We first met Ronda Bamanga on the IWK Telethon for Children on CTV in 2008. Born with an incurable blood disorder, this young man has faced a great deal of pain throughout his life. Despite his health challenges, he’s been able to find what truly brings him joy in life.
After experiencing frequent headaches and blurry vision, Alyssa was diagnosed with a tumour on her brain stem that required a complex surgery. The support of her school and the IWK Health Centre's Child Life team helped give her strength as she began her IWK journey.
As the air ambulance approached the IWK Health Centre, Lori Delorey had faith that her unborn baby daughter was going to be okay.
Pregnant with her first child, Lori went to her local hospital after experiencing abnormal bleeding. She was then sent to the IWK for emergency care.
