The Amazing Chase across Asia

1743509_1439162629651162_29421816_n

As an emergency physician at the Montreal Children's Hospital, I see parents in distress on a daily basis. Their child needs to be treated in intensive care; sometimes requiring special care that is made possible through the generosity of benefactors. While I do my job with passion and dedication, one day I told myself that I could even do more. Thus an exciting and innovative fundraising idea came to me. Let's see if it could be a good fit for you: Have you ever traveled to a beautiful country and regretted not mingling enough with locals? Do you like a challenge? Are you the …

The fabulous “miracle” of the Children’s

Gabriel-smile

There are some things you cannot explain. Call it a coincidence, an accident, or maybe even luck or fate. But every now and again you come across a “miracle” - a patient, who against all odds, survives and thrives even when everything was stacked against them. On June 4, 2013, Dr. Sherif Emil, a surgeon at the Montreal Children’s Hospital, had just begun his week on call, when he received an urgent page: the prognosis did not look good for a child in the Emergency department. Dr. Emil rushed to the crash room and found little Gabriel Kassouf surrounded by 10 …

Justin’s happy ending

Justin

You may have heard the story of Justin’s happy-ending. With complications like an umbilical cord around the neck or a placental abruption, the baby stops breathing and doctors must deliver emergency care to revive him. We call this “asphyxia,” when the brain doesn’t get enough blood or oxygen at birth. Did you know that these complications occur in about 3% of births? Evidence shows that first-aid measures, while essential, are not enough to prevent brain damage. That’s why babies like Justin are rushed to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Montreal Children’s Hospital to receive therapeutic hypothermia treatment. Simply put, therapeutic hypothermia consists …

A diagnosis that changed their lives – for the better

Bloom Kids

One year ago today, we received a phone call that changed everything for the best. After years of anguish: a diagnosis. Both of our children were admitted to the Montreal Children’s Hospital after eight days of life, after losing too much weight. Gabi spent almost a year as an in-patient, trying to gain weight. Benji never got as sick, because we knew what worked for Gabi and acted quickly. They both had low protein, low vitamins, low iron and anemia. We juggled, we balanced, we struggled, but we made it work. They had every test in the book, more than once, …
