Wendy's Journey From Pediatric Nurse To Wish Parent

September 2018

Wendy has been a nurse practitioner in pediatric neurosurgery for 15 years and has spent 19 years working at Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton. She has referred hundreds of children to Make-A-Wish, but Wendy’s connection to the wish-granting organization is especially personal. Her daughter, Olivia, has hydrocephalus, a condition in which there is a buildup of fluid in her brain. She was born 16 weeks premature and had bleeding in her brain. Olivia has now had 30 operations on her brain, 19 operations on her spine, and has spent 416 days of her life in hospital.
