For more than 25 years, TD has been a generous supporter of the patients and families of the Children’s. A long-time sponsor of the Nicolas W. Matossian Junior Community Award of Excellence and the Ball for the Children’s, TD has demonstrated exceptional commitment and loyalty to the Hospital.
TD pledged one million dollars to the Best Care for Children campaign, which includes $500,000 to help build the new Montreal Children’s Hospital on the Glen site as well as a $500,000 commitment to the future of pediatric care through the TD Post-Doctoral Fellowships in Child Health Research Excellence. Over ten years, a new researcher will receive an annual grant of $50,000 to help find new treatments and cures for childhood diseases. “TD supports post-doctoral fellowships to bright young researchers because we have faith in the excellent work carried out by the Children’s Research Institute and because we know the value of investing in innovative ideas,” says David Pinsonneault, Senior Vice-President, TD Business Banking, and Co-Chair, Quebec Market, TD Bank Group.
MCH researchers honoured
Two talented researchers at the Montreal Children’s Hospital have already received a TD fellowship: Dr. Maira Morena-Garcia and Dr. Denise Bechet. Dr. Bechet is a member of Dr. Nada Jabado’s team studying pediatric glioblastomas, a rare but devastating cancer of the brain that is quite different from glioblastomas that occur in adults.
