Thank you Volunteer Services to Hotel Dieu!

Volunteers have been an integral part of Hotel Dieu and our community for more than 100 years!  They make a significant contribution to the hospital, both in terms of time and talents given and monetary donations.   At this week’s annual board meeting, the Volunteers to Hotel Dieu presented a cheque in the amount of $10,000 to KidsInclusive!  Some of these funds are used to assist families with the purchase or lease of special equipment.

Ben who is 4 years old (turning 5 on Christmas Eve by the way!) uses an iPad with an App called Proloquo2Go to help him communicate. Thanks to help from the Volunteer Fund, Ben’s family was able to purchase this device for him. At board meeting, Ben was able to communicate some info about himself, his family, and say thank you to the Volunteers himself!

Ameliya’s life was turned upside down after catching a common cold

Last fall, Ameliya was diagnosed with a rare disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS).    When she  was sick with a cold a couple weeks prior, her body created anti-bodies to attack the virus; however, those anti-bodies turned on her and started to attack her nervous system and the myelin insulation surrounding the nerves.   At the height of her illness, Ameliya could no longer sit up, walk, or hold her head up on her own.  Following a lengthy inpatient stay at CHEO, Ameliya began attending therapy at KidsInclusive.  She continues to amaze us with her strength, fighting spirit and her mischievous giggle during weekly appointments.   Recently, Ameliya’s family organized a fundraiser to raise awareness for GBS; community members had the opportunity to participate in a silent auction, enjoy great food, face painting and Little Rays Reptiles!  The Pellett family graciously chose to donate funds raised to CHEO and KidsInclusive where Ameliya had received treatment, as well as the GBS Foundation to further research.

We were honoured to receive a cheque for $1000 from Ameliya and her mother Miranda!  Thank you from KidsInclusive!
