In Loving Memory of Thomas Zita
Dear Family and Friends,
We are raising funds for Trillium Health Partners to honour the life and memory of a very special child. Please consider supporting us and helping us to create a lasting expression of love in Thomas' memory.
Handprints on our Hearts is a nurse-led initiative supporting the Perinatal Bereavement Program at Trillium Health Partners, Credit Valley Hospital and Mississauga Hospital. Your donation will provide ongoing support to families that have experienced the loss of a baby during pregnancy or shortly after the birth of a child. It also provides nurses with the resources needed for memory keepsake kits and their Bi-annual Memorial Service that acknowledges a life that has forever left an impression on our hearts.
The compassionate care we recieved from our nurses at Credit Valley Hospital after Thomas died was a godsend. We don't know their last names, nor do we know if they still work at CVH, but Lise and Nadine will always be remembered for their kindness and gentleness, and because we know they were given the choice to care for us, and they fearlessly said yes.
Receiving support after the loss of a child is critical. The program was, I believe, in its infancy in 2005 when Thomas was born. It sounds like there are even more resources and supports available to grieving parents now, which is a very good thing because more than anything, bereaved parents need to know that someone truly cares about them - and about the child they have just lost.
Your donation will help make this journey just a tiny bit gentler for all the bereaved moms and dads who will come after us.
Kristin & Sandy
