Do you think this cover should be banned?

According to Perez the most recent issue of Q magazine with Gaga on the cover has reportedly been banned from a lot of shops in the U.S including Borders book stores. They are refusing to stock the issue unless Gaga's breast is covered up entirely or the magazine is sealed in a protective bag. What do you think? Is this too risque?

Jesus In a Frying Pan?

British bank cashier Toby Elles believes he has found Jesus in his frying pan. Toby swears the image really appeared after he burnt a pancake he was making last week in his apartment and accidentally left the pan on. Toby woke in the middle of the night to find the pancake smoking and threw the pan into a sink of cold water. The next morning Toby found the face of Jesus burned into the pan.

Riley is 6 and he has leukemia, take a listen to an amazing boy and family.

Riley Griffin is a very bright six-year-old from Halifax. The budding scientist learned a lot about blood cells during his stay at the IWK.

That’s because Riley had leukemia, and his care team was able to teach him about his illness, and his own treatment, through the use of special toys and tools.

As you’re about to hear from Riley’s mom, Wendy, when a child receives a diagnosis such as leukemia, the resulting treatment is about far more than just cancer.

Thanks Riley and Wendy. The number again, 1-800-595-2266 or visit to make an online donation now.

We are looking for new members of the IWK Superstar program – monthly donors who want to ensure the IWK receives funding above and beyond what the government can provide. The IWK – and children like Riley – need your help.

Speaking of above and beyond, we heard Riley’s mom, Wendy, mention that Riley was shown his own bone marrow in the lab, so he could better understand why he was having blood drawn so often.

That, without a doubt, is the type of “above and beyond” patients receive each day at the IWK. It is part of the magic of this place, and it is why so many Maritime families say they actually LOVE it here. Ironic, isn’t it, that people LOVE a hospital?

Imagine your child waking up with arthritis, Nile Whidden did. Take a listen.

Nile Whidden lives in pain almost every day of his life.

He has Juvenile Ideopathic Arthritis, or JIA, which causes swelling and pain in the knees, ankles, wrists and other joints.

Nile and his family agreed to let us tag along during a recent check up here at the IWK.

Here’s what that sounded like:

A big thanks to the Whidden family for allowing us to be there with them during some private moments with caregivers.

We heard Nile’s dad Jamie say how terrible it feels to watch his child suffer.

None of us want any child to suffer, and that’s why we’re here, to do our small part to take away that pain for kids like Nile.

Please take a moment to call or log on and become an IWK Superstar for these kids – send them the message that you believe in them, and want them to be pain free.

All about Four-month-old Lily Frittenburg

Four-month-old Lily Frittenburg is getting a lot of attention at the IWK.

She was born with an extremely rare skin disorder known as Incontinentia Pigmenti, or IP.

The condition causes painful blisters on her arms and legs but can also affect her eyes, teeth and her brain among other things.

We met Lily and her parents at the Perinatal Follow up clinic recently, where several caregivers were lined up to see Lily for the first time.

Here’s what that sounded like:

You heard Lily’s Dad, Andy, mention they’ll be back for eye tests on the 19th – we’re hoping to see the Frittenburgs on Friday to find out how that went.

We also heard Dr. Stinston in that piece mention that Lily’s skin condition is a lifelong condition. That means that while Lily has just started her IWK journey, she will be visiting specialists here for the next 18 years!

If you become an IWK Superstar today, you are helping to support Lily, and hundreds of children like her, who will require highly specialized care over a longer period of time.

Please make that call and provide the ongoing support the IWK depends on.

Have you ever heard of OCD? Jennifer Parlee is living with it, find out more here.

Jennifer Parlee was in grade 9 or 10 when she started having consuming thoughts and developed repetitive behaviour.

She didn’t talk about it with anybody, including her parents.

But her anxiety around her thoughts became so problematic, Jennifer realized she needed to tell somebody, and get help.

Jennifer’s story is quite remarkable – and she does a great job of describing what it is like to live with her mental illness.

Sadly, there are many other children and teens out there who still need the care she received. That’s why your support is so critical. Become an IWK Superstar and let them know you are here for them.

Also, Jennifer has written a blog about her experiences, you can read it at the following link:

Elizabeth Hardy was only a few months old and needed a new liver!

Three-year-old Elizabeth Hardy can win you over with her smile in seconds.

But her first 3 years have not been easy ones.

When she was just a few months old, her parents learned she needed a new liver.

Here’s Elizabeth’s story:

Little Elizabeth has a new liver and she keeps on smiling.

And like many of the stories we’re hearing, patients like Elizabeth will be followed by the IWK until they are adults.

We want children like Elizabeth to receive the best care – that means state of the art equipment, up-to-date facilities, and of course, the best specialists in the country.

We’re asking for as little as $15 per month – that is only 50 cents a day – so that Elizabeth and her family have the same confidence in the IWK that they have today.

Taylor Bailey was born with Cystic Fibrosis and is a regular at the IWK

Taylor Bailey has been an IWK patient her whole life.

She has Cystic Fibrosis, a chronic disease affecting lung function and digestion.

We met up with Taylor in her room up on the 7th floor. She was getting ready to be discharged and return home to Springhill.

Taylor requested to be admitted to the IWK to get what she calls a “tune up”, because she knew her lung function was too low.

And as you’re about to hear, one of the tell-tell signs she is doing better is she can sing again.

Taylor treated us to a song by her all-time favourite artist, Taylor Swift.

Taylor Bailey from Springhill. We also heard Dr. Hughes in that tape – he was checking in on her before she was discharged from the IWK.

It’s patients like Taylor who are here at the IWK for the long term. They return for regular treatments and therapies.

By becoming an IWK Superstar today, you are ensuring patients receive nothing but the best care, each and every time they visit this incredible health centre.
