Congratulations to the Netto family and friends for raising $11,400 through their Band For Cancer backyard party!
The Toronto SBST has raised over $24,000 for Sick Kids Hospital in 2015 … congratulations to all!
The combined efforts of the West Island Lakers through the All-Star Weekend, Montreal SBST, StrikeOut Cancer Family Bowling (Montreal) and Netto Family and Friends Backyard Party have helped us reach our multi-year goal of raising $100,000 for two operating tables for the new Montreal Children’s Hospital. Congratulations to all and our deepest thanks to all sponsors and donors.



The Sian Bradwell Fund was started in 1986, to help children with cancer and their families by purchasing medical equipment for diagnosis, treatment and research. While the Oncology is the main recipient of funds raised, equipment may also be purchased for other departments where children with cancer are treated.

The main objective of the Fund is to purchase medical equipment and other items deemed necessary for better diagnosis and treatment of children with cancer. Upon special request, the Fund may purchase items other than medical equipment for compassionate reasons. Items purchased in the past includes special mattresses to ease the pain of children in the terminal stages, and wigs for children who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy.

All activities are conducted by volunteers, and 100% of all donations go towards purchasing medical equipment for the hospitals. Income tax receipts for donations are provided by the hospitals.

history of the fund

Sian (pronounced "SHAHN", hers is a Welsh Gaelic name) was diagnosed on May 1st, 1985 as having a form of cancer called 'primitive neuroectodermal tumour' in her liver, spine and foot. Doctors thought the cancer had started in her pancreas and spread through her bloodstream.

Shortly after Sian's death in 1986, the first private donation to the Montreal Children's Hospital was made in Sian's name. During the next four years, many private donations were made by individuals, as well as work and sports group donations through the family and friends of Ken and Sharon Bradwell.
