Danny Wolff: Running for The Children’s

Danny Wolfe

Danny Wolff doesn’t need to run far to find his inspiration: “When I’m running, I’m running for my children, Dylan and Riley.” Eight-year old Dylan and Riley are identical twins who were diagnosed with Canavan Disease when they were five months old. Canavan is a rare genetic disorder that causes progressive and irreversible damage to nerve cells in the brain, stunting physical and intellectual development from infancy.

Through your donations, my story lives on

Laurie Malenfant

My name is Laurie Malenfant. I was born on April 28, 2009, and died on July 5 of the same year at the Montreal Children’s Hospital.

Running for the Children’s

Michelle Hamilton Brome Marathon finish

Many years ago my younger brother was diagnosed with extra-osseous Ewing’s Sarcoma and required treatment at the Montreal Children’s Hospital Oncology Department, beginning a period of challenges and struggles that no person should ever have to face.  To say that I did not deal well with the situation would be an understatement. I know it’s an obvious reaction to be upset when one’s sibling is ill but I really struggled to come to terms with it and spend time with him while he was in hospital. Thankfully he had a successful outcome and has gone on to lead a very …
