Living with an ailment doesn’t have to be a life sentence, we are able to help patients living with a disability learn how to reset their lives, so that they are able to be a part of the community. We bridge that gap of loneliness and lack of understanding patients often go through after diagnoses.

Chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, arthritis, mental illness, cardiovascular and chronic respiratory diseases are major contributors to reduced quality of life, loss of productivity, increased hospitalization and health care costs as well as premature death in Canada.

With your assistance we are able to help community members get the support they need and meet others with the same symptoms or conditions who can relate to them. They can learn to be a part of the community around their disability, know they are not alone and are able to get the support they deserve to be the healthiest version of themselves. We educate the public for a better understanding of individuals who might be different or do things differently. 

Our foundation was founded by award winning inclusiveness and accessibility patient advocate Carion Fenn. Carion is the President of the Carion Fenn Foundation and Host of Health 180 with Carion Fenn on Rogers TV Durham. Carion is a Member of Lakeridge Health Board of Trustees, Board Quality Committee & Co-Chair Ajax Pickering Hospital Community Panel. She is the Vice Chair on the Accessibility Advisory Committee, Advisors to Town of Ajax Council. Carion is a member of the Jamaican Canadian Association and honoured to be selected for 100 Accomplished Black Canadian Women 2018. ​

Through donations, membership and partnership, we are able to honour our charitable purpose.
