Chester the Chest found his new home at the Pediatric Oncology Clinic at Victoria General Hospital. IKCA was able to purchase this training doll for the clinic. Chester the Chest with advanced arm is a teaching tool that the medical staff will use not only for the staff but for families and patients.
“Imagine” was a professionally produced ice show. Juan De Fuca Arena was transformed into an amazing setting that was fun for all ages! Imagine the British Rock invasion of the 1960s, under the sea or New York City - just some of the imaginative places they went. The show allowed your imagination to run wild.
Island Kids Cancer sponsored a fun filled afternoon at GLOW. Families enjoyed pizza, refreshments, cupcakes and yes even a few hole in ones! Thank you GLOW, we will definitely be back.
Thank you to the ladies from Stampin Up on this cold crisp day. Love was definitely in the air as everyone completed four amazing projects for their special Valentine.

Island Kids Cancer sponsored a 4 Cats Gingerbread making Sunday afternoon and it was awesome! The clay took shape quickly and the creations took on personalities of their own. Well done everyone! Even the 4 Cats staff were impressed by the creativity and talent !
It was a wonderful, spooky day full of pizza and bowling at Langford Lanes on October 28th. The Witches, Spiders, and Angels to name a few came out to knock down some pins.
Thank you to all of the families for coming out to bowl and to Langford Lanes for being great hosts for the day!
The 6th annual “Jam for the Kids” concert fundraiser that took place on October 19th, 2018 at the Belfry Theatre was a great success! The silent auction was bustling, and everyone enjoyed fantastic music from Jaimey Hamilton, The Unfaithful Servants, and Phantom Thieves. A huge thank you goes out to the musicians, the silent auction donors, the Belfry Theatre, and everyone who came out and supported this event!
Saturday July 28th was an exciting day for the pediatric oncology kids and families on Prospect Lake with Power to Be. The morning session involved a fishing outing off the dock and on the water in a row boat. It was great fun, as the fish were hungry, nibbling and getting caught by a few of our fine "fisherkids". It was a catch and release style of fishing and no one was injured during this outing. :)
The afternoon session had 18 participants in two big canoes paddling around the lake taking in the sights, scenery and a few of the resident eagles. We look forward to our next kayak outing with Power to Be and getting to know Prospect Lake a little more!
