To learn more about why we feel so strongly about supporting the Alberta Children's Hospital, please read our story below.
In May 2017, we dealt with a very serious health scare with one of our children. Just shy of 3 years old, Cooper was admitted to the Alberta Children’s hospital with a complicated Pneumonia and Empyema caused by a Strep A Infection.
We took him to both a hospital emergency department and doctor’s office over the course of 2 days, where we felt like we were not being taken seriously, and he was getting sicker. Late in the evening on May 2, 2017, we took him to the Alberta Children’s Hospital where they recognized the severity of his condition and admitted him immediately.
Cooper spent 3 days in the ICU and had total stay of 12 days in the hospital. He had a chest tube, a feeding tube, oxygen, a catheter, 2 IV ports at all times, many X-rays and countless needles. It was an extremely scary time for all of us but the staff at the Alberta Children’s Hospital were truly amazing and we knew he was being well taken care of.
Here we are almost 2 years later and Cooper is in full health. We are incredibly grateful for the care that he received and to show our appreciation and gratitude for such an amazing facility and group of staff, we plan to support the Alberta Children's Hospital annually. Last year we raised $1300 with our 'Move Mountains' campaign and we hope to be able to make a difference again this year.
