Every day we are inspired by the bravery of our patients, clients and families, the support of our donors, the compassion of our health care teams, the tenacity of our researchers and the dedication of our volunteers. They are our heroes. They empower the Children’s Health Foundation to raise much needed funds in support of Children’s Hospital, Children’s Health Research Institute and Thames Valley Children's Centre.

Joey’s story isn’t just a cancer story. At four years old, he was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. But, unfortunately, more difficult times were to come for this young boy and his family. A few weeks into Joey’s treatment, his mother passed away unexpectedly. Three days after her funeral, Joey had a 12 hour day of treatment at the hospital. Cancer didn’t stop just because their lives had turned upside down.

Children’s Hospital became like a second family, going above and beyond any time Joey was in for an admission or treatment days.

Over the next three and a half years, Joey endured tough treatment sessions. During these difficult times, he never stopped smiling, never stopped joking and definitely never stopped pranking!

Today, Joey has kicked cancer’s butt thanks to the care at Children’s.
