Your Child's Surgery

We know that coming in to hospital for the first time can be a difficult experience for both patients and families but we're here to help.  Among other resources, we have put together a guide that outlines what to expect and how to prepare for it.  Read more here.

 

Patient Stories

Every child's journey is a little different but sometimes it can help to know what other families have experienced.  Read about some of the journeys here.
