My CHEO Story

Our story starts in the Down Syndrome Clinic, then moved to the oncology department for a long while, we lived in the hospital for about a year in and out, so we could really experience the health system closely. We are familiar with many specialties and CHEO departments, we have had good, bad and some scary experiences.

Why I'm involved

I would like to get involved in this work, so I can give back to the CHEO community. Also, to be able to provide feedback wherever is needed, so I can help in different types of research and projects, and hopefully this would help families.
