Lend your voice to the call to help build a new home for the Stollery, for kids tomorrow and today.

Meet Nathan


Nathan’s Stollery story began with dwarfism, but quickly shifted when doctors discovered he was also born with significant respiratory issues.

During his first two months of life, Nathan had five procedures, including a tracheotomy and a g-tube. Nathan spent more than the first seven months of his life at the Stollery, where his medical team treated him and his family with the best level of care. Nathan had his tracheostomy tube removed when he was four years old, and when he turned 10, he had titanium rods put in his back, growth plates put in his knees and a double osteotomy to realign his knee and reduce joint pressure. Nathan has more surgeries in his future, and his family is thankful to have the world-class Stollery right in their backyard.

You know you’re getting the best care at the Stollery and you know whatever needs to be done is being done by the best specialists in the world.
