Kids Like Elara!
Elara lives with complex care needs, after being born with a rare congenital heart defect. Her chronic health conditions have led to numerous stays at Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital and as a result, Elara was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
“PTSD is a challenge in kids because, to be frank, Elara only knows this life that she has,” said Elara’s mom, Tara. “Elara doesn’t talk about the things that she has been through, she endures them. Despite all that, she loves going to the hospital, and we have always taken solace in that because it’s a testament to the care she gets there. But, we’ve learned that it is also related to PTSD, because she feels the safest at the hospital. It’s where she gets rescued.” Learn more about Elara's story.
