Courtney’s Quest is the vision of Courtney Sadler, a brave young girl who was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia shortly after her 16th birthday. After 4 grueling rounds of chemotherapy and months spent at SickKids, Courtney is now in remission and her ‘Quest’ to raise awareness and funding for the organizations that helped save her life has begun.
