You’re helping kids with disabilities every day – Holland Bloorview Children’s Rehab

Message from Sandra Hawken:

Dear Donna Magazine,
Study after study shows us that a key factor in health and well-being is involvement. It could be involved in anything – a hobby, a group, a club, even a hospital.
Being a part of something just feels good. Donors, volunteers and staff often speak of how proud they are to be part of the Holland Bloorview family, and how it enriches their lives.
In this newsletter, you’ll learn about amazing people who have made the decision to get involved and are glad they did. I can tell you that your decision to be connected to our hospital has been good, not just for your well-being, but for our amazing kids and families too!
So thank you. And can I suggest that you be a little selfish and feel good knowing you continue to help kids with disabilities and their families. It’s good for your health!
Thanks for all that you do,
Sandra Hawken

Every time Alifa explains her son’s diagnosis to people they meet, her wish is always that she doesn’t get ‘that look’. ‘That look’ involves a sudden change in facial expression, to one of pity and sadness.
