Diagnosed with leukemia three years ago, the IWK has become 10-year-old Ava’s home away from home. This is a story of strength, courage and the power of friendship.
You may remember four-year-old Zaccari, of Moncton, New Brunswick’s story from last year’s Telethon. Born with a life-threatening kidney disorder, Zaccari needed a kidney transplant to survive. In February his mom received the call that would save her son’s life.
If I could say anything to Zaccari’s care team at the IWK it would simply be thank you; thank you for keeping my son healthy so that I’m able to have him and enjoy him every day. – Ashley, Zaccari’s mom
