programs, including CTV News. Liam, Strong As A Tree, is a heartfelt book he authored, with proceeds supporting local children's hospitals. His generosity extends further; in December, he dropped off toys and emphasized the need for comfort kits to support parents facing unexpected hospital stays.

The revolutionary drug Trikafta has brought a new lease on life for Liam. Despite periodic sickness, he excels in track and field, ranking an impressive 54th. Focused on personal growth and community service, Liam recently donated 200 comfort kits to SickKids Hospital, expanding the initiative to Grand River Hospital.

Approaching his ninth birthday, Liam looks forward to celebrating with friends at East Side Mario's. As a dedicated Leafs fan, he's grown taller, stays busy throughout the day, and has started skating. With aspirations to become a police officer or a hockey player, Liam's determination and positive spirit shine brightly, inspiring others along his journey. Despite the challenges of Cystic Fibrosis, he remains a staunch advocate, spreading hope and support to those facing similar battles.

 

Emmy's Story   

 

Shortly after Emmy was born, she lost interest in feeding and was very lethargic. When Emmy started struggling to breathe, it became evident that she needed urgent help. Emmy's parents, Ryan and Bethany, rushed their baby to HSC Winnipeg Children’s Hospital, where the talented, caring medical team, began to treat her for bacterial meningitis.

 

The road to recovery was long and arduous for Emmy’s tiny body. With their baby hooked up to many tubes and machines, Emmy's parents took turns sitting at her bedside holding her tiny hand hoping for the best. As the days passed, Emmy experienced several seizures and suffered small strokes caused by the infection. While this situation alone was devastating, Ryan & Bethany had very limited support from family or friends due to Covid-19 restrictions and also juggled caring for their four year old daughter, Myla. Simple things like getting meals or running out for a breath of fresh air, were made more difficult with limited services and screening required each time they entered the hospital. The open terrace in the cafeteria provided a refuge and allowed the family to regroup and reset every day.

 

After a month long stay, Emmy was finally able to go home with her family. The quick actions of the emergency team saved Emmy's life. The close monitoring and attention that each department dedicated to Emmy allowed Ryan and Bethany to leave the hospital with Emmy in their arms. Emmy now sees a Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist and the Neurology Team to support her through the impact from the strokes that she suffered. Emmy is now a happy, active baby who is hitting all of her developmental milestones. She loves playing with her big sister, going for walks, jumping in her Jolly Jumper and getting tickled. “We are so thankful for the incredible Children’s Hospital team members that helped us on this journey, and for everything they do on a daily basis for all of the families in their care,” says Bethany.
