Celebrate Moms and support BC's Kids with the Mother's Day Campaign
Kelly is a mother who believes in miracles and the power of Mother's Day. She and her husband, Derek, are the parents of an incredible little boy Jaden. At six weeks of age and weighing only seven pounds, Jaden underwent what was expected to be a routine surgery for a congenital hear defect. However, an unexpected complication caused Jaden to undergo a much longer and more complicated surgery and the possibility of another surgery loomed.
At Jaden's five-month checkup, Kelly and Derek received tremendous news. Jaden's leaky valve had repaired itself and he would not require a visit to BC Children's Hospital again until he is two-and-a-half years old.
Kelly looks forward to a celebrating Mother's Day this May 13 with her courageous and inquisitive toddler. To help support mothers like Kelly and sons like Jaden, BC Children's Hospital Foundation's Hospitality Committee has worked with some fantastic restaurants throughout the Lower Mainland on the Mother's Day Campaign. These partner restaurants will donate partial proceeds of meals during Mother's Day weekend to BC Children's Hospital Foundation. Whether it's a celebratory brunch, or a divine dinner, choose one of the partner restaurants, enjoy time with your mother and support BC Children's in the process.
