Children needing specialized care for heart-related conditions will soon see their specialist in a state-of-the-art Echo Exam room within Pediatric Outpatients at Children’s Hospital of Saskatchewan, thanks to a generous contribution of $125,000, made in loving memory of Dylon Piper.

RR-2016-01-27-chfs-PipersAt just 25 years of age, Dylon died from cardiac arrhythmia – an abnormal heartbeat that disrupted the normal functioning of his heart.

Dylon Piper’s memory will live on at Children’s Hospital of Saskatchewan thanks to this gift that will ensure children and families receive the cardiac care they need in an ECHO Exam Room in Pediatric Outpatients.

The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan thanks the Piper family for creating positive change by enhancing pediatric healthcare in Saskatchewan.

“We are tremendously grateful to the Piper family for supporting heart health in our province,” says Brynn Boback-Lane, President and CEO of the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan. “This gift to our new maternal and children’s hospital is a truly meaningful and lasting way to honour Dylon’s memory.”

“This donation will make a significant difference in the care we are able to provide to children with cardiac conditions,” says Bette Boechler, Director Children’s Health Services, Saskatoon Health Region. “Our entire care team is very grateful to the Piper Family.”
