This year, Elliot will be spending the holidays at home for the first time since he started his treatments. So now there are two trees he’s looking forward to seeing all lit up.
For Giving Tuesday, Carey Price is calling on people across Quebec to do even more to brighten the lives of the children and families who will be spending the holidays in the hospital this year. Two days to make 50,000 lights glow!
The Story of the Sainte-Justine Tree of Lights

On National Philanthropy Day, I am celebrating the hope that lives within you – that lives within all of us. Thank you for helping build the future of our society!

Life took our two little boys away from us. It also robbed me of my innocence and naivety when it came to motherhood. But what I lost there, I gained in awareness of how precious a child’s health is and what a miracle life can be. Our story is both a sad and a happy one. The years we have spent between these walls has made us realize what the most precious things are: life, love and empathy.
