Introducing the Ev Tie Headband! This beautiful floral rainbow print helps to remind us that there is always a bit of brightness, even on dark days. We were so lucky to have some of Evelyn's friends join in on a photoshoot with Ev's mom and sister.
Ev believed that there was always light peeking through the cracks, she stepped out every day in joy and it's that beautiful attitude that has inspired so much positive change. This year, all net proceeds from the sale of Ev Collection pieces will go towards the Evelyn Faye Roy Memorial Fund established with @owncancer @albertacancerfoundation to hire a ChildLife Specialist at the new Calgary Cancer Centre opening next year.
Did you know that kids receiving radiation as part of their cancer treatment in Calgary can't get it done at the Children's Hospital? They have to go to the adult Cancer Center - an environment not geared towards kids at all. Evelyn's family didn't realize that either until Evelyn had to go there. It became immediately clear to them that the kids getting radiation needed a brighter and more child-friendly experience. With this knowledge in hand, Ev's family began advocating for better resources for children like Evelyn. This advocacy work began with an annual toy drive so there would be comfort and reward items available for kids receiving treatment. Since then, it has grown into Heather, Evelyn's mom, serving as a Pediatric Radiation Oncology Advisor for the new Calgary Cancer Center opening next year. With Heather's voice being heard they have already seen some great improvements like the new pediatric waiting room, where kids can be with other kids, and better resources for the INCREDIBLE staff.
We are especially thrilled to announce the approval of the hiring of a ChildLife Specialist, which will occur when the new Cancer Center opens! The hiring of a ChildLife Specialist is critical to the mental health and care of the children receiving radiation. This is a HUGE step in a positive direction of providing whole-health care for our children. Evelyn would be so proud of this project!
