Team Canuck Place - In Honour/In Memory
Florence Marigold Evanow
Florence Marigold Evanow was born in the blue of March, on the 7th day in 2012.
She lived a beautiful life, with her mama and daddy, and she met and loved on her brother, Theodore Brave for 7 short months.
Florence passed away on May 9th 2015 at Canuck Place. She was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, type 1, the number 1 genetic killer of infants. Florence was three and surpassed the odds, as most children with SMA type 1 are given life expectancy of two years.
Canuck Place changed our lives. They offered us compassion, wonderful care, fun, a safe space, courage, warm meals, respite care, and activities that we would otherwise not have been involved in---like getting Florence's photos with Santa! We will forever be grateful to them for all that they have given us, and continue to give us. We are still a part of the program and their bereavment support is phenomenal.
