Sana’s B-day “Burger n’ Beer” Fundraiser

June 1, 2013

Sana's birthday wish: 

On June 4th, I will be turning 29. This year, with your support, my birthday wish is to change the meaning of birthdays for some of BC's most vulnerable women and children.

Fir Square, at BC Women's Hospital, supports and cares for substance-using women and their newborns as they stabilize and withdraw from substances. Mother and baby bonding is a crucial part of this process, and ultrasound scans are one of the best ways to establish this bond early on. For women whose lives are complicated by trauma, disenfranchisement, and subsequent problematic substance use, facilitating prenatal bonding is critical to improving outcomes.

To facilitate this important bonding step, on my birthday, I'm hoping to purchase a $4,000.00 SeeMore™ Ultrasound Imaging Probe for Fir Square. This probe connects to any laptop, and provides a cost-effective and convenient way to provide these important scans.

As a birthday gift to me, I'm hoping you will contribute towards this goal before June 4, 2013. With $4000, we will be able to help turn more birthdays at Fir Square into celebrations that are marking an end to intergenerational cycles of harm, for both mothers and their babies. 


Please make a donation to support Sana's Birthday!
