2018 Epilogue Developments-CTI 4th Annual Winter Classic
Published on: February 9, 2018
In Memory of “Odd Socks Ollie”: After failed bone marrow transplants, Ollie moved to Emily’s House children’s hospice in Toronto. During his battle with cancer, Ollie wore odd socks, and broke open “a piñata a day” because that’s what he wanted. He received 24/7 medical care and access to play and recreation therapies. As his mom explains: “When you are in the storm that is the beginning of the end of your child's life, you do whatever you can that gives them even a small amount of joy. We decided to go to Emily’s House because we realized that the best way to ensure that we could give Ollie that comfort, and some measure of happiness, was to allow ourselves to be cared for also.” The impacts of hospice are very personal for every member of a family – as are each moment of care and joy. Emily’s House / PAC (www.emilyshouse.ca) offers compassionate supports for those with a life-limiting illness and their family.
