Welcome to Sunshine Stories!
This is a new blog we have created for supporters of BC Children's Hospital to give you a more in depth look at what goes on here at the hospital and provide you with an opportunity to get to know some of our patients.
Over the next few months you will be introduced to an extraordinary young patient named Paige who has been battling cancer for the past three years. Paige will be sharing her story about her illness with you in her own words. She'll be sharing everything from what it's like to be diagnosed with cancer, how she dealt with being at Children's Hospital and what she's up to these days. Believe me, she is one impressive young lady with big dreams for the future. If you choose to keep coming back (which we hope you do!) you'll soon see what I'm talking about. You can't help but be inspired by her zest for life.
In addition to Paige's story, we'll also be sharing some other information about various programs here at the Hospital along with some of our favourite photos and videos. We hope to post twice a week, updating you on information about the hospital and hear from Paige. We hope that you find the information useful and interesting - perhaps even so interesting that you share it with friends! To help us with this, we invite you to let us know what you think by commenting on posts or tell us about your own experience with BC Children's Hospital.
So what's next? Paige's first post! To help you understand where she's coming from Paige will give an overview of her story to date and then spend the next couple of months filling in the details about the impact that her experience with cancer and BC Children's Hospital has had on her life.
