Throughout the eight-hour telecast, viewers will see their donor dollars in action as 7-year-old Baillie takes them to one of her physiotherapy sessions paid for by Variety. Her physio sessions along with her custom orthotics will help Baillie stay as active as possible as she battles Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, a form of Muscular Dystrophy.
They will also see how 4-year-old Patrick who struggles with Speech Apraxia and Goldenhar Syndrome is progressing with his weekly speech and language sessions. Additionally, they’ll witness Abby getting her first walker which will help strengthen her muscles and give her a sense of independence that the 2-year-old has never experienced.
From mental wellness or mobility program grants, to specialized therapies, education programs, and lifesaving medical equipment and supplies, Variety helps BC kids. There are the iconic Sunshine Coach vans, and vital the Surrey Memorial NICU, just to name a few ways Variety is there for BC families, time and time again.
