New York Times Best-Selling Author
and CHEO Grandparent & Supporter
Dear Parents, Grandparents and CHEO Supporters,
My name is Peggy McColl, and I'm a grandparent of my most awesome grandson: James.
About 1 year ago, James enjoyed a very normal fun day in his life. That same evening, his parents rushed him to CHEO after he suddenly suffered from uncontrollable full-body seizures with no apparent cause.
He was at CHEO on life support and in a coma for 3 days - the absolute worst days of all of our lives.
Thanks to CHEO's quick response, caring and knowledgeable staff and technology, they saved James' life and he has enjoyed this past year as if nothing had ever happened.
For our family, however, nothing has ever been the same. We value and cherish every moment, more than ever before, and we want to leverage this experience by helping CHEO be prepared for other families when situations such as the one with James arise.
In order to provide other children with the same level of care James and our family received, CHEO needs to upgrade equipment, purchase additional equipment, and expand their facility.
Will you join us by spreading the word and donating any amount you can? Whether $5 or $50,000, YOU will make a lasting difference in someone's life.
With warmth and love,
Grandpa Denis, Grandma Peggy, Mom Kayla, Son James & Dad Michel
CHEO touches the lives of over 500,000 patients and families each year.
You help provide them with the best care and support.

in honor of the
CHEO Foundation Grandparents Day
Raise funds to buy an EEG Machine for CHEO!
Upgrade & Add New Technology
CHEO will use the funds raised to upgrade its Electroencephalography (EEG) systems, among other equipment, in its CHEO Neurology department.
Respond Even Faster To Emergencies
CHEO will be able to diagnose problems even earlier, to give children the best chance to resolve issues and continue living a happy, healthy life.
The more & better equipment on-hand, the better care CHEO can provide.
Restore & Increase Quality of Life
When a life-threatening incident occurs, and ideally before such an incident, it is important to diagnose and treat our children so they can enjoy the highest quality of life possible.
Help Us Make Achieve This Goal & Care For Our CHEO Children!
Spread the word and invite your family, friends and colleagues to participate!
