During these difficult times, your support is urgently needed to help kids with ongoing health conditions. For kids like five-year old Nate who developed severe abdominal pain during the COVID-19 pandemic, the scariness of the unknown increased tenfold for his family.

Living in rural Newfoundland and Labrador with limited pediatric care, Nate had to be transferred to the Janeway in St. John’s. He underwent various tests (ultrasound, CT scan, repeated bloodwork and consultations with many departments). Ultimately, Nate required surgery to remove his appendix, followed by an additional five-day stay for monitoring and IV antibiotic therapy.

“The professionalism, compassion and dedication of all staff at the Janeway, especially during the current pandemic, was outstanding. Knowing such services are available provides much relief and eases our minds. The nurses, physicians, and all staff of the Janeway are angels amongst us and for their care of Nate, we will be eternally grateful.” (Glenda, Nate’s Mom)
