DG Kids Care

Our way of supporting courageous children and resilient families.

Drops of Gratitude donates a portion of sales from every single DG Kids bracelet sold directly to a family in need. Each quarter we tally up the donations - and then we DOUBLE IT! It is our small way of helping to ease financial burdens of everyday life.
 

We know that behind every courageous child battling a disease, there is a brave and resilient family. We understand the challenges families face when hardship occurs and we want them to focus their attention solely on what is most important - the health and well-being of their family.

Meet Jemma Sparkle

This is Jemma (Jemma Sparkle). She is 4 years old. Don't be fooled by her age, Jemma has proven to be an incredible fighter! She is brave and her heart is strong. In early 2019 Jemma was diagnosed with FIRES (Febrile Infection Related Epilepsy Syndrome) - a rare form of epilepsy.

 

FIRES strikes children without warning and unfortunately there is no known cure. The seizures are extremely hard to treat. Due to the intensity of Jemma's care, her parents, Trisha and Derek, have now had to take on the full time commitment to care for her from home. If you would like to help support the Graham family further, you may do so by donating to their GoFundMe account.

The Graham family is working towards saving to send Jemma to an intensive rehab center this summer that works with kids (and adults) who have experienced neurological damage. They would like to help Jemma build the strength to walk again as she enrolls into Grade 1 without having to depend on a wheelchair.

JEMMA UPDATES

Jemma has been home and recovering since being discharged in July 2019. There have been a few admissions to the Children's Hospital since. The most recent setback was earlier this year for her newly diagnosed Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
