Wow! 1,358,000 Thank You's for the Radiothon

The 16th annual Caring for Kids Radiothon was on Wednesday, May 29. 20 families from across Quebec shared stories of hope, strength and courage with listeners.

Many of you responded to the call and showed your support as the excitement mounted in the P.K. Subban Atrium at the Children's. One of the highlights was when Madison returned to the microphone to tell us her leukemia was in remission; she was back, with hair! Another was hearing Liam and his mom talk about his recent heart transplant, or when Brenda and Mark showed great courage telling us about the loss of their baby Gabrielle. We sincerely thank these families who took the time to come to the Hospital, some very early, to share their moving stories!

Your immense generosity has even spread to patients' rooms! Your calls raised $1,358,000 for the hospital's most urgent needs. Thank you!
