Our Message

Della's Story: When Della was 5 days old she was diagnosed with viral meningitis.  At 16 days old we learned that the virus was now affecting her heart causing something called myocarditis.  Della was quickly airlifted from Victoria General Hospital to BC Children’s Hospital in critical condition. At BC Children’s we spent a week in the pediatric intensive care unit waiting and watching to see if Della would recover.  The staff at BC Children’s were incredible, from the nurses who provided round the clock care to Della and comfort to us, to the doctors who drew us pictures of her heart to ensure we understood what was happening, to the cleaners who shared a smile or nod of encouragement.  BC Children’s provided an incredibly high level of care and compassion which made the scariest time our family has faced a bit easier. In time, Della made a full recovery and for that we will be forever thankful to BC Children’s Hospital. - Della's family 

-       Each year more than 93,000 kids are treated/treating at BC Children’s Hospital

-       3,300 kids from Vancouver Island are admitted to BC Children’s each year for the very first time

-       Breaking that down, that is 9 island kids admitted to BC Children’s daily from our own backyard 

We hope we can help as many children like Della with our fundrasing for BCCH this holiday season. 

Thank you,
