Only a few months ago, Milan, an elite athlete, found himself on a waiting list for a bone marrow transplant. Today, he is an ambassador for the 2022 Sainte-Justine Winter Triathlon.
Starting today, you can join our province-wide chain of caring by helping light up the Sainte-Justine Tree of Lights. Together, we can spark hope for the children and families of Sainte-Justine.
The CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation and The Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation are joining forces to express their heartfelt appreciation to Tobi Lütke and Fiona McKean, co-founders of the Thistledown Foundation, for their tremendous $26 million donation in support of 13 children’s hospitals across Canada, through Canada’s Children’s Hospital Foundations (CCHF) and Children’s Healthcare Canada. This game-changing investment translates to $2 million each for Montreal’s two main acute care pediatric hospitals.
It was the year 2000. A then four-year-old Sébastien found himself in the Sainte-Justine trauma care unit with a serious cut to his right wrist. The experience left a lasting impression on him, his family and the adult he would grow into. So much so, in fact, that 21 years later, he decided to make arrangements for a planned gift to the Foundation through a life insurance policy. In so doing, he is paving the way for the next generation of committed young people.

Giving the Gift of the Future
As we celebrate National Philanthropy Day, we would like to thank you for making hope come alive for today’s children and the adults they will become. They are our future. Let’s continue to be theirs.
Guardian of the Treasure
Édouard, my bright, shining boy, you were the wings that lifted us up. For you, we would’ve flown all the way to the moon. I like to think that these wings will eventually lead us to the answer that unlocks your treasure. We will use them to keep flying, in search of our quest, only differently than before.
