My Message

I need your help to make a special wish of mine wish come true. My name is Jacob, I'm 13 and I have lived with severe Crohn's Disease for 5 years. In this short time I have been through multiple colonoscopies & gastroscopies, had my colon removed and donated to research for Inflammatory Bowel Disease, and been through so many combinations of treatments, it's a full time job to keep them straight.

Many of my treatments at The Hospital for Sick Children have been done on Unit 4C, the medical short-stay treatment unit. My goal, that I'm hoping you will support me to achieve, is to raise funds to revitalize the space and make it more appealing for the patients and families who spend their time there. Despite the growing needs to accomodate more families for these day-long treatments, this area of the hospital has remained under-funded. Until now. 

Updating this space is crucial to the children receiving treatment on 4C, who may be here for up to 8 hours at a time. Children benefit from having a variety of methods that appeal to them as a way of distracting themselves from their illness and treatments. When the environment is uplifting and interactive, it strengthens coping skills and promotes healing. Child-friendly treatment rooms promote positive outcomes. Jacob's Healing Rooms Project proposes to raise funds to refresh this space to provide an atmosphere even more conducive to healing. We are currently looking to raise funds to install mounted tablets for each individual treatment chair. This initial start will provide a source of entertainment that each child can use at any time. We are also looking at the possibility of updating the physical space with fresh paint and sensory equipment. Please help me fulfill my wish to make child-friendly treatment rooms a reality!
