"We will always be staunch supporters of MODC because we have seen first hand how a person that feels fearful, lost and hopeless due to a physical deficit, can actually be given hope, and that dignity and independence can be realized, all thanks to this life changing organization."

At 19, Michael Deng is one of our youngest monthly donors.  He has been a donor for two years and has also committed to being a volunteer at MODC.

Polio survivor, March of Dimes Canada Board Member and monthly donor, Catherine Bell, shares her story to help educate survivors, and to highlight the benefits of giving back. “I am so thankful for what March of Dimes did for me and what I was able to do in my life. If it wasn’t for March of Dimes, I would not be able to be active and run my business. So by donating, and volunteering, I am able to give back, the way they gave to me.”
