About Sarah’s Fund for Cedars

Sarah’s Fund for Cedars was started in 2001 by Sarah Cook, an eight-year-old girl battling Ewing’s Sarcoma who was determined to make it a little easier for the other children on the floor by buying new pillows.

For over 23 years, Sarah’s Fund has gained momentum and continues to support the efforts of the professionals who make a positive difference in the lives of hundreds of children and their families every year. The fund supports the pressing needs of the Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Division by providing the best care to improve the quality of life for young cancer patients on Sarah’s Floor, at the Montreal Children’s Hospital.

Sarah’s Floor, the Hematology-Oncology In-Patient Ward serves critically ill patients who suffer from cancer and leukemia. These young patients have specific needs and often experience long-term hospital stays, which can be difficult and stressful.

Thanks to the enthusiastic giving of our Montreal community corporations and through special events, Sarah’s Fund for Cedars has raised over $14 million. The Fund addresses the pressing needs on Sarah’s Floor, with positive results including:

Social Services
Pet Therapy
Dr. Clown

Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders - C17 Council
PROFYLE Clinical Research
