A Legacy That Lives On

Connor and Kathleen Balcome knew their greatgrandmother, Gladys Hubley, as an energetic, lively and caring woman. Her love of children was always apparent and they were delighted to learn that she extended her love through a gift in her will to the IWK.

Gladys may not have known what an impact she made by leaving this gift but when one chapter of her life closed, a new journey began for the many patients and families at the IWK who will be comforted by her kindness.

Gladys’ donation was used to fund an inpatient room, allowing families to be together during their stay at the IWK. Gladys’ memory lives on at the IWK because she chose to share her gift of a lifetime.

For Connor and Kathleen, their great-grandmother’s generosity inspires them to find ways to give back in their daily lives.

In making this thoughtful gift, Gladys’ love and desire to help the community continues to make a difference at the IWK Health Centre, and it is teaching future generations the power of philanthropy.
