Katies Cottage was the perfect place to stay when our little girl was undergoing surgery. Everything was very clean and comfortable and exactly what we needed during a very stressful week.
Katie Cares, We received a Katie Cares package when our 2 year old was admitted into Carman hospital. He still cuddles the teddy bear at bedtime and the blanket is one of his favourites. May you continue to bring a little sunshine to brighten what can be an overwhelming experience.
Hi, our 4 year little guy had his tonsils out today and was provided with a Katie Cares bag at the Boundary Trails Hospital. What a wonderful gift and thought for all the little ones. Many thanks, to you and your family. I googled Katie Cares my heart goes out to you! Thank you.
My 8 year old daughter had to go to hospital last night because she hasn’t been feeling well. After she was admitted at Boundary Trails Hospital, she was scared and tired and the nurse on duty brought in this wonderful bag full of items labeled Katie Cares. It sure helped the process!! Thank you so much for providing something so small to help make kids feel a little bit better about being in such a scary place.
I do not know Travis’ family nor anyone affiliated with Katie Cares, but I was following Travis’ story in the news and it led me to your organization. Katie seemed like such a generous, wonderful girl. I just lost a friend to cancer, and also have young children so your charity is the perfect place to donate. I am so happy to help out!!
Thank you. The stay was excellent and we are very thankful! This Cottage was a huge support while at Boundary Trails Hospital.
The staff are excellent. I have stayed here numerous times – and I always feel like I am at home.
Had a very pleasant stay for my second time, it was a God-send!
Thank you so much for giving us such a good home away from home!! Highly appreciated
My stay was very peaceful and comfortable. We enjoyed delicious chicken noodle soup and fresh bread. BLESSINGS
Kaitlyn’s initial stay in hospital was 7 weeks. The hospital admissions also consisted of the following: 4 ICU, 2 ambulance trips to Winnipeg, 4 Emergency admissions, plus numerous clinic visits to Children’s Cancer Clinic appointments, as well as year long chemo treatments in hospital.
Kaitlyns Own Statement
“At age 13 I was diagnosed with cancer, I spent 7 weeks in the hospital. Being in hospital opened my eyes to the amount of children fighting cancer without family. I wanted to do all I could to make it better for the other children which gave me the idea to start this charity.”
Located across the street from Boundary Trails Health Centre, Katie’s Cottage allows you to stay close to your loved ones when they need you the most.
