We just couldn’t move on to the adult hospital and leave our CHEO family without thanking you and making sure you know how much we appreciate everything you and your team did for Aidan and us these past 7 years.
There were many long, hard nights and roller coaster days on the 5th floor. You kept us moving forward one step at a time and helped us through our worst nightmare a parent could ever imagine.
Thank you for always making us feel that Aidan was your priority. For giving it to us straight and helping us understand and deal with what lay ahead for our son. You gave us our son back and we can never express our gratitude for all you have done for our family these past 7 years. I have included Aidan’s graduation picture in this note. I hope that when you come upon another hard case, you will see what amazing work you do for patients and understand the difference you make in their lives. Aidan is graduating high school and moving on to St-Lawrence college next year for firefighting. He did it! But not without all of you at CHEO having his best interest and giving him confidence to move forward. Thank you for 7 amazing years.”
