The patients and families at the IWK are brave—they are fighters— they are warriors and I want to continue to help ensure they have access to world-class care when they need it most.
I've become a Warrior for the IWK, so that I can stand by those families that need the IWK. We were once one of those families and we are forever grateful for the care we received from all of the staff at the IWK.
I still remember one day a momma who was once in the NICU too, and had lost one of her twin boys coming in to meet me when I was at my worst. I had lost a baby and the other one was still fighting for her life and I felt like I had nothing left in me. She told me I was a warrior and that although I wouldn't feel it for a while, one day many years later I would be looking down at my girl with extreme proudness and strength knowing where she came from and everything she has been through.
