Every day, the staff and physicians at BC Children's Hospital and Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children (BC Children's) and BC Women's Hospital & Health Centre (BC Women's) work closely with their patients and families to provide the best care possible. Most patients, after receiving their necessary treatments, go on with their lives. But unfortunately, despite everyone's best efforts, sometimes a patient doesn't survive.

?The loss of a loved one takes a huge toll on a family. To help families move through their grief journey, BC Children's and BC Women's recently launched a new resource to help families, the BC Children's and BC Women's Memorial Pages.

In an increasingly "wired" world of social media and cyber-community, the BC Children's and BC Women's Memorial Pages provide a safe place for families to post photos, drawings, and text that express and honour cherished memories of their loved one.

This site is open to any family whose deceased loved one received care at BC Children's or BC Women's. If you or anyone you know has lost a loved one at BC Children's or BC Women's, visitwww.bcchildrens.ca/bcchmemorial or www.bcwomens.ca/bcwmemorial to learn more about how to submit a memorial. There is no charge for this service.
