What’s Happening!

Thanks to supporters, sponsors and CHEO champions throughout the region, there’s always something new happening in the community to benefit CHEO patients.

Making Every Moment Count

Making Every Moment Count

Families who access palliative care services at CHEO and Roger Neilson House (pediatric hospice) have children who are facing life-limiting illnesses that follow a progressive decline. The palliative care staff become part of the team meeting the medical and emotional needs of the patient and their family with the intention of enhancing every moment of each life, no matter how short.

Donor dollars make this work possible.
