When Norah was 10 months old, her parents learned she had a permanent genetic condition: cystic fibrosis. Since her diagnosis, Norah and her mother have had to travel more than 750km four times a year between their home in northern British Columbia in Prince George and the BC Children's Hospital in Vancouver. These frequent trips have resulted in a rapid accumulation of medical, transportation and accommodation costs. Fortunately, thanks to the Air Canada Foundation's Hospital Transportation Program, the financial responsibility of these trips is reduced. This allows Norah's mother to focus on Norah's treatment by the BC Children's Hospital team.
