What if your child was sick and you didn’t have enough money to pay for transportation to the hospital, medication or the specialized equipment they need? Now more than ever, families are seeing health and economic crises collide.
Sadly, with more people in our community facing job losses and mounting financial pressures, there is an increasing number of families who cannot afford the essentials. For those families of children in medical crisis who rely on the Alberta Children’s Hospital, the double stress can be too much to bear. At the same time, isolation and uncertainty are exacerbating mental health issues for hundreds of other young people in our community whose families are also in financial distress. They, too, need our support.
How can you help kids facing serious physical or mental illnesses get the care they need and afford basic necessities? Simply by purchasing your ticket to this year’s Children’s Hospital Lottery.
This year’s proceeds will support a Special Children’s Fund that will provide families with much-needed relief and enable them to survive this crisis with hope and dignity.
Your support can help change a child’s future.
The Alberta Children’s Hospital is the world-class hospital it is today, thanks in great part to community support for the Children’s Hospital Lottery. For the past 28 years, the lottery has funded many groundbreaking initiatives that have helped the hospital become a national and international leader in child healthcare and research.
In addition to helping build the new Alberta Children’s Hospital itself, the lottery has also helped the hospital:
lead newborn testing for Cystic Fibrosis across Canada.
acquire state-of-the-art technology like a 3T MRI that ishelping revolutionize diagnostic imaging and research.
purchase Next Generation DNA Sequencers enabling specialists to pursue personalized medicine for kids.
Your ticket for this year’s lottery will support the Alberta Children’s Hospital Special Children’s Fund and provide much needed support to families in crisis.
