Taylin McGill

Taylin McGill has been a BC Children’s Hospital patient since she was 10 days old. Here, she writes about her medical journey and what she’s done to give back to the hospital that has saved her life numerous times.

"My name is Taylin McGill. I have status epilepsy and hydrocephalus. When I was a baby I got salmonella bacterial meningitis. I wanted to right this letter about Children’s Hospital because they have helped me a lot. I have had 14 brain surgeries and I am only 12 years old. My friends and I made bracelets to raise money for new equipment for children in need. I hope this inspires others to give back too. The doctors and nurses at Children’s Hospital are so kind."
