Celebrating Sarah

In 2011, Ed and Anne Van Donkersgoed adopted three little girls – Gracie, Emma and Sarah. The IWK immediately became an important part of their life.

Recently, the IWK was there to help this family through the most challenging time of their lives and continues to support them as they honour the memory of their daughter Sarah.

We had Sarah for three-and-a-half years because of what the IWK did for our family. And in the end, they helped us as we said goodbye to our daughter. – Anne, Sarah’s mom

Today, Emma is still closely followed by the IWK’s Heart Clinic and will be for some years to come.
