“Every year, Anneliese's birthday party is also a fundraiser so we can help raise money for kids just like Anneliese.” — Kristen, Anneliese’s mom

Anneliese loves dressing up to play house, reading books with her big brother and going for walks any chance she gets – all thanks to the Stollery’s experts who are always there when she needs them.

Born with cerebral palsy and a blockage in her brain, Anneliese had her first brain surgery at five days old to insert a shunt that drains the fluid from her brain.

When she was six weeks old, she was rushed from her home in Lamont, AB, to the Stollery for emergency surgery when her shunt failed, and Anneliese’s neurosurgery team saved her life once again.

Now living in Bon Accord, Anneliese has had five life-saving brain surgeries, visited the Stollery’s emergency countless times and been admitted to the Hospital 24 times. She receives ongoing care at the Stollery for her complex medical needs, which is why Anneliese's family is grateful to have a world-class children’s hospital right in their own backyard.
