Boston loves sports and is a proud player within the Fort McMurray Minor Baseball Association – all thanks to the cardiac care he received at the Stollery Children’s Hospital.

After being hospitalized with a bout of bronchitis, Boston’s pediatrician referred him to the Stollery in Edmonton. The Hospital’s experts diagnosed Boston with a large hole in his heart, and at nine months old, the family drove five hours to the Stollery where he had open-heart surgery. Boston continues to visit the Stollery every year, which is why his family is grateful to have a world-class children’s hospital right in their backyard.
