Infants and Children on Critical Care Unit at Hospital for Sick Kids, Toronto
at 0-17 years old
We welcome this chance to highlight the bravery of children and families with whom we have shared this passage…These items are representative of care, compassion and our passion for the peaceful closure at the battle's end…They also represent to us the love of the community through the charitable donations that are tenderly knitted. These are often the last things a child wears before they die and are what they wear when we place them in their parents' arms for the last time... All of these pieces have significant meaning in the lives of the children at Sick Kids... The children who have lost a life here are never forgotten. The love that we have for them can be felt in the walls of the hospital and in the smiles of the staff... We felt that contributing mementos of our precious little ones would be an excellent way to honour their memory and brave battles.
