The Foundation asks you to think about children whose illness won’t be taking a holiday this summer… and give generously.
This is where my path in life actually started. I was born here. My children were born here. I’ve never strayed too far from Sainte-Justine.
Thank you to our front-line donors
Since March 12 and until the pandemic is over, front-line donors are joining forces with Sainte-Justine and banding together during this time of crisis, arming our teams of caregivers so they can respond as effectively as possible in an emergency. Ultimately there will be 50,000 of them.
In these crazy times, we are proud to be front-line donors and to count on the support of our community. Because Sainte-Justine patients and researchers need it. We are privileged witnesses to this.
For Father’s Day, Madeleine would like you to express your love and appreciation for your own dad with a donation to Sainte-Justine.
COVID-19 forced us to confinement to protect ourselves and to protect the others. For me, confinement has been a part of my life since I was a child. And for my health, it will remain so for as long as I am not protected.
Like a Samurai
Today, I’d like to pay tribute to that little insurance policy we all know as Sainte-Justine and its Research Centre. I want parents who end up in a situation like ours to know that research is a powerful source of hope – something that can ease their pain and even bring their child back from the brink.
Using Plasma to Treat Patients with COVID-19
What if the plasma taken from patients who have recovered from COVID-19 could be used to transfer the necessary antibodies to someone currently battling the virus? That’s the question Dr. Philippe Bégin, a clinician-researcher at Sainte-Justine, asked a few months ago. It became the impetus to carry out a clinical trial jointly with such partners as the Jewish General Hospital, CHUM, McMaster University and the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Héma-Québec and Canadian Blood Services.
