What is Caleb's Courage?

Caleb’s Courage celebrates the life, the love, and the legacy of Caleb MacArthur; a beautiful, brave little boy who lived his life fully and simply, through love and laughter; a boy who continues to capture hearts, inspire minds, and change lives.

“Helping little superheroes fighting BIG battles” is their mission. The Caleb’s Courage mandate is to provide support for critically ill children and their families by enhancing the services, programs, and facilities for pediatric palliative care and oncology in Cape Breton.
