THE SIAN BRADWELL FUND
FOR CHILDREN WITH CANCER
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, or where there is an especially urgent need, for other areas of the hospitals.
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.
Sian Bradwell Endowment Funds (McMaster Children’s, Montreal Children’s and SickKids Hospitals) have been established so that we can continue purchasing medical equipment for the hospitals in perpetuity.
