At this time of year, we think of gifts. We think of what to give or even what to get.
Most importantly giving is exciting and gratifying.
But sometimes the best gifts that can be received
are the kind that can’t be wrapped.
The breakthrough of hearing a child speak for the first time
The pride of watching a child take their first steps
The joy that children, their parents and our staff feel when a goal is met
When families are plunged into a world that makes them feel different from the rest, the paediatric experts at Grandview Children’s Centre in Durham Region are there to provide the support and services their children need. Grandview provides connections to other families to help guide them through this unknown territory with experience, compassion and understanding.
“When my son Rudra was born, his hands were on his ears, his knees were on his chest, and his foot was folded over his belly button. He looked like a flower who forgot to bloom”
Monjuri (Mom) and Rudra (Grandview Kid) were quickly welcomed into the Grandview family. Monjuri describes the Grandview therapists as having had even more answers than she had questions. Her mind was quickly at ease. Now five years old, Rudra is learning to walk on his own and Grandview has been a huge part of his achievements. It was here he took his first steps, and from here he will head toward an independent future, living a life without limitations.
Rudra is blooming now, thanks to the staff and support systems at Grandview Children’s Centre.
Your gift could help a child like Rudra achieve a personal milestone, say their first word, take their first step or become a Grandview client for the first time.
When shopping this holiday season, please keep Grandview Kids in mind. There may be people on your list who would truly appreciate having a donation to Grandview made in their honour. This is a perfect option for people who “have everything” or whose lives have been impacted by a child with physical, communication or developmental needs.
“With Grandview we see that Rudra has a life, he has a future. He’s standing up on his own and he will not always need me because he is independent now, and it would not have been possible without Grandview.”
Your gift will make a difference!
An incredibly generous friend of Grandview has agreed to match, dollar-for-dollar, your gift to a maximum of $25,000.
