Meet Our Heroes

IWK Heroes

When you give to the IWK Foundation, you are helping to change the lives of the women, children and youth who depend on the IWK.

We are honoured to share the stories of courageous patients, amazing caregivers and generous donors who know the value of the IWK to the Maritime community.

Meet some of the people who bring the IWK to life every day.

One’s life is not measured in number of years lived, but by the impact they have had while living. There is no truer statement to describe the life and legacy of Andrea Crowe.

Katie Hallett, IWK patient

Katie Hallett

It’s not uncommon to hear patients say that the IWK is like a home-away-from-home. For eight-year-old Katie Hallett from Shelburne, NS it was her very first home where she lived for the first 630 days of her life.
