THE GOAL:

On Nov. 9, 2024, the Jonathan Brown Foundation is hosting Jonny's Gold Ribbon Gala in support of the new Keaton’s House Paul Paletta Children’s Hospice.
Funds raised at the gala will help establish a dedicated "teen room", designed for the specific needs of teenage pediatric patients.

CAMPAIGN GOAL = $250,000

Our region, including Hamilton, Brantford, Burlington, Oakville, Milton, Cambridge, Kitchener- Waterloo, and Niagara is the only one in Ontario with a world-class children’s hospital but no children’s hospice to compliment existing services. The reality is that end-of-life care for children is provided almost exclusively within the clinical hospital setting or through complicated contracted home supports and family caregivers.
The Brown family know firsthand the life-changing impact of receiving a terminal diagnosis of a child. Jonathan Brown was 17 years old when he was diagnosed with cancer and 19 years old when he succumbed to the disease. Due to the complexity of Jonathan’s medical needs, there was no option but to spend his final days in a hospital, far from the comfort of home, surrounded by medical equipment, unfamiliar sounds and unfamiliar faces. If a facility such as Keaton’s House existed, Jonathan would have been spent his last days, with his family, in a peaceful setting with 24-hour care at the ready. It is our wish that no child, regardless of age, is deprived of exceptional end-of-life care.
There are an estimated 500 young people living in our area with life-limiting illnesses at any time. Our youths deserve to have the specialized and integrated services of a pediatric hospice and, in order for this to happen, community support is essential.
The Jonathan Brown Foundation is so pleased that, under the direction of Kemp Care Network, our region will soon have a new state-of-the-art children's hospice located in Dundas, Ontario. Our goal for Jonny’s Gold Ribbon Gala is to not only help raise much needed financial support but to also increase community awareness of this important project. Please help support this final “piece” of end-of-life care and bring “peace” to children with terminal care needs.
