Ella's Story

The strength of family has always been evident for Terri and Michael, parents of three from Milford, Maine. However, since 2014, when their second baby, Ella was first diagnosed with Systemic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, they've noticed a family bond like never before.

Irving Oil’s Fuel the Care program has helped bridge the distance between home and hospital for more than 65,000 local families with children requiring medical care.

When you support Irving Oil, any time throughout the year, you’re helping Fuel the Care.

On Friday, October 11, it’s our turn to thank you by pumping gas and washing windshields at select Irving Oil gas stations.

Lily-Jade’s story

Body

Lily-Jade and her parents are inseparable. They go everywhere together. It’s the strength of their family bond that gets them through the toughest times.

“We’re together all the time – the three of us – never apart,” says Caroline, Lily-Jade’s mom. The Quebec family’s favourite place to make happy memories is the local zoo. But at just two years old, Lily-Jade also has scary memories of the countless hours she has spent in hospital.

Hospital partnerships

Body

Our Fuel the Care program is made possible through partnerships with seven hospitals in Atlantic Canada, New England and Quebec.

Each year, Irving Oil provides the hospitals with fuel gift cards to be distributed to families who need help with the cost of travel for medical care for a child. Together, we’ve been able to help give more than 65,000 families a lift when they need it most.
