The LivWise Foundation began with one simple act of kindness from Olivia’s cousin, Jeff. Knowing Olivia’s passion for singing, Jeff wanted to give Olivia the chance to sing in a professional recording studio.
On September 9th 2013, Olivia was recorded singing Katy Perry’s “Roar”. It was one of the most memorable experiences of Olivia’s life. The LivWise Foundation was created to give sick children like Olivia the chance to live their dreams just like she did.
One of our main goals is to partner with like-minded charities that are also working to make a difference in the lives of sick children and their families. The remarkable generosity of our sponsors, donors, and community has enabled the LivWise Foundation to make significant contributions to the following departments and programs at SickKids Hospital: Palliative Access Care Team; Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario, The Arthur and Sonia Labatt Brain Tumour Research Center, and a promising research study of BMMRD glioblastoma brain tumours, under the direction of Olivia’s doctors, Dr. Uri Tabori, Dr. Eric Boufet and Dr. Cynthia Hawkins. Additionally, contributions have been made to The Dr. Jay Children’s Grief Program and Mt. Sinai Hospital’s Panov Program for Precision Chemotherapy.
This year, we will be contributing funds to a special research study at SickKids under the direction of Dr. Uri Tabori, Dr. Eric Bouffet and Dr. Cynthia Hawkins and their team. We thank you for your support!
