Pajamas and pancakes
Why Pajamas? Why Pancakes? For many, pajamas mean warmth, coziness, a warm hug at the end of a long day. But for a child with cancer, pajamas can mean a very different thing—time “living” in hospital undergoing treatment; long, early morning car rides to clinic; being sick at home; and missing school and play time with friends and family. Pancakes just seem to go hand in hand with pajamas and provide the opportunity for people to come together to share a meal. Pajamas and Pancakes = human connection, great fun and a yummy way to champion childhood cancer care.

She stopped eating and a cut over her forehead just would not heal. Multiple visits to our local hospital didn’t get us any closer to understanding what was going on, but within 45 minutes into an emergency visit at The Hospital for Sick Children, we found out she had leukemia. Adaejah was admitted immediately.
