Who is Jean-Gilles?

Jean-Gilles

You may have heard his dynamic voice in a radio ad with P.K. Subban, and you've surely seen him on one of many TV shows. Jean-Gilles is a young actor and singer, and he's brimming with talent. He's also a patient at the Children's. For the past 3 years, he's been fighting a deadly form of acute leukemia.

Instead of celebrating the new year like everyone else, Jean-Gilles spent December 31, 2014, in isolation at the Children's to start the process for a bone-marrow transplant he was getting a few days later. The experience inspired him to give …

Room for Generosity and for Love

Un égoportrait d’Helen et de ses élèves qui ont contribué à amasser des fonds en hommage à son époux décédé, Stéphane.

Jaxon’s heart was barely the size of a walnut. And he needed an operation…

Tuesday, my little Jaxon, only 10 months old, underwent his second open heart surgery. How many people do you know that have been operated on over five times before turning one? My first pregnancy went so well, I didn’t even consider that the second one wouldn’t. I gave birth to a little boy, Jaxon, without too many complications.

The telephone rang – it was a doctor …

The power of giving

Brenda Beaudoin doesn’t just give to the Children’s Foundation, she gives back. Brenda knows first hand how important donor support is for receiving top-of-the-line care. She was just 10 months old when she underwent surgery at the Children’s. Later, when both her sons needed treatment—for multiple open heart surgeries or debilitating migraines—she realized again how important the Children’s community really is for her family. “I give to the Children’s because they gave life to me,” Brenda explains. “You cannot put a value on life, but you can put a value on time, which is what the Children’s gave us.” Time to spend …
