Story of Serenity

Serenity, 4, from a central First Nation community in Alberta, was known as an outgoing preschooler who adored the outdoors and food.


On Sept. 18, 2014, she was admitted to hospital, suffering from a severe head injury and covered in bruises. She weighed just 18 pounds.


On Sept. 27, 2014, Serenity was taken off life support. In October 2017, her caregivers were charged with failing to provide the necessaries of life.
