The Shrine Bowl King and Queen

 Two patients from Shriners Hospitals for Children – Canada, Victoria, 14, and Saoud, 16, have been crowned Queen and King of Shrine Bowl Canada 2018.

Victoria first came to Shriners Hospitals for Children – Canada when she was 9. Her family already knew of the excellent care and treatments offered at the hospital since Victoria’s elder sister was treated there for her clubfoot. Under the care of Jean Ouellet, M.D. and his team, Victoria saw her scoliosis corrected. Very artsy, she enjoys drawing, crafts and most of all, dancing. She does not know yet what the future holds for her… maybe a career in cooking? However, she is certain of one thing: thanks to the care she received at Canada Shriners Hospital, the future is full of exciting possibilities!

Saoud, 16, was born in Morocco with spina bifida and issues with his legs. Despite the condition remaining undiagnosed before birth, he received great care in his native country.

When his family moved to Montreal in 2012, they knew they wanted to continue Saoud’s care at Shriners Hospitals for Children – Canada. In 2013, Saoud had a 7-hour operation to his right thigh. A team of specialists has been following him every six months ever since. Saoud will tell you that it is his physical disabilities that caused him the biggest problems at school: kids bullied him because of his spina bifida. He has turned that around by standing up to bullies and speaking to thousands of students about bullying on behalf of the hospital.
