Some of you know me in real life, by my name Olivia Hastings. Others may know me by my YouTube name, Animation Generation. But what a lot of you don’t know about me is that I’m a social ambassador for this amazing hospital, SickKids.
This all started about seven years ago when I was brought to this amazing hospital, but for a scary reason. I was getting wicked headaches, throwing up everywhere, and even unable to walk. We went to our local hospital on many occasions, but they were unable to pin down a diagnosis and my symptoms continued to worsen. It wasn’t until a MRI revealed swelling in my brain that a biopsy was mentioned. And the thought of people drilling a hole into my brain wasn’t to appealing to my seven year old self. It was clear this was the last move our local hospital could make in terms of my unknown disease. It was at this point we were transferred to SickKids.
SickKids being on the forefront of research was able to identify that I was antimog positive. This disease was so newly recognized and only recently it’s received the name MOGAD. I have been treated at SickKids ever since. And we can’t thank them enough for that. Thanks to them, I able to fundraise, walk, and do what I love to do most, animate. So please, I urge you to give a donation to this incredible hospital so that they can continue to grow, and help more children.
Turns out they have a Youtube channel as well - check it out and see where your donation is going.
Help me unleash the full potential of SickKids by donating online – it’s safe, secure and easy. Any amount you give today will help me reach my fundraising goal.
Let’s rally, march, and celebrate. When we unite in the fight against limits at SickKids, we’re unstoppable.
