Canuck Place Children’s Hospice / Annual Report 2020-21


“Having children is something that brings joy, love, and excitement in one’s life, however, no one is prepared to lose a child. Any family can be struck with an unknown genetic disease or some unfortunate accident, irrespective of socioeconomic status or background. We are forever grateful for the loving care that Canuck Place provided baby Charles and their incredible support for our family.” - Canuck Place mother, Mireille Larosa

Message from our

You give short lives the gift of great days. This past year has been the most challenging environment we have ever faced and the phrase ‘thank you’ does not seem big enough to express our deep appreciation to our community for their support during COVID-19. We heard the heartfelt car horns outside our hospices, saw the hand-written signs and cards, and we gratefully received the gifts of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and critical funds. Because of you, care continued for children and families. In the face of these extraordinary circumstances, our team adeptly embraced new pandemic protocols and innovative and future-forward practices to meet the needs of children and families. • • • •

Our COVID-19 team implemented health measures to reflect a safe environment and in 2020-21, there were 2,042 patient bed days and 1,550 family members for overnight medical respite. Canuck Place increased in-home patient care by 31% and almost doubled recreation therapy sessions for children and families in urban and remote areas across BC & Yukon. Our counsellors increased sessions by 56% in response to the mental health and wellness of children and families during the COVID-19 pandemic. We continued to share our research and knowledge in pediatric palliative care, presenting over 49 sessions to provincial, national, and international audiences.

Caring for children and their families will always be at the heart of the mission of Canuck Place. The needs of patients and families are evolving as they face magnified uncertainty. Canuck Place will be there at the right time, with unique care in the right place. Your support will bring more in-home care, more virtual health supports, and expanded provincial care. At this time of crisis, we thank you. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us that our world is both more connected and more fragile than ever before. The opportunity is in how we re-imagine the world we once knew, take stock of what is most important, and focus on the need to support children and families. With gratitude,

Dr. Tarnia Taverner, CEO

“Canuck Place allowed baby Charles to live the best life he could. They always sought ways to increase his comfort, and improve the effectiveness of his treatments. The day Charles passed away, his brother William had an excursion to a farm with Canuck Place recreation therapists, and brought back a sunflower for him. To this day, sunflowers have a special meaning for our family.” - Canuck Place father, Martin Archambault

Message from our

At Canuck Place, our goal is to optimize living for infants, children, and youth aged 0-19 years and their families. Since 2015 we have seen a 34% increase of children and families requiring Pediatric Palliative Care (PPC) and a 94% increase in outpatient care. Canuck Place engages an inter-disciplinary approach to meet families where they are even as they face unimaginable challenges. Our team is here to support them in discerning what matters most. A child with a life-threatening illness is on our program for an average of seven years. The mission at Canuck Place is that these children receive holistic care that celebrates their values, their lives — whether those lives are measured in hours, days, weeks, or years. We are partners, with you, in making the most of the time that is left for a child. Together, we empower children and families to make important choices: A choice for care focused on comfort, the relief of suffering and symptoms, and quality of life A choice for the place of end-of-life And a choice for emotional, social, and bereavement support When we faced a world crisis – our team expertly shifted; preparing for worst-case scenarios, training staff, communicating with families, and accessing much-needed PPE. Life-threatening illnesses don’t stop during a pandemic, nor do the needs of families. Canuck Place staff continued to provide around-the-clock care, ensuring the care needs of children and their families, who were now often more isolated and alone than ever, were met. Virtual care has been foundational for many years at Canuck Place as it assists us in being able to deliver care to families at home, and no matter where they live in our vast province. Our team members further leveraged that expertise and integrated virtual care across all aspects of our program: recreation and music therapy, online school, counselling and bereavement support, and clinical care. Our team mantra in 2020-21 was ‘Continue Care’. Even with reduced patient beds, children and families received end-of-life care, pain and symptom management, and medical respite when they needed it, where they needed it. At Canuck Place, we are in the service of human beings. We value relationships with our patients and families and we view this relationship as a powerful instrument of healing in the face of suffering and uncertainty. Thank you for your support as we strive to reach every family caring for a child with a life-threatening illness who needs help – so no one walks this journey alone. We are grateful that you are champions for care of children and families and creating lasting memories filled with joy – so no moment is missed.

“In the early weeks of COVID-19 when the pandemic was declared, my work ramped up significantly as the leader of the nursing team in Vancouver. The information and directions coming from the Provincial Health Officer and the Ministry of Health were ever changing and keeping up with all the recommendations and directives was challenging. We quickly implemented practice changes at both hospices to keep children, families, and staff safe and healthy. As essential workers, I worried about the team coming into work and then going home to their own families. Thanks to the supply of PPE already on hand and generous donations, I am thankful we were well prepared with PPE. It was important to us that the nursing team felt safe coming to work.” - Brenda Dewar, Clinical Nurse Manager 05 / 06

Pain & Symptom Management

End-of-Life Care

Grief, Loss, & Bereavement Counselling

Children with life-threatening illnesses and their families need a break from 24-hour care. Canuck Place medical respite care provides rest and renewal for the whole family with a safe, loving environment from two provincial locations in Vancouver and Abbotsford. Canuck Place children receive the complex medical attention they need from nurses and physicians on the clinical floor with their families close by in comfortable family suites. Counselling, care plans, education and art, music, play, and recreation therapy is provided with each stay. Canuck Place is here with compassion when a child requires end-of-life care with a loving environment in-hospice or within the comforts of a child’s home. This experience is supported with the utmost sensitivity including clinical, emotional, as well as spiritual care and guidance. Canuck Place families have the full support of the Canuck Place clinical team during this heart-wrenching experience. This care is complemented with access to Canuck Place counselling before and after a child has passed as the family’s journey continues.

Complex diseases require dynamic, expert clinical care to manage ever-changing symptoms. Children deserve to be free from pain and discomfort, which is why Canuck Place pain and symptom management is integral to the specialized care we provide. Pain and symptom management is offered to Canuck Place children in-hospice and also in-home by the Canuck Place clinical team. This highly complex care focuses on the needs of the child and is critical in improving their quality of life. Grief begins at diagnosis which is why grief, loss, and bereavement counselling are offered to Canuck Place families the moment they join the program. Canuck Place counsellors support families as they navigate through their grief by addressing the emotional, spiritual, and psychosocial needs of parents, siblings, and grandparents. This specialized care is delivered as individual and group counselling sessions, as well as art, play, music, and recreation therapy before and for years after a child has passed.

Canuck Place is:

e made where memories ar “We were home with Colten when his breathing became more laboured and his oxygen saturation started to decline. I called the Canuck Place 24-hour clinical care line and spoke with a nurse. Just one of the many invaluable lifelines that Canuck Place offers to families like ours. She recommended that we go to emergency. We were admitted later that night and less than 24 hours later Colten passed away in my arms. “The amazing team at Canuck Place remembered our wishes and arranged for us to take Colten’s body to the hospice and stay the evening there. “They placed him in a cuddle cot so we could spend the night with him and so that memory making could take place with the Canuck Place recreation therapists. Canuck Place counsellor Deb came to our room late in the evening to help us all navigate the emotions we were feeling and what we would possibly do next. “Our family was able to spend one more precious evening with our baby in that beautiful house, we were so grateful.” - Canuck Place mother, Chelsea Ruf

Canuck Place is:

lived to e r a s e v li t r o sh e r whe the fullest

“Canuck Place is palliative care in its purest form, there is space for everyone. The child that lives within the walls for medical respite, the children that pass away after long battles, and the child that is gone only hours after arriving. When you enter the doors of Canuck Place as a parent with a living child, it can feel terrifying. The mere fact that you are there, means the end is coming. That’s a terribly difficult sentence, but it holds a lot of truth. A family receiving care at Canuck Place is there to learn about, and tend to, the letting go of their child. “Could there be anything more important than changing the way a family can let go of their child, or how that child is cared for at their absolute sickest? “When you arrive at Canuck Place, it’s for the worst possible reason in the world. But when you stay, it writes a completely different ending to the story of your child’s last days.” - Canuck Place mother, Katie Jameson

Report from Finance & Audit Committee It is my pleasure to present the 2020-21 report from the Finance & Audit Committee for Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. This has been a unique year operating through a global pandemic. There have been many challenges but also opportunities. The CPCH senior leadership and the Board of Directors have remained committed to fiscal responsibility through the pandemic. We revised budgets and modified our operational plans to ensure our operations remained whole. We adapted to new restrictions, safety protocols, and a significant portion of our staff suddenly working from home. Through the incredible dedication of all of the staff of Canuck Place, we have successfully modified our operations to allow us to continue providing care to children and families in-hospice and in the community with a significant increase to virtual care. This fiscal reports very strong financial results with a $3,149,095 surplus. This is due to the very generous support of our donors and government partners. With your support, we were able to surpass our goals for this year. We are extremely grateful to our donors for providing this much-needed funding in a very challenging economic year. This support, along with the annual funding received from the Province of British Columbia, the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy program, and careful management of our operating budgets, allowed us to continue providing services to children and families. The year ended on a high point with a one-time $3.5 million grant received from the Provincial Health Services Authority. This generous funding will support much-needed equipment, infrastructure and technology upgrades of Canuck Place. Looking ahead, we cannot predict with certainty how the pandemic will continue to affect us. However, Canuck Place remains committed to providing excellent care and services to the growing number of children and families across BC who need them. We will take the learnings from the past year and incorporate them into our strategic planning for the coming years. The strong results of the year and our commitment to continue working with the Province of BC, our donors and welcoming new partners will build a sustainable future for Canuck Place.

Canuck Place Children’s Hospice Foundation Canuck Place Children’s Hospice Foundation was established to receive bequests, legacies, donations, property and to hold and safeguard those funds in support of the activities of Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. The Foundation makes financial contributions to Canuck Place to support direct clinical program activities, emerging matters and to support the on-going financial stability of Canuck Place. This fiscal reports very strong financial results with a $2,282,282 surplus. This is due to the incredible support of our donors and the launch of our first 50/50 raffle. The investment portfolio had a strong recovery after seeing a decline in market value at last year-end. The strong results for the year have allowed the Foundation to increase support to the Hospice in this challenging year of COVID-19. The net assets of the Foundation continue to be very healthy at year-end and will enable the Foundation to continue to provide support to CPCH annually. The Foundation’s financial statements are unaudited and not consolidated with CPCH.

“I have often said that one of the hardest parts of having a terminally ill child is having the knowledge of that diagnosis and then continuing to live day after day, trying not to let it suffocate you. I don’t know what we would do without Canuck Place. They have helped us make some of the most amazing memories over the years as a family, all while helping our 10-year-old son Heston maintain the best quality of life he could possibly have.” - Canuck Place mother, Kerena Letcher

Canuck Place

Signature Gift of Time The 16th annual Gift of Time Gala presented by Nicola Wealth welcomed hundreds of guests virtually from across British Columbia and beyond on Saturday, September 26th and raised over $750,000 to support Canuck Place care. Global BC’s Chris Gailus co-hosted the memorable, hour-long show, alongside Riaz Meghji and Thailey Roberge. Gala co-chairs Emily Lazare and Jill Donaldson embraced the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, leading a passionate and dedicated gala committee to transform the gala into an engaging virtual event where, for the first time, guests were able to attend from 38 communities across North America. Canuck Place mother, Katie Jameson, shared the story of her son, Lochlan, who passed away at Canuck Place at just 22 days old. “The way we remember this house is with a re-birth, a second chance at saying goodbye, one where we saw his hair touch sunlight and move in the breeze. A goodbye far different than the one written for us in the NICU, a goodbye surrounded by family, tears, and laughter. We remember the way we were encouraged to celebrate Lochlan’s life, not just prepare for his death,” said Katie. Because of you, we raised $752,609.69!

Hundreds of guests from across British Columbia and beyond gathered virtually for the 7th annual Gift of Love Gala presented by MNP on Saturday, February 27th. Gala co-chairs Aprille Ferrario, Marcie Cyr, and Suzanne Adams led a passionate and dedicated committee to develop an inspiring virtual event that raised over $377,000. Media personality and author Riaz Meghji and young actor Thailey Roberge hosted the show, which featured performances by the MEI Screaming Eagles Marching Band, Pacific Mennonite Children’s Choir, and singer/songwriter, Kassandra Clack. Vancouver Canucks alumni Henrik and Daniel Sedin, Brendan Morrison, and Trevor Linden shared messages of gratitude, recalling their own special connections to the children and families at Canuck Place. In a heartfelt speech, Canuck Place mother Chelsea Ruf shared the story of her son, Colten, who passed away at just four months old. “When your child dies, people fear that if they talk about them it will make you sad so they avoid it. The truth is we are already sad, saying his name and the opportunity to talk about our Colten reaffirms that he mattered and won’t be forgotten,” said Chelsea. Because of you, we raised $377,073.45!

one fateful day in the 1950s when the Victoria Cougars sold game tickets to kids for five cents, and she’s been a dedicated fan ever since. A historian, Helen even combined her passion for heritage and her encyclopedic knowledge of hockey to publish a comprehensive history of professional hockey in her hometown of Victoria, a love letter to her sport and to her community. And it’s this love for her community that has led Helen to donate to our hospices since 1995, supporting pediatric palliative care in BC months before we opened the doors to care for our first Canuck Place child and family. As a mother of four children, one with severe allergies, Helen gives monthly and has pledged a gift to Canuck Place in her Will to ensure that future families continue to get the care and support they need during unimaginably difficult times. “I know how I felt when my son stopped breathing after ingesting an allergen. I can only imagine how parents feel when they lose a precious child,” said Helen. Thank you, Helen, for years of dedication and support for Canuck Place care.

Always a winner when you give back

Connie knew that buying a ticket for the inaugural Canuck Place 50/50 was a wonderful way to give back. The former Canuck Place volunteer received half of the $325,660 jackpot, with the other half going to support Canuck Place. “The love, understanding, compassion, and great medical care at Canuck Place is incredible to watch and be part of,” said Connie. “When you’re buying a ticket to support the next Canuck Place 50/50 raffle, remember that even if you don’t win a prize, you’ve still won because you’re supporting a charitable organization, and you’ve done something good for somebody else.” 23 / 24

Avid cyclist rides to honour his son

Jasper and Stephan Mohan

Stephen Mohan had plans to tackle the Tour Divide, a 4,400km bike race from Banff, AB to the USA/Mexico border. The Canuck Place father and cancer survivor intended to do the ride on June 12, 2020, to honour his son Jasper and raise funds for Canuck Place. Jasper spent his final moments in this world at Canuck Place, in a peaceful environment surrounded by love. Unfortunately, due to the impact of COVID-19, the 2020 Tour Divide was cancelled. However, Stephen was determined to find another way to raise money and celebrate the life of his incredible son. Together we launched the virtual edition of the Tour Divide. We looked to the community to help Stephen complete the 4,400km, collectively, in and around their neighbourhoods. We asked people to jump on their bikes, track their kilometres, and donate a minimum of $1.00 per km biked. In four short weeks this community, inspired by Stephen’s story, rode 5,600km and raised $15,386! 27 / 28

Virtual hockey tournament gives back

2021 would have marked the third annual BFL Canada Charles Archambault Memorial Hockey Tournament. A tournament that began as a way to honour their BFL colleagues and bereaved parents Martin Archambault and Mireille Larosa whose infant son Charles spent his final days at Canuck Place. COVID-19 made it impossible to continue with the original tournament but the team at BFL Canada was determined to continue to support Canuck Place families. They shifted to an online fundraiser where they encouraged their strategic business partners and BFL Canada employees to donate to Canuck Place. BFL Canada put forward a $20,000 match to encourage generosity among their partners. BFL Canada raised an incredible $57,895—the most they have ever raised as an organization!

Tim Hortons brings a smile to Canuck Place All 17 Tim Hortons locations in Abbotsford took part in the iconic Smile Cookie Week in September 2020, with restaurant owners donating $1 from every freshly baked chocolate chunk Smile Cookie purchased. “All of the Abbotsford Tim Hortons local owners live in the area and all are parents; when the opportunity came up to be able to support Canuck Place care for local families going through difficult times, it was a unanimous decision,” said Abbotsford Tim Hortons owner, Jocelyn Tomlinson. “Our 17 restaurant team members, and owners in Abbotsford were excited to work with Canuck Place to raise as much as possible to support the critical care they provide to children and families.”

Giving back is all in the family

Dr. Darren and Emily Lazare

The Lazare family are an inspiring example of how families come together to support Canuck Place. Dr. Darren and Emily Lazare and their children Ava, Lennon, Henry, and Chloe have all supported Canuck Place through fundraising and volunteering. Emily has been on the Gift of Time committee since 2013 and served as co-chair from 2015-2017, then again in 2020. She has introduced Canuck Place to countless connections and supporters and provided strong leadership and support to the committee throughout her tenure. The Lazare children took part in the family-friendly Adventure Race for a number of years, each raising money to support Canuck Place care. We are so grateful to the Lazare family for their generous support and for instilling philanthropic values for future generations! 31 / 32

Case family makes a difference

Jim and Lauire Case

Jim and Laurie Case are innovative in their approach to giving – always looking for ways to bring new connections and opportunities forward to maximize their impact on Canuck Place. Jim joined the Gift of Time Committee in 2010 with a goal of developing a highend wine category for our silent auction, later pulling together an influential wine committee and introducing Canuck Place to Marquis Wine Cellars. Jim and Laurie also were the driving force behind one of Gift of Time’s most successful Live Auction items, an exclusive trip to Napa Valley on a private jet, which raised $175,000 over four years. In 2020, Jim and Laurie recognized the great need to support Canuck Place during the pandemic and became one of five donors who came forward to provide a $160,000 match for Gift of Time’s Fund-a-Need initiative. Thank you Jim and Laurie for your commitment and outstanding support. 33 / 34

Canuck Place mother, Cherie and Canuck Place child, Charlie-Anne

Canuck Place Children’s Hospice / Annual Report 2020-21


Canuck Place parents live in uncertainty “I have a 10-year-old daughter named Charlie-Anne who was diagnosed with SMA type 1 (like ALS) and given ‘a few months’ to live at 6 months of age. What would the usual cause of death be? The common cold. “For 10 years we have lived in COVID-19 mode. We bought out all the hand santizer and Lysol wipes way before it was cool. “Like a lot of people, I’m reading/hearing about now, sometimes we just HAD to let our guard down, and take ‘risks’. It really sucks when play dates, school and public library outings are considered risks. “We had to weigh the risks - is it worth it? Is it important to her? Is keeping her from the opportunity more detrimental than letting her experience some normalcy? I had to trust my gut and my heart and hope it wasn’t steering me wrong. “So, she went to school sometimes, to the library, sometimes, and had play dates, sometimes. We’ve even taken her to Disneyland twice. “But sometimes she got sick, really sick. Charlie has been hospitalized many times. And she’s almost been taken from us many times. I punished myself for relaxing too much. I prayed to God to not take her. I promised I would be more diligent in her care and to never expose her again. “And then, miraculously, she’d get better. And she’d come home again. And my brain and heart would recover. It buried the hospital stays. It erased details. And then she’d pine for normalcy and I would give it to her in small doses. “Sometimes an hour into my sleep I’d sit up in a panic, “I forgot to wash her hands after she touched that toy the other kid touched!” And then I would wait in fear for 3 days for the symptoms to present themselves. “I still do all of the above, daily. This has been our life for 11 years. I have PTSD from all of the close calls and I’ve learned I’ll never do the right thing 100% of the time and there will always be fear and guilt. “So instead, I look to her to help me make a lot of the difficult decisions. I want to protect her AND give her a great life and see her happy. I’m afraid of what that could mean and will always repent my sins of taking too many risks each and every time she is hospitalized. But I am doing the best I can do, and you will too. And your kiddos love you for it. I’m sorry this is everyone’s new normal, and fortunately/unfortunately, you’ll get great at it.” - Canuck Place mother, Cherie 45 / 46
