Grace's mom

"Jamie’s was our only outing and outlet for three years. It gave us connections with others we will cherish for life. Jamie's made everything that seemed so very wrong in the world at that time OK."
—Grace's mom

Willa's mom

"Willa told me her favourite thing about Jamie's is playing and meeting new friends. My favourite aspect is being a part of a community of people where the parents have all walked in your shoes. Everyone at Jamie's is living their new normal and it is a great community where you feel understood."
—Willa's mom

Maxwell's mom

"Maxwell has a heart transplant and will be immune-compromised for life. Jamie's provides a safe environment in which he can play, interact with kids, make friends and grow. He gets to do things in the community he otherwise wouldn't. We couldn't ask for anything more wonderful."
—Maxwell's mom´╗┐
