The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario and CTV Ottawa present “CHEO Needs You,” a special television show that will tell the stories of three CHEO patients. Viewers will meet 12 year old Jakob Bouse and see how the staff at CHEO are caring for the debilitating tumor in his brain. The show also features seven year old Noah Williams who has an undiagnosed condition and looks into the work being done at the CHEO Research Institute to identify and find cures for Noah and the estimated 7,000 rare diseases worldwide. The show will also take you into the operating room as CHEO cardiac surgeon, Dr. Gyaandeo Maharajh repairs the heart of 15 month old Zoey Ward.

These three families have agreed to share their touching stories in support of CHEO and all donations made by phone or on-line during the show will be matched by Celebrity Chrysler up to $5,000.
