Logan was born on Nov 26th, 2008 at the Queensway Hospital. It was a complicated birth where Logan was struggling as he had a collapsed lung (pneumothorax) .
He was taken to the CHEO in a specialized incubator and remained at CHEO Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for 9 days. The Doctors and Nurses were amazing, we felt indebted to their high levels of Professionalism and care.
We vowed that on the day that we were able to take Logan home that we would find a way to return their kindness and care that they had for our son.
Since Logan was 1 we have had a Birthday Party at our house, in lieu of gifts friends and family donated to the CHEO NICU. Since then we have raised over $35,000. Last year we raised over $7,000. It has been a great success thanks to everyone. There is live entertainment, food and a lot of fun.
Logan's goal is to raise enough money to purchase the latest state of the art incubator as incubators are always in need at the NICU. Logan is half way there.
On November 24th at 2 pm we have a Ball Hockey game. At 4 pm we have a face painter, magician and balloon twister, with the theme being Harry Potter...fitting for CHEO...where the magic begins.
Logan has been on the CHEO telethon for the past 4 years and this year he was the youngest recipient for the ORDER of the GOOD BEAR, an award presented by CHEO.
Logan is a healthy soon to be 10 yr old boy thanks to the great staff at CHEO NICU, there isn’t anything that holds him back, we are very lucky and we want to make sure every parent gets the chance that we did......to bring home a healthy baby.
We welcome you to partake in Logan's 10th Birthday CHEO Fundraiser for the NICU.
Please come celebrate, have some food/drinks, laughs and meet our family and friends.
