As many of our close friends and family are aware, the Stoddart family has always been involved with hockey. Don and Brooke have been a part of the Brampton Canadettes organization for 20 years now, Brooke playing for 16 of those years then fulfilling her dreams by going to school and playing hockey in the states, while Don coached and is now the president of the organization. The hockey community is a very close nit group and when tragedy strikes we become even closer. Kristen's unfortunate story started with a collision during her hockey game that unveiled a per-existing condition of Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM). We are reaching out to our friends and family to help a special family in need.
On October 21st, 2017 after a collision during her hockey game, Kristen was rushed to Brampton Civic Hospital where doctors did a CT scan and found blood in her brain. She was then airlifted to Sick Kids Hospital where she was diagnosed with an Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM), a hemorrhage of the blood vessels in the brain. An operation was performed to drain the fluid and she was heavily sedated. A few days later her medical team decided to perform an angiogram to prevent a re-bleed but were unsuccessful. A week later, the AVM re-bled and she was rushed into surgery again where part of her cranium was removed, followed by yet another angiogram. Another trying week followed, and further difficulties lead to a third angiogram being performed. During this time, she battled to keep her vitals at bay with her family keeping watch at her bedside, before slowly starting to show signs of improvement.......
