Meet Our Team

These wonderful humans make it all happen.

Deanna Hagen
Founder/Chair/Executive Director

I have dedicated my life to serving my community, showing kindness and compassion to people in need.  In 2015 I recognized a technology barrier that families and children faced while they were receiving life saving treatment in the hospital, therefore, it was a natural fit to begin iKare4Kids. Seeing the joy that iKare4Kids brings these children is so rewarding!

Audrey McAmmond
Vice-Chair/Fundraiser Coordinator

Volunteering is my heart and soul! I believe that a child should have every opportunity to be happy and carefree, the same way they came into this world. Therefore, if by donating an iPad or tablet, I have eased a little bit of their thinking about their pain, meds and the tubes they’re dealing with I have helped in a small way.

Lynne Howat
Director/Donation Coordinator

iKare4kids is a program that is do much needed here in Canada. Being able to help children at a difficult time in their lives is especially important to me.

Melissa Moir

Business Development Executive

Volunteering for iKare4Kids is a privilege and honour. Rooted in connection and compassion, my values align with  such a worthwhile cause and amazing group of people serving children experiencing a challenging medical journey. Providing support and connection to those in their time of need is so worthwhile and rewarding.

In my professional life, I have provided safety and security to my community for almost 20 years. Now I enjoy contributing to my community in a different way. It is extremely rewarding to know that our donated technology eases some of the pain and difficulty for families when they are facing the most challenging times with their ill child. Bringing smiles to those who are struggling warms my heart.
