Welcome to my page!

I am taking part in the Make-A-Wish Trailblaze for Wishes event this summer. 

I'm a paediatric hematologist/oncologist looking after kids with cancer and serious blood disorders. I know very clearly what some kids and families go through when fain life-threatening and life-altering diseases. The impact is huge and leaves scars on all family members. For kids who qualify, a Wish can give back joy, let kids forget for a while, provide wonderful memories and infuse hope, not just now but into the future too.

I am a long-time member of the Make-a-Wish Canada team - not only in Nova Scotia, sitting on the Chapter Advisory Board, but also nationally as part of the Medical Advisory Committee helping the Foundation to grant Wishes to children and young people. I know what a Wish can do. 

Make-A-Wish® Trailblaze for Wishes is a 10-week virtual challenge which asks you to Hike, Walk or Run your chosen challenge distance — 50KM, 100KM or 200KM. I’m excited to be take part, get outdoors and raise much needed funds to help children with critical illnesses this summer.

Make-A-Wish wants to bring every eligible child’s wish to life, but right now, thousands of wishes are waiting due to COVID-19.

When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope. 

Will you support me, so that together, we can make sure that when life returns to normal, no child must wait for their already delayed wish?
