“We can do hard things.
I can do hard things.
We can face hard things.
I can face hard things.”
This is the current soundtrack of my life.
We are calling on you , to do something hard.
We are building an army of moms, dads and caregivers, with one shared goal - to raise $1 Million by the end of 2021 to help build a new SickKids - designed to better serve patients and families. This will include spaces devoted to parents and caregivers - spaces where we can feel calm, relief and rest, when we are in a time of crisis.
We invite you to suit up. The battle field for sick kids is lined with brave warriors, barring the
wounds, rocking their beads, and we will join them.
This is an act of radical generosity to support the most vulnerable kids, with the beacon of hope
that is SickKids. The new space will ‘uplift and inspire from the daily grind that is parenting a sick child.
We are SO committed to this venture, and we cannot wait to see what we dream up.
We want you!

WHEN SICKKIDS WAS BUILT on the current site 70 years ago, it was a state-of-the-art hospital reflecting the latest medical practices and technologies. Today, parts of the building don’t meet modern building codes. SickKids is a world-renowned paediatric hospital, but you wouldn’t know it to look at our clinical spaces: a neonatal intensive care unit where anguished families are crammed five to a room. An emergency department overrun and threadbare. Hallways that double as storage closets. A hospital at a crossroads.
As our facilities deteriorate, Toronto’s population grows—along with demand for our services. At the same time, our patient caseloads have become more chronic and complex. Because of Medical and technological advances, more kids are surviving serious illness. Our next challenge is how to help them thrive long-term. But we can’t do that in a 1949 building. Without a new hospital, we simply won’t be able to meet the needs of future generations.
Every aspect of the new clinical campus will be designed to better serve patients and families. Rooms will be bigger, brighter, and offer more privacy and comforts. Technology will be woven into all aspects of care: hospital-wide electronic records, portable equipment that comes to the bedside, modular rooms that can convert to any kind of clinic: orthopaedic one day, diabetes the next. The keyword is adaptable. We’re building a hospital for the next 70 years.
