When an 8 year old boy actively supports his mom’s recovery from Lymphoma, we know it’s time to celebrate.
Emil marked his 8th birthday by raising close to $500.00 for St Mary’s Hospital Foundation, the place that was pivotal in helping his mom, Danina, recover from Lymphoma last year.
In his mom’s words: “Emil is a devoted and loving son and played a major role in helping me to overcome Lymphoma. His ECHOage celebration was another way for him to say thanks for the loving care and support I received at St. Mary’s Hospital.”
At ECHOage, we are endlessly moved by children like Emil. Over and over we see inspiring examples of kids doing much more than adults had ever expected. Emil’s actions make these words come true.
Congratulations Emil! You are an ECHOage Hero. We know you will inspire many children to follow in your footsteps. The world is a better place because of you.
This year for Kate’s 4th birthday, she got a Mini Ipad from her friends, and she raised over $300 for the Montreal Children’s Hospital (MCH)!
Kate chose to get an Ipad because she loves to download apps and play games like “Strawberry Shortcake” and “Littlest Pet Shop”. She chose to support the MCH – from ECHOage’s list of over 250 charities – because her grandmother worked there for many years. During that time, Kate saw for herself how much the Children’s helps young boys and girls who are sick, and have to stay in the hospital.
Kate, you are an ECHOage Hero – you have made a big difference in the lives of children in Montreal who are in the hospital, and you have inspired many other children to follow in your footsteps. Happy Birthday to you, amazing girl!
Hurray for these birthday boys! Brothers, Jordan and Isaac made turning 2 and 4 extra special by supporting two incredible organizations, Make-A-Wish Foundation and The Montreal Children’s Hospital (MCH) Foundation at their recent ECHOage birthday parties.
Feeling blessed by their children, Kathy and David were looking for ways to help other families who have not been as fortunate. “Despite their overall good health, we have over the years been frequent visitors to the MCH Emergency Department and we have appreciated the excellent care our boys have received. In addition, we have always considered the Make-A-Wish Foundation to be a wonderful cause. To give a terminally ill child the opportunity to fulfill their last wish is priceless,” explained Jordan and Isaac’s mom Kathy.
Birthday present wish lists were on the sporty side with these active brothers. A basketball net for Isaac, and a bike for Jordan! Mom Kathy loved seeing her children celebrate with friends and family and shared: “The ECHOage format made the whole process easy and convenient for us and our guests. I found in the past my kids would get so many gifts that they would not appreciate them. This way they were able to receive one big gift, and they appreciated it more.”
Thanks Jordan and Isaac for being our ECHOage Heroes and for inspiring so many other families to follow in your footsteps! Happy birthday from all of us at ECHOage!
