The week, you witnessed, and maybe even took part, in the 21st annual Corus Radiothon for Stollery Children’s Hospital.
This world-class facility helps children stay in Edmonton for their life-saving treatments instead of travelling across the country, thanks to your generosity.
This year, you donated $1,469,715.
Whether facing challenges like a heart defect or cancer or kidney problems, or brain damage from a car accident, they face it with the courage of a champion.
At 13, Kayleen arrived with the highest blood sugar ever seen at the time at the Stollery — 89.6. She had lost 20 pounds in two days. The Stollery, backed by you, nursed her back to health.
Today, 11 years later, she is a nurse, and was at one time at the Stollery in the same unit where she was diagnosed.
Most of the donors are unknown.
But you know who you are.
So, thank you.
