Fairmont Pacific Rim or At-Home Experience


The 35th anniversary of Crystal Ball marks a milestone in our community’s efforts to transform care for kids in BC and conquer childhood diseases. This year we continue our quest to give new hope to the one in five kids with hard-to-treat cancers that don’t make it.

Join us for a unique and engaging evening as we celebrate the 35th Anniversary of Crystal Ball. Whether you choose to join our virtual gala from the comfort of your home, or in-person at the Fairmont Pacific Rim we look forward to welcoming you to this year’s Crystal Ball.

Join our longtime gala emcee Chris Gailus, and the charismatic Fred Lee as we share an exclusive evening together, united in our mission to dare to dream of a future where every child conquers cancer.

Kamryn’s Cancer Diary – Part 3

Imagine a fridge with more medication than food, a child’s soccer schedule being replaced with medical procedures, and a parent being trained on the fly to administer chemotherapy for their child, at home.

The path ahead is unknown but in the midst of daily challenges, Kamryn and her family still find many reasons to be thankful.
