iPads for Starship - Aria MacDonald

iPads for Starship


Today was a very special day for our family.  We got a great opportunity to be there when Aria’s Trust and the Kids Foundation presented the Gastro Team with iPad 3s.  Aria loved her iPad.  Actually it was the family iPad but she used it a lot.

The iPads will be used by the nurse specialists to provide patient education with very impressive apps that help parents and kids see in moving 3D the inner workings of our body.  Of course they will be used for a great variety of things such an entertainment while the parents talk with the team and emails on the go.


Lots of people reading this would of donated to Aria’s trust.  Thank you!  Your gift is living on.

It was great to see the team today including the doctors and nurses that worked so hard for Aria.  We really miss them!  I *think* that I am right in saying we formed a great relationship with them and the team in Omaha.  We loved Aria’s team and I am pretty such the feeling is mutual!

We really struggle with the fact Aria isn’t here.  We miss her a lot, today we really felt it.  It is super sad that things did not work out for her like everyone had hoped.  I so very much wish she was here.  She would be stoked to know what we got to do today.

Sylvie is doing well.  Here is a pic of her with Dr E!
