Your gift makes a lasting difference in the lives of Canuck Place children, like Lumina, with life-threatening illnesses and the families who love them.
Lumina Cunningham was born with a genetic disorder that affects the development of muscles, brain, and eyes. She requires 24-hour care, a feeding tube, and has frequent seizures.
The diagnosis was overwhelming for the family, but Canuck Place was there to guide them, providing expert care for Lumina and resources for the whole family, including counselling and recreation therapy.
“The message was, let’s cherish this little beautiful baby,” says dad, Dwayne. “This is a very hard situation. But it’s a beautiful one. I like to say ‘It’s not normal, but it is perfect, because she is perfect.'”
