It is with a heavy sadness that I post this. We have decided to put off the opening of the Memorial Garden until spring 2022. With the severity of the fourth wave of the pandemic, we do not want anything, illness or politics, to take away from the true meaning of the Garden. We would like to have a large NKF family opening where all are invited and we are required to have limited measures in place. I thank you in advance for your understand in these already tough times.

Hi NKF Family, Hope you are staying safe and well during these crazy times.
I am so happy to announce the nearing completion of the Neurosurgery Kids Memorial Garden at the Devonian Gardens. This project has been a 10 year labor of love and partnership between the NKF, Smart Tax, Hammer and Forge, the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation, and the University of Alberta. We are hoping to have an opening for the garden on October 2 at the Devonian Gardens, but I am just working to confirm the date and details.
Many of you have been contacted by us to see if you would like your child's name placed on the garden sculpture in memory of an amazing soul, taken form us way too soon. We have a list of those names that we have collected for over 10 years. With that being said, due to the duration of the project, we are trying to confirm in as many ways as possible that we have not missed any child's name that as been put forth to be added to the wall. If you would like to confirm your child's name will be added to the garden, please email Lori Gnenz at email@example.com. If for some reason your child's name is not on the sculpture, or you have not decided if you would like to add it, there will always be opportunities for it to be added after.
It's International Childhood Cancer Day, and Cecily is starting a 6 week fundraising goal to raise funds for the Kids with Cancer Society.
Cecily turns 8 years old on March 27th, and it is her birthday wish to donate toys and a financial contribution to the Kids with Cancer Society who have blessed her so much on her own journey, in Edmonton, Alberta this year. So along side her big donation of Blessing Babies to the Stollery Hospital (once COVID allows!), and a financial donation to the Neurosurgery Kids Fund, we have big dreams to help the KWCS!
Cecily (7) handmade these two Blessing Babies, one representing her (pink) and one representing her best friend and little sister Norah (purple). She is offering them in Silent Auction/highest offer with 100% of the proceeds going to Cecily's Birthday Wish to the KWCS donation. If you are interested in putting an offer in for one or both of these babies, please send us a message! Highest offer will be notified in the next couple of days and will be the beginning of Cecily's dream goals!
This is amazing Cecily! You are such a kind young lady!
Can I buy a blessing baby somewhere?
You did an amazing job creating these two little babies! You are such a sweet, kind, caring little girl! I’ll bet someone scoops them up fast! Maddy and I will soon be shipping you some babies you can add into your donation! ❤️❤️
