On April 18th, 2009 Stella Joy Bruner-Methven was born on her Mama Mishi's 30th birthday. This year, Stella would have turned 10 years old and Mishi is turning 40!
To mark this bittersweet mileston, Stella's family would like to freshen up "Stella's Snuggling Corner", a lovely little nook at Stella's beloved East End Children's Centre. Stella spent much of her life playing at our Kimbourne site, where she celebrated her very first birthday and where all three of her siblings have also had the opportunity to run, play and make friends.
If you know the Bruner-Methvens, Stella needs no introduction! Or maybe you know Stella through the Toronto Star's coverage of her navigating life with a brain tumour and dying at the age of 3.5 in 2012.
East End Children's Centre remains connected to this amazing family and we were thrilled to hear they wanted to turn this big birthday celebration into a fundraiser for our centre!
Please consider a donation in honour of Stella's and Mishi's birthdays!
Thank you for celebrating Stella and Mishi!
