Rainbow after the Storm

Sisters Nancy Nguyen and Helen Ng along with the Uvic HINF Alumni Charity Team hosted Rainbow after the Storm, and with friends and family in attendance raised over $20,000 for the BC Women's Newborn ICU.

The inspiration for this fundraiser was beautiful baby Rylan, son of Mathew and Helen Ng who was delivered stillborn earlier this year.  Rylan’s spirit will live on through the funds raised in his honor.

Babies and families cared for in the BC Women's Newborn ICU will benefit greatly from this donation which is supporting the following:

  • $4,000: Family Support Fund for parents and families who require financial assistance during their babies' stay at the Newborn ICU
  • $5,000: A Day for a Baby's Life in the Newborn ICU
  • $1,000: A Baby Tile in loving memory of Baby Rylan
  • $10,000: A Phototherapy Unit for the BC Women's Newborn ICU

Pictured here are Mathew and Helen Ng with their 3 year old son Brayden and his aunt, Nancy Nguyen.

Thank you to everyone who attended this fundraising event and thank you to this lovely family for their incredible generosity.
