Canuck Place offers specialized pediatric palliative care to over 350 children with life threatening illnesses and their families across BC. The demand continues to rise. Internal estimates suggest that only approximately 20% of the children and families that need the program currently have access. Your help is needed to reach those children.

Canuck Place relies on the generosity of individuals, corporations and organizations to provide its program at no cost to BC families.

Families, volunteers, and those who have been involved with or touched by Canuck Place will be sharing their stories on air with the following stations throughout the day: QMFM (103.5), The Beat (94.5), The Team 1040am, and Talk 1410am.

You can donate online to the Canuck Place Children’s Hospice in many creative ways; by purchasing an e-card greeting, branded merchandise or other Precious Gifts.

Canuck Place is also making it easy to give this holiday season with their Precious Pages that you can setup and customize (upload a photo, a personal message) and send the link around to friends and family. They can donate to the cause in your honor this season in lieu of a gift under the tree.

    I listened to Talk Radio 1410 all day, and the stories were heartwarming. The Canuck Place Childrens Hospice is an incredible place for families, and I hope the day was a great success. Kudos to all the radio stations for doing this every year.
