AJ was only hours old when his heart started to fail.
Born with a congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), AJ’s stomach and bowels were pushed up into his lungs and his heart was displaced.
With donors by our side, the IWK Foundation is determined to transform the way care is provided to the most critically ill and vulnerable Maritime patients through the redevelopment of Critical Care into state-of-the-art Neonatal and Pediatric Intensive Care Units.
Your support is vital in helping the IWK invest in priority equipment and fund programs, research and new facilities to help Maritime patients, like Jayda Williamson, reach their full potential. Jayda has received care in the IWK’s Pediatric Intensive Care Unit — a care area that provides Maritime-wide critical care and complex care to the sickest and most vulnerable patients. You’ll read more about Jayda and her IWK story in the IWK Foundation Newsletter, Together, With You.
