Getting to know you in COVID times

At the CHEO Foundation, we love to share the inspiring stories of our incredible families. We used to meet you in the Medical Day Unit, in the clinics and hallways, the Rainbow Cafeteria and CHEO School. We would listen to your stories of courage, resilience, triumphs of the human spirit and advances in science that changes lives. You would share with us your firsthand experiences of the care your child and family receive and the dedicated people who go to every length to provide it. These incredible stories all happen within the walls of CHEO, Roger Neilson House and the CHEO Research Institute.

Each patient and family have a unique story, but they share one thing in common: they deserve world class care to help them thrive. We want to hear those stories.

These days as we work remotely due to COVID-19 restrictions and we are missing these regular interactions with you. But we still want to connect and bring those stories to life through our various platforms and publications. Your stories help us celebrate and connect with the generous community that supports CHEO and the children, youth and families like yours that we have the privilege of serving. If you are interested in sharing your CHEO story with us, we would love to hear from you. Email us at  [email protected] and provide your name, a brief outline of your story and a way for us to contact you. We look forward to getting to know you.
