Celebrating Sarah's Fund's 15 years of making a difference



Dear Friends, 

It is hard to believe that this fall marks the 15th Anniversary of Sarah’s Fund for Cedars. Back in 2001 when we joined forces with the Montreal Children’s Hospital’s Hematology/Oncology team to make a real difference in the lives of kids fighting cancer, little did we know what a difference we would make.

We have raised over $9 million. But we have not done it alone. Thanks to the dedication of individual Montrealers, young and old, we built a dedicated floor for pediatric oncology patients at the Montreal Children’s Hospital: we support animal and music therapy programs; we fund continuing education for nurses; we purchase much needed equipment; and we support families in need. 
 
This year we are excited to launch a new initiative thanks to the generosity of Jellifish Kids and ‘The Bell’ Fund who are graciously supporting Sarah’s Comfort Kit which provides every newly diagnosed pediatric cancer patient a comfort kit on Sarah’s Floor.

Sarah’s Comfort Kit started with a deep desire to help children battling cancer and other life threatening conditions have something to smile about and help make their stay on Sarah’s Floor a little bit more comfortable. 

We are so grateful to all our donors, events and special tributes. They all mean so much. But, for me, the most touching are the events organized by the children , their families and friends, like The Kids for Kids Gala’s 25th Annual Silver Edition. 

Thank you for supporting Sarah’s Fund for Cedars. With your ongoing generosity, we can continue to help children with cancer. They deserve the very best care. 

Warm regards, 

Sarah Cook
