The Hematology, Oncology and Nephrology service at the IWK recognizes that the journey of a life-threatening illness is a hard one, with many challenges and adjustments along the way. Because of this, the team has an ‘End of Treatment’ bell. The bell is there for children and youth to ring at milestone moments. Ringing the bell means that a child or youth has finished their course of treatment and is ready for the next chapter of their life.

Abstract
Le service d’hématologie, d’oncologie et de néphrologie du IWK sait que le cheminement pour traiter une maladie extrêmement grave est difficile. Il y a de nombreux défis à relever et ajustements à faire durant ce cheminement. C’est pour cette raison que le service a une cloche de fin de traitement. La cloche est là pour que les enfants et les jeunes la fassent sonner lors de moments marquants. Sonner la cloche signifie qu’un enfant ou un jeune a fini sa série de traitements et qu’il est prêt à entreprendre une nouvelle étape de sa vie. / The Hematology, Oncology and Nephrology service at the IWK recognizes that the journey of a life-threatening illness is a hard one, with many challenges and adjustments along the way. Because of this, the team has an ‘End of Treatment’ bell. The bell is there for children and youth to ring at milestone moments. Ringing the bell means that a child or youth has finished their course of treatment and is ready for the next chapter of their life.
