Welcome to the Children's Trust Fund
The Children's Trust Fund is a registered charity operated by NewCap Broadcasting through its Halifax Radio Stations Q104 & 96.5 KOOL FM. The mission of the charity is to provide financial assistance to children and their families who find themselves in critical need due to a medical condition or other unfortunate circumstances. The Children’s Trust Fund assists children up to the age of 18.
Categories of need are defined as any financial requirement stemming from a medical treatment recommended by a physician or therapist, including expenses for medicines not covered by MSI, remedial apparatus, therapy and travel to obtain treatment, quality of life needs relating to proper development, assistive technology as required, and funds required for clinical development education. In many cases, a relatively small amount of money can have a very significant effect.
For example - some recent gifts include:
Ken B., $125 for a neck brace.
Kaitlyn H., $600 for medication.
Sara K., $1,135 for hearing aids.
Jessica D., $106 for a Medic-Alert Bracelet
Brandon M,. $200 for specialized therapy.
Connor G., $968 for a mobile tilt wedge seat kit.
Braedon L., $190 for medication.
Drew M., $203 for partial funding of an oxygen saturation monitor.
Recently The Children's trust Fund helped purchase a Rifton walker for my son Darcy Lucas. I wanted to share a picture of Darcy showing off his new walker at school. This walker is going to make such a difference in Darcy "social" life as now he can play sports and stuff with all the other kids. Yesterday he came home from school so excited to tell me " mommy I was running so fast today even Mr. McDuff couldn't catch me".
Darcy absolutely loves his new walker and can't wait to try out different things with it.Darcy , Destiny ( Darcy's twin sister ) and myself would like to send a huge THANK YOU for makinga difference in our lives, much thanks :0)
