About Us

Best Care. Most Hope. Because of You.

Children’s Health Foundation believes that children and their families in Western Ontario deserve the best possible care and the most possible hope when faced with a serious health issue.

That is why we are calling on caring people to help strengthen and transform the health care experience in our region. Your generosity will fund cutting-edge equipment, care-enhancing programs, and ground-breaking paediatric research at Children’s Hospital in London, TVCC, and Children’s Health Research Institute.

You can ensure better childhoods for kids facing challenges and serious health issues and hope, relief, and support for those who love them.
