Signet Plush Bears support kids like Gianna
Aug 13, 2021 - Dec 31, 2021
Gianna’s story of her time at HSC Winnipeg Children’s Hospital is a powerful one. Above, you can listen to this year’s Signet ambassador share her journey in her own words and drawings.
While pregnant with Gianna, her mom developed Preeclampsia, which impairs blood flow to the placenta causing fluid to build in the baby’s lungs. This led to Gianna being born at 27 weeks. Just over a pound at birth, Gianna experienced congestive heart failure, and required both heart and eye surgeries.
By purchasing a plush bear – that Gianna has named “Snowball” – at your local Peoples Jewellers you can help families like Gianna’s get the care they need at their local children’s hospital.
Find yours at Peoples in Polo Park, St. Vital Centre, Kildonan Place or Outlet Collection Winnipeg.
