A Message of Condolence

Published: November 26, 2013

It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Dr. Mitch Winemaker’s niece, Olivia Wise. Olivia Wise, featured on CNN and CTV, was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in January 2012. Olivia passed Monday afternoon. We are rarely witness to ‘true courage’ and Olivia’s story is but one poignant example.

The Liv Wise fund (http://my.sickkidsdonations.com/personalPage.aspx?registrationID=2168039&langPref=en-CA) honors her life and courage with a real aim to support in brain tumor research. For anyone interested in supporting this research, please see the link above.
