Dorothy and Bill Grant

Dorothy Grant and her husband Bill were devastated when their 11-year-old son David passed away as a result of a rare neurological disease. But today, almost 35 years later, David’s memory lives on at the IWK because of a legacy gift the Grant’s made in his honour.

Jeremy Ingham Cancer Research Trust

On Friday, December 29, 2017, Jeremy Ingham passed away after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Exactly one month before his passing, Jeremy made a personal donation to the IWK Foundation to establish the Jeremy Ingham Cancer Research Trust. The Trust will enable undergraduate science students the opportunity to apply for a studentship in research. Jeremy was passionate about cancer research and his legacy will live on in the lives he helps through the Trust that he established.

Celebrating 15 Years of Fuel the Care

Fifteen years ago an idea was sprung at Irving Oil - one that would greatly impact the lives of Maritime patients who rely on the IWK. It was called ‘Fuel the Care’ and since its inception it has been making life a little easier for the many families who travel to the IWK for care and treatment.

Going the distance for the IWK

When Cole Harbour, NS father-daughter team Brad and Alexis Crossley decided to enter the Trans Am Bike Race, they saw the US cross-country race as a platform they could use to encourage others to live an active lifestyle by raising funds for the IWK Health Centre.
