William, 10 years old. While playing outdoors with his brother on December 31st 2012 William’s eye was injured and was taken to a local hospital in Cowansville. The emergency room staff wanted to perform surgery. William’s parents chose to take him to The Children’s instead. William’s vision in the 1 injured eye was restored by Dr. Koenekoop. He created a fundraising page to help raise money for the Ophthalmology department. Here's a video made by his mom about the importance of this department: http://youtu.be/2RKf9btYJyA
The Young Ambassador’s Club
The members of the Young Ambassadors’ Club know a secret: even little kids have the power to make a difference.
These young champions have chosen to give up birthday presents or organize fundraisers in their communities to help make our Hospital an even better place for sick kids to get well. We are grateful for their contributions, and very proud to have these exceptional young people representing The Children’s in their schools and neighborhoods.
You child wants to be on the wall too? Get in touch right now with Angelika!
