Covenant Foundation invites Albertans to experience "Hospitals with Heart" with the launch of DreamLife Lottery 2018. When supporting this important cause, ticket buyers have a chance to win exciting vehicles, trips and more with every prize over $10,000! This year's prizing includes our biggest grand prize home yet, our hottest early bird ever: a Ferrari 488 GTB, a totally revamped Bonus Prize of an Ultimate Sports Fan Prize Pack plus more cash than ever!

"When you purchase DreamLife tickets, you can win some life-changing prizes. But before that, you're already changing lives," says Tracy Sopkow, CEO, Covenant Foundation. "Thousands of patients rely on these hospitals for medical support, and we must come through for them with exceptional care. DreamLife Lottery helps us to do this."

At the age of 65, father and husband Bernie Krewski unexpectedly found he needed such care. "A small lump appeared on my neck, and shortly after, following medical tests, I was diagnosed with throat cancer. I was shocked and devastated. Before the diagnosis, I had felt healthy and happy and had never smoked a day in my life," explains Krewski. "My larynx was removed, as well as the lower half of my tongue. I also received radiation therapy to treat the cancer, but it destroyed my teeth."

Krewski continues, saying "I would require jaw reconstruction surgery from the Misericordia Hospital. The Misericordia's medical care, as well as the therapeutic and compassionate atmosphere, was vital to my ongoing recovery. Without the excellent medical staff and the support of campaigns like DreamLife, I wouldn't be where I am today."
