Why Chai Lifeline?

When a child is born or diagnosed with a serious illness, the entire family is affected. Families literally can be torn apart as one parent moves into the hospital to be with the sick child. Siblings, already worried about a brother’s or sister’s health, suffer greatly when their daily routines are disrupted.

Chai Lifeline Canada steps in, offering whatever is needed. Counseling for each member of the family, volunteers who bring an extra measure of adult attention and stability to children’s lives, tutoring for children who must miss school for extended periods of time, family retreats, special sibling programs, information, peer and professional support, and two extraordinary summer camp programs for seriously ill children help families retain a sense of normalcy and hope while fighting even the most dire pediatric diseases. All programs are free of charge.

    Children remind us what it’s like to be happy with the simple things in life.   Back in the summer of 2016 I partook in a Chai Lifeline family event to barbecue for the kids and families. That moment for me is one I cannot......

sisiMEET SISI

Three year old Sisi is an artist, a dancer, a princess and now a cancer survivor. She has fought through dozens of rounds of chemo, months of radiation and has come out a feistier girl than ever! We love painting, colouring and playing princess with Sisi and enjoy having her at our carnivals and movie nights. Sisi has captured the hearts of her volunteers and our staff at chai lifeline.
