You know, it’s often said that having a child is a life-changing event… Well, imagine the birth of a child with a severe physical and intellectual disability, it is a completely unexpected change. From birth, the child totally depends on his parents for all his daily needs: eat, sleep, dress, move, hygiene care, medication… This is so everyday, 24 hours a day, for their entire lives. Exhaustion, sleep deprivation, difficulty with the brothers and sisters, lack of support… Many words that are not even close to describe the situation lived by the parents of children with disabilities. Fortunately, Centre Philou is there to provide services for these families. In 2019, Centre Philou will take part in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge to help them obtain a better quality of life. Thanks for being part of our team!
