Please support Emily’s House, Toronto’s first children’s hospice, and the Philip Aziz Centre for Hospice Care for all ages in the community.

One family’s story: “We tried caring for Mark* at home for the little time he had left but soon realized the complexity of his needs was overwhelming, even with 24/7 nursing care. Our house was no longer a home. Emily’s House became our haven, a sanctuary, where we could be parents once again and Mark’s brothers could be his brothers. Emily’s House helped us to create wonderful memories while Mark was alive. … Memories that never would have been possible had Mark been in a hospital or at home.” ~ an Emily’s House mom
