On April the XXth I will be running 10 kilometers in the Scotia Bank run, as part of the PAF-Néonat team of Sainte Justine Hospital (PAF means Partenarait Famille).
We are raising funds for the partnering with families program, which involves parents in clinical care, research and education in our neonatal service.
On the PAF- running page, please take some time to look at runners’ testimonials. Some children-runners are running for their brother who died in the NICU 12 years ago. Others are parents with their young premies. Others are young ex-premies, some with and others without disability. Others are ex-preemies, who are now adults, that are running. Their pictures and stories are moving.
And yes, some of the others are our own kids, Annie’s and mine and the kids of other wonderful providers from our unit and hospital.
We have a quite innovative program and want to expand it further.
To make a donation click on this link neonat-paf.ca, all of the funds raised go directly to support our program. Our program is important to us and to the families we care for.
