A message from the committee
Thank you 61,939 times for your help and support of the Children’s tiniest patients!
Tiny Survivors would not have been a success without the help of those who donated, participated or supported our cause during this difficult year. It is thanks to YOU that our NICU patients may continue to receive the specialized care that they need to live a full life.
On behalf of the Tiny Survivors committee, Karen Aziz, Luciano D’Iorio, Helen Wolkowicz, Maria Calderone, Stam Conidaris, Samantha Singer, Robin Petrogiannis, Julia MacIntosh and Jessica MacIntosh, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Tiny Survivors Keeps the Cause at Heart
The Children’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) accounts for a third of its beds, and cares for the province’s sickest, tiniest babies, half of whom are born in other hospitals.
Your support will help to ensure the gold-standard of care in the NICU, 24 hours per day, 365 days a year by funding the training these nurses require in the continually evolving field of neonatal medicine.
“We have a unit that includes 52 beds, with 900 admissions per year,” explained Neonatologist Dr. Thérèse Perreault at last year’s event. “It’s a difficult situation for parents to see their premature babies on life support. This fund has allowed us to purchase much needed equipment, but most of all it has contributed to education for our staff, so we can be better prepared to treat these babies and react to emergency situations. This level of excellent care would not be possible without private donations, such as those coming to us from Tiny Survivors.”
