Dr. Terry Sigman

We asked her about her dedication to treating children and how her drive to become a doctor started at home. Q: When did you first know you wanted to be a doctor?

Why we chose to share our wedding


As teachers, my wife and I loved the idea of sharing our wedding day with The Children’s. After giving it long thought, we decided that a traditional wedding favour was not for us. We found out that it was possible to make a donation instead of buying wedding favours after my (now) wife Candice went to a wedding show and met with someone from The Children’s, who explained to her that many couples were choosing to make a gift to a cause they care about, rather than giving wedding favours to their guests. The kids sealed it We saw The Children’s represented at yet …

A gift to remember Lori and Michael

Michael Daniel Sipos- 1985

During my 35 years as a teacher and as an administrator, I had the pleasure of knowing thousands of children. Kids are incredibly precious and require special care – the kind of care that is available at the Montreal Children’s Hospital. I knew this fact as an educator, but I also experienced it first-hand as a parent. Between the late 1970s and the mid-1980s, the Montreal Children’s Hospital was my family’s second home as we spent countless hours there with our two children, Lori and Michael. Looking back, those nine years were a blur. But I will always remember and be …
