A talented young patient gives back!

Jean-Gilles Gadoury

On Valentine’s Day, my 9-year-old son wanted to spread some love for sick children who currently stay at the Children’s, like he did when he had acute leukemia. Jean-Gilles was then fighting for his life. Everyday, our anxiety increased: the only way to save his life was a bone marrow transplant and he needed a compatible donor. During the fall of 2014, we contacted the media to help us find a donor. We were speechless when we learned the intervention was about to become a reality. Jean-Gilles celebrated his first transplant anniversary in January and was able to return …

Even now, as a pediatrician at the Montreal Children's Hospital since 1988 and Division Head of the hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) since 2003, Doctor Perreault can't think of anything she would want to do other than practice medicine.

Doug’s Story

After reading the story about little Massimo in Le Children magazine, I felt it was time for me to share my son’s story. Douglas was a born on November 25th 1985 with the same condition as Massimo: “Transposition of the great arteries (TGA)”. The day Doug was born we were left with a million questions. Why was he born with this condition? How many children are born this way? What did we do to cause this? And the biggest question: will he grow up? It was not until I was exposed to the Neonatal Unit of the Children’s that I came to …

Interview with Dr. Mirko Gilardino

Mirko Gilardino

Dr. Mirko Gilardino is a plastic surgeon and the director of the H.B. Williams Craniofacial and Cleft Surgery Unit at the Montreal Children’s Hospital. When did it become clear that you wanted to work with children? I always knew I wanted to work in a surgical specialty. During my studies at McGill, by a fortunate coincidence, I was put into the pediatric plastic surgery unit headed by Dr. Bruce Williams. Being from a family of artists, the artistry of the approach to this type of work really struck home for me. I became passionate about the idea of changing the facial structure, …
