When children are dealing with illness or a hospital stay - they still want to be kids. March is Child Life Awareness month and #CHEO is celebrating its Child Life Specialists whose area of expertise is to help children cope in the face of a medical condition. CTV Ottawa's Katie Griffin explains how play with a purpose works.
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals are asking for you to mark Children's Hospitals Week from March 20th to 27th. It's easy: post a photo wearing a band-aid and tagging it across social media platforms using #ChildrensHospitalsWeek. Patients at #CHEO are getting in on it with their own creative spin! Be sure to take your own photos and share!
