This is Declan.

Declan’s Beaded Journey was celebrated with a feature video from our sponsor with Global Edmonton. Your donations make a huge impact on children and their families.

When children are diagnosed with cancer, they receive a piece of leather twine and beads that spell out their first name.

As they go through their treatment, a colourful bead is added to mark each part of their journey, including surgeries, diagnostic procedures, blood transfusions and special events. This is a stunning visual of the treatment protocol for any child’s journey.  Some beaded journeys measure as much as 34 feet in length!

The Beaded Journey Gala event focuses on children’s experiences. Guests receive a rare opportunity to make children’s dreams come true by participating in a unique dream experience live auction. Global Edmonton proudly supports the Kids with Cancer Society by creating special video stories, like Declan’s, and by donating a “Dream to Be A Global News Reporter Experience” for 4 children. We are pleased to say that this Dream Experience was auctioned twice last year! Thank you to Global and the generosity of Frank and Agnes Lovsin and Victory Homes for enabling children to become a Global Reporter for a Day.

We are so grateful to have had the KWC by our side through this entire journey both emotionally and financially. They truly know how to give families hope and strength.
