Quantum Properties in Abbotsford donates $175K to Canuck Place

Contribution made over two years from portion of condo-suite sales

An Abbotsford company has donated $175,000 over the last two years to Canuck Place in Abbotsford.

Quantum Properties and president/CEO Diane Delves have contributed $1,000 from every suite sold at the Mahogany at Mill Lake condo development.

Canuck Place Children’s Hospice has experienced a devastating loss of funding due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Delves recognizes the role that Canuck Place plays in supporting children and families facing life-threatening conditions and diseases.

“It is an honour to be able to support Canuck Place and the incredible work that they do,” she sadi.

“The compassionate staff make such a huge difference to children with life-limiting illnesses and their families coping with these challenges. I am happy to help Canuck Place provide such necessary love and care to these families.”

Dave Lede House in Abbotsford is Canuck Place’s second hospice location. The other is in Vancouver.

Dr. Hal Siden, Canuck Place medical director, said the goal is to “optimize living” for kids from newborn to age 19 and their families.

“We know a full life includes making the most of the time that is left. Together, with donor support, we empower children and families to make important choices: a choice for care focused on symptoms and quality of life; a choice for the place for end-of-life; and a choice for emotional and bereavement support,” he said.

In the last year alone, Canuck Place has seen an increase of 19 per cent in in-patient care and a 33 per cent increase in out-patient care.

Funds raised through initiatives like Quantum Properties support the delivery of pediatric palliative care through the Canuck Place provincial program. Visit canuckplace.org for more information or to make a donation.
