Fighting bullying

Did you know that 75 percent of people say they've been affected by bullying? Patients at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Canada usually have physical disabilities and as stated above, are twice as likely to endure bullying. We have therefore joined the fight against bullying with our #CutTheBull campaign and are touring schools across Canada to help get the message out that bullying is never okay.

The star of our bilingual tour is 17-year-old patient Jeffrey. Born without a right hand or right foot, Jeffrey was bullied due to his physical differences. It began with name calling but turned violent in seventh grade. "I blamed myself for a while," Jeffrey admits. "But I realized that I don't have to change. The bullies should learn to accept me. I now know that if I can overcome bullying, I can overcome anything." Jeffrey's testimonial is supported by a presentation, posters and information packages developed in partnership with a school violence prevention specialist.

If you would like to host Jeffrey and the Canada Shriners Hospital at your school or would like more information about our #CutTheBull campaign, please email us or visit
