My CHEO Story

As a child, I was admitted to CHEO because I had meningitis. I got to experience CHEO as a patient. As an adult, I have a child with a rare genetic syndrome. We’ve visited with a lot of the CHEO specialists : Genetics, Neurology, Gastroenterology, Respirology, Urology, General Surgery, ENT, Cardiology to name a few. Our middle child was born a little premature and had difficulty breathing and was admitted to the NICU for 10 days. We have also gone to the ER for croup and epilepsy.

Why I'm involved

Though my involvement tin the CHEO-RI Family Leader Program, I feel I will be able to give something back to CHEO.
