We're fundraising for SickKids because ...

Hi, my name is Emily (the leader of Dream Team).  My team and I are fundraising for Sick Kids because ... 

It all started 9 years ago on the first day of grade one.  Just like every first day, it started with a mix of laughter, excitement and tears. Those feelings quickly turned into fear, as I got really sick that night. 

I ended up being at Sick Kids for a week. The stay was a bit of a blur to me but I remembered all the kind and friendly faces of the doctors and nurses who I met along the way. 

I went home thinking that I could be my sweet and healthy self again, not knowing that I would be back there the next week in complete silence….. 

 

Just because I lost my hearing at 6

Doesn’t mean that I had an awful childhood

Doesn’t mean that I couldn’t communicate with the world

Doesn’t mean that my world was lonely and silent

It means that I was always loved, never lonely, and lived in a world filled with colours and music

 

Just because I have Cochlear implants

Doesn’t mean that I can’t go to school

Doesn’t mean that I struggled and fell behind

Doesn’t mean that I stood out of a group

It means that I have a proper education with good grades

 

Just because I am hard of hearing

Doesn’t mean that I can’t follow my dreams

Doesn’t mean that I’m not capable of doing what I love

Doesn’t mean that I’m a nobody

It means that I’m a young independent girl following her interests and being an Artsies

 

Just because I’m DEAF

Doesn’t mean I can’t be a role model

Doesn’t mean I can’t be your friend

Doesn’t mean that I can’t be someone’s daughter, granddaughter, niece, or cousin.

Because you know what? 

I AM ALL OF THE ABOVE
