Sian Bradwell Fund For Children With Cancer

Sian Bradwell Fund For Children With Cancer

The Sian Bradwell Fund was started in 1986, to help children with cancer and their families by purchasing medical equipment for diagnosis, treatment and research.  While the Oncology is the main recipient of funds raised, equipment may also be purchased for other departments where children with cancer are treated.Each year, the Hospital prepares a priority medical equipment list, from which the Advisory Board ["Board of Directors"] selects items to be purchased.  In addition to funding such items as intravenous infusion pumps, pain control pumps, wheelchairs and equipment required for daily treatment and regular checkups, the Fund has purchased items such as:

- Cavitron (Ultrasonic Aspirator) (cost: $135,000)
- Alphamaquet operating table (cost: $90,000)
- Microwave tissue processor (cost: $40,000)
- Intra-operative MRI (cost: $10 million, to which the SBF contributed $10,000)
- Cell counter (cost: $115,000)
- Wheelchairs, weighing scales, intravenous infusion pumps, pain control pumps, and so on

In addition, we may be asked to purchase special items for compassionate purposes (e.g. gel mattresses for the comfort of terminal patients - cost $3,000 each).Funds are raised through sports events and donations. The events are always fun... come and join our team of supporters!For further information about Sian or our fun, fun, fun fundraising activities, please see http://www.sianbradwell.com/sian/

Can't tell you how much I miss getting together with my boys from the softball team at the (pre-pandemic) Annual Sian Bradwell Tournament and our local CPH Softball Tournament on the West Island. Hopefully we can raise some money here in hopes of replacing a fraction of the money that would have been raised had the tournaments been played. Love to Sharon and all the volunteers. We miss you.»
