Daniel & Henrik Sedin
In the spring of 2010, Daniel and Henrik Sedin along with their wives, Marinette and Johanna, donated $1.5 million to the Campaign for BC Children. The Swedish twins, who have lived in Vancouver for more than 10 years, made this gift to support the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and Diagnostic & Imaging in the new Children's Hospital.
"We've seen the kids and their parents and what they go through ' they're so strong. They are the ones we're doing this for."
- Daniel Sedin
"Having had the opportunity to visit the hospital on several occasions, we were inspired by the patients, families and caregivers there. We feel so fortunate to be in a position to help."
- Henrik Sedin
