Words from Island Families

Thanks to funding from the Foundation, we had a crash course in parenting a preemie, keeping us on our game without making us feel like we didn’t know what we were doing—and our son is thriving as a result.

The Solarium was my home. It was such a good childhood in many, many ways. I’ve always felt capable to do anything I wanted, and I’m here today, 80 years old, still able to do my thing.

Once you’ve had a sick kid there’s never any going back to normal. It gets better and better the further we get from that time, but Jeneece Place is still our home away from home whenever we’re in Victoria for Gabe’s check-ups.
