Share your story
Every year, tens of thousands of lives are transformed by the care they receive at BC Children’s Hospital. These stories have the potential to help others. By sharing your experience, you can give hope to families who are going through a similar journey and show others the impact their donations can have.
Here are a handful of places your story can appear, with your prior consent:
- On our website or in publications, social media channels, donor proposals and fundraising programs;
- Local telethons or news stories;
- Through speaking engagements at fundraising or donor recognition events;
- In a thank you letter for donor materials or events.
You might also be invited to attend a photo shoot, so that your child’s photo can be used in various publications and fundraising materials (we will request your approval before using the photo).
Please note: We will contact you with a follow up email if and when we have an opportunity to share your story. Your story or photo(s) will not be shared without your prior consent.
We often feature patient and family stories on social media, in publications and as part of our communications with donors. These stories help to promote and encourage support for the programs and services of BC Children’s Hospital while at the same time showcasing patient experiences at the hospital and across the province.
