“There is no place on Earth that feels as comforting as SickKids. It is a place we are accepted and loved and there is something pretty magical about that.” – Heather Hamilton
In 2007, Heather gave birth to twin boys Zack and Jayden. Her first born son Ty was excited to have two new siblings. However, something was not quite right with Zack and he was transferred to the SickKids Critical Care Unit right away. He required resuscitation twice upon arrival.
Zack was constantly at risk for pneumonia and frequently came to SickKids. In February 2011, he was placed on life support. A few weeks later, on March 10, Heather and her husband Paul lost their son. Ty and Jayden lost their brother.
For the Hamilton family, SickKids will always hold a special place in their hearts. Heather is here today to share their story on the Newstalk 1010 SickKids Radiothon. Please donate by visiting www.sickkidsradiothon.com or calling 1-877-798-5437.
