The new Sarah’s Fund Initiative was launched on December 15, 2016

On December 15, 2016, we were proud to have launched a new Sarah’s Fund initiative. The Sarah’s Fund comfort kit started with a deep desire to help children battling cancer and other life threatening conditions have something to smile about to help make their stay on Sarah’s Floor a little bit more comfortable. Each suitcase contains a bathrobe, laundry mesh bag and lunch box all of which have been graciously donated by the JelliFish Kids.
The comfort kit also contains an item that has already made a lasting impact, a Bell Fund blanket. Generously donated by “The Bell” Fund, Judy Martin wanted to extend her initiative in providing all newly diagnosed cancer patients with a comfort kit to include pediatrics. A cancer survivor herself, Judy knows just how meaningful it is to have a warm blanket wrapping you in love on some of the toughest days and nights of your hard fought battle.

Staff, nurses, doctors and volunteers were joined by Linda Del Perico, a representative from the JelliFish Kids, Judy Martin, founder of “The Bell” Fund and Norman and Lorena Cook, parents of Sarah Cook. They were honoured to be there to help distribute the Sarah’s Comfort Kits to all the patients.
