A Tribute in Memory of
Tarvinder Grewal


From the time she was born, BC Children’s Hospital played a critical role in Tarvinder’s life. She was born on October 18th, 1991 at 10:00am with Spina Bifida, a condition that affects the nerves of the spinal cord disabling the spine to send and receive messages from the brain. Tarvinder was always grateful for the support and care she received from the staff at BC Children’s Hospital. She was especially thankful of the care received from Dr. Cochrane, Neurologist at BC Children’s Hospital. Dr. Cochrane played a pivotal role in her life from day one. Always smiling and optimistic, Dr. Cochrane made Tarvinder's countless visits to the hospital enjoyable. Nicknamed as “Mindy” by the team at BC Children’s Hospital, Tarvinder was known for her beautiful signature smile and contagious laugh. 

Forever in our hearts, she leaves behind her family and friends. To us she was our star and will always and forever shine bright. Rest in peace our sweet angel.
