Jordan, 15, benefited from our Transportation Program after suffering a stroke

Our world was turned upside down!

In January 2014, after suffering a stroke while playing hockey in his hometown of St. John's, 15-years-old Jordan had to be airlifted to the Hospital for Sick children (SickKids) in Toronto for treatment.

The experience left his parent, leah and Doug Chaulk, in a state of shock: "Our world was turned upside down!" They knew how important it was to travel to Toronto to be there by their son's side, but their options were limited. "The Janeway Children<s Hospital in St.John<s contacted the Air Canada Foundation and got us on a flight within a few hours," they relate. "Now JOrdan is home and recovering well! We<d like to thank the Air Canada Foundation and their Hospital Transportation Program for taking care of us during the worst time of our lives when we couldn<t take care of ourselves."
