MEET CAIDEN

COMMUNITY SUPPORT GAVE CAIDEN A SECOND CHANCE.





































Former STARS patient Caiden with long-time lottery supporter Jennifer.



Thank you, Saskatchewan: because of your steadfast support of the STARS lottery, Caiden has been able to enjoy an active childhood.

Two and a half years ago, his parents weren’t sure he’d get to grow into the talented young man he is today. A dirt biking accident landed Caiden face down in the gravel, with his bike on top of him. One of his leg bones was sticking out of his skin, and he was in extreme pain. He asked his mom if he was going to die.

When the STARS crew arrived, Caiden’s mom felt instant relief.

Surgeries and months of physiotherapy were tough on Caiden, but he took up guitar and worked hard to regain his hockey skills. This year his team became division champions and made provincial finals.

Every day, Caiden’s family thanks the people of Saskatchewan for helping to give him a second chance at life.



CELEBRATING FIVE YEARS OF STARS IN SASKATCHEWAN

2017 marks five years since STARS launched operations in Saskatchewan in 2012; Regina in April and Saskatoon in October. The need for our service was real: in both cities, we were dispatched on our first mission within hours of opening.

Five years and more than 4,000 missions later, STARS has flourished in Saskatchewan, thanks to you. Our two bases have been leaders in emergency medical innovation, education and community engagement. Our service has become an integral part of the chain of survival. And we’ve been able to touch countless lives in more than 500 communities across the province.

Thanks to your support of the STARS lottery, we’ve been able to help give thousands of people in Saskatchewan a second chance at life. Through your continued support, we’ll be there for the next patient who needs us.

JENNIFER PLAYED THE LOTTERY. CAIDEN WON.


When ten-year-old Caiden suffered a bad dirt biking accident, a network of medical experts swung into action. Among them, a caring and dedicated STARS crew who ensured Caiden received expert care and swift transport to an advanced hospital, optimizing his chance of a full recovery. Making his STARS mission — and countless others — possible are thousands of lottery supporters across Saskatchewan. Supporters like Jennifer, who recognize the need to keep STARS in the sky, no matter the economic climate. Even after suffering a job layoff last year, Jennifer continued to buy tickets and won a grand prize.

The people of Saskatchewan know what it means to be part of a community, and to be there for neighbours in need. It’s this community pride that has sustained the province through floods and fires, booms and busts, and every challenge along the way. For so many patients like Caiden, the care they need is available thanks to supporters like you across Saskatchewan who make it possible.

INCREASING THE SAFETY OF OUR COMMUNITIES

Three times per day in Saskatchewan, STARS carries out life-saving missions to help critically ill and injured patients. We further contribute to the safety of our communities by providing emergency medical training at no cost to rural health care professionals who may be faced with barriers of distance and the inability to leave home at regular intervals to train. Our transport physicians provide valuable medical consultations even in cases where STARS isn’t dispatched, and they work with Collaborative Emergency Centres to extend the hours of emergency service in certain communities.

Since establishing operations in Saskatchewan in 2012, our non-profit organization has carried out more than 4,000 missions to 500 communities across the province, providing the prospect of a second chance to those who may not have had one otherwise.

STARS visits rural communities to provide hands-on critical care training to local emergency service providers and health care professionals.

STARS works with local firefighters, police, EMS, medical staff and other allies in the chain of survival to bring timely care and transport to the critically ill and injured across the province.

HOW WE’RE FUNDED

The Government of Saskatchewan provides approximately 50 per cent of the funds needed to operate our two bases in Regina and Saskatoon.

The remaining 50 per cent (approximately $11 million) is raised annually by the STARS Foundation through fundraisers (including the STARS Lottery Saskatchewan) and individual, corporate and community donations.
