About Austin’s Playroom

In 1996, Nathalie and Mario Lemieux’s son, Austin, was born prematurely and spent 71 days in a hospital NICU. His parents spent many days there, which was also hard on his sisters, who were just toddlers. Soon, they created Austin’s Playrooms for young hospital visitors. Nathalie Lemieux serves as chair of Austin’s Playrooms and Vice President of the Lemieux Foundation.
