Teddy Bear Times Spring 2014

By definition a hero is a person distinguished by courage, noble deeds and outstanding achievements. Ask any parent at CHEO and they will likely say their child’s doctor is their hero. The staff at CHEO hear that all the time. But, ask physicians about whom their heroes are and they will answer they are the children and teenagers because of the bravery CHEO patients display every day.

Teddy Bear Times Spring 2012

For the last four years, We All Win has been the slogan, theme and true spirit behind The Ottawa Hospital and CHEO Lottery. When planning began for the 2012 edition of the lottery, a common observation continued to surface: the slogan had become a popular and familiar term when people discussed the lottery. With this in mind the joint hospital lottery is now called the We All Win Lottery!

Teddy Bear Times Fall 2011

Picture a beautiful young couple, a new home complete with a dog and a baby on the way. Life was picturesque until a routine ultrasound revealed something worrisome. It appeared that the developing fetus had an empty stomach. After weekly ultrasounds and no visual confirmation of a developing stomach, something was definitely wrong. “It was quite a shock,” says mom Renée.
“It’s certainly not how you expect your first pregnancy to unfold.”
