BC Children’s patient, Maya Ahuja, and her family visited the International House of Pancakes (IHOP) in Abbotsford to enjoy a few short stacks of buttermilk pancakes in preparation of National Pancake Day on Tuesday, March 8.

We had a lot of fun hanging out with Maya, her brother Danny, and their parents Karm and Gary Ahuja at IHOP and captured many photos and videos to get ready for the third annual National Pancake Day!

Maya has been a patient at BC Children’s Hospital since birth, due to a congenital heart defect and soft cleft palate.  As her dad said, “We know first-hand the incredible work that takes place at the hospital every day, and our family is grateful for the care Maya has received. Nothing can prepare you for having a sick child, but knowing that fundraisers like National Pancake Day are providing funds for the urgent needs of the hospital that saved Maya’s life, demonstrates the huge network of support for families like ours.”

On Tuesday, March 8 head out to your nearest IHOP Restaurant, order a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes between 7am and 7pm, and make a donation in support of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. Your generous support will help kids like Maya.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see some of the fun moments that we captured with Maya and her family at IHOP.
