The Sing Out for CHEO! event will raise money for the CHEO Foundation for family-centered children patient care facilities situated in Ottawa. Over the past 40 years, CHEO has established itself as a world-class centre providing leading-edge treatment care for children and youth.
The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) is one of the outstanding family-centered children patient care facilities situated in Ottawa. Over the past 40 years, CHEO has established itself as a world-class centre providing leading-edge treatment care for children and youth.
Danny Sylvestre, the CHEO Ambassador for this event, had his life dramatically altered when his daughter was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy by the doctors at CHEO. Until that point in her life, he had been told that she was “slow to physically develop” and that “she would learn like other children”.
Knowing something is wrong with your child is heartbreaking, especially when you can’t find someone to listen.
Without the care and support provided by CHEO to both his daughter, and to himself as a young parent, both of their lives could have been negatively affected. Through the surgeries, the therapies and the countless late night visits, the specialists at CHEO patiently carried them through every kind of healing process.
Today, she is vibrant testimony to just some of the vital services that CHEO provides.
And, ongoing research at CHEO will someday provide tomorrow’s families with even greater results.
On Saturday, October 21st, 2017, Danny is giving back to CHEO in the greatest way that he can.
Danny in partnership with Tim Tierney, Ottawa Councillor, and with the help of many volunteers, is organizing a fundraising event for CHEO. The event is called “Sing Out for CHEO!”. It will take place at TD Place in Ottawa, Ontario, from 7pm to midnight.
