Building on Excellence Honour Roll


Childhood is a time of tremendous activity – of learning, playing, exploring and growing. Childhood is also the time when we start to connect the dots between life experiences that will create our deeply personal world view. During this time we learn about the importance of friends and family, about giving and sharing, our likes and dislikes, and our interests and aspirations. The pattern that begins to emerge during childhood comes to shape our lives.

As supporters of BC Children’s Hospital, Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children and the Child & Family Research Institute, you are helping to shape the lives of thousands of young people. In many ways, the care they receive thanks to you will influence who they become. In the pages of this Activity Report, our 2012-13 annual report, we invite you to reflect on the pastimes of your childhood while learning about the wonderful things your generous support has made possible and hearing from a few of the children whose lives you have touched. Through the activities, images and adventures of our patients, caregivers and donors, let us show you how your contributions to BC Children’s Hospital change lives.

Report from the President and Chair Every year individuals and organizations from across BC and the Yukon step forward to support BC Children’s Hospital, Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children and the Child & Family Research Institute (CFRI). Our 2012-13 fiscal year was no exception, as 116,126 people made gifts to support the urgent and ongoing needs of these facilities and our $200-million capital campaign, the Campaign for BC Children. Our donors and volunteers have made tremendous contributions since we launched the capital campaign in 2008. The fact is that even as we raise money to support the construction of the new hospital and the delivery of pediatric care to children in communities around the province, we must also meet the needs of those children who require our help today. With your support, BC Children’s Hospital Foundation provided $58.8 million in grants and contributions to the hospital, Sunny Hill and CFRI last year. That’s an increase of $8.5 million over the year prior. Does the extra funding you provide make a difference? You bet it does. Consider that, thanks to just one of the many pieces of equipment you helped purchase, the hospital’s pathology staff can now identify bacteria causing a blood infection in 20 minutes once a sample is

ready. A few months ago this took 36 hours! The greater speed made possible using this leading-edge technology will save lives. Your annual donations have a direct impact on the care children receive at the hospital and at Sunny Hill, where child development and rehabilitation staff work with children to help them reach their full potential. And over $9 million a year goes to the CFRI, ensuring that children treated at the hospital – for conditions ranging from diabetes to cancer to cerebral palsy – benefit from both outstanding clinical care and targeted research programs. Miracle Weekend is our main source of annual funding. In June 2012 we reported Miracle Weekend donations of over $17.9 million, including over $10 million in undesignated donations. These funds are vital to our

r es ep id or en t t fr an om d t ch he ai r pr

ability to meet the annual needs of children at the hospital. Your donations support research, equipment purchases, and health promotion and education initiatives. A year ago we reported donations to our capital campaign of $142.5 million. Since then individuals and organizations have contributed another $30.6 million to support construction of the new hospital and Child Health BC, steering us down the home stretch. On page 51 of this report we have included a chart that indicates how all money dispensed by the foundation is used. As always, we worked hard in 2012-13 to keep our expenses low and maintained a cost of fundraising of under 20 per cent.

In 2012 your generous donations touched the lives of 81,394 children and youth who made 216,509 visits to BC Children’s Hospital. Your donations, whether to the capital campaign or to help us meet today’s needs, are driving the profound change that is underway at BC Children’s Hospital and in the delivery of pediatric care across the province. Thanks to you, children from across BC and the Yukon are able to experience the many fun and enriching activities that should define any childhood. Thank you for your support.

2012 /2013 bc children’s hospital foundation activity report


Report from the Campaign Chair When we launched the Campaign for BC Children in 2008 we could only imagine the impact this initiative would have on the campus of BC Children’s Hospital and on the lives of children from BC and the Yukon. Today the hospital grounds are alive with construction activity as buildings associated with this immense redevelopment project take shape and site preparation for the construction of the new hospital moves into full swing. Next year we will celebrate the opening of the 49-space Djavad Mowafaghian Childcare Centre and new patient-family housing on site. We will also witness the long-anticipated demolition of a large part of the old Shaughnessy building and the beginning of the construction of the new BC Children’s Hospital. In the spring of 2014, when the team that will build the new hospital is selected, we will see the final plans for a children’s health-care centre unlike any other in Canada. These are the milestones so many people have worked hard to achieve – and that you have made possible with your donations.

The people of British Columbia and the Yukon have demonstrated exceptional generosity in supporting our campaign. As of July 2013 over 79,000 people and organizations had contributed more than $173 million. In the past year several donors have come forward with leadership gifts of $1 million or more, including the Milan & Maureen Ilich Foundation, which contributed $5 million, building on a $1-million gift made at the outset of the campaign; The Quail Rock Foundation with a gift of $1,205,100; and Jason and Emily Ko and Family and Viva Pharmaceutical Inc. contributed $1 million, as did the Yu Family and Karen Flavelle, Purdys Chocolatier.

“Teck is committed to helping build healthy, vibrant communities where our employees live and work. That’s why we’re proud to support BC Children’s Hospital and the expert care it provides to children from across British Columbia.”

– Don Lindsay, President & CEO of Teck Resources Limited

The generosity of these donors, and of the many others who have made gifts of any size, is helping to transform the delivery of specialized care to children in BC. This transformation is already having an impact on those children treated at the hospital and, thanks to the activities of Child Health BC, on many others who are treated in communities across the province. As we look forward to celebrating the conclusion of the Campaign for BC Children and seeing the new hospital materialize, I can’t help but reflect on the thousands of individuals, organizations and communities that have stepped forward to ensure the children of BC and the Yukon will have access to an exceptional standard of care in the decades ahead. It is impossible to think about the commitment and compassion of our donors without also thinking of the many children and families I have met whose lives have been touched by the hospital and the generosity of others. Thank you for supporting the Campaign for BC Children.

The New BC Children’s Hospital The new BC Children’s Hospital is being designed with the future in mind – as the health needs of children change and technology evolves, so too must the environment in which children and families find the care they need. The new seven-storey hospital will have an inviting exterior and, at almost 50,000 square metres, will be more than twice the size of our current facility. All patient rooms will be single-occupancy, offering life-saving medical equipment and space for parents to stay comfortably – all at the child’s bedside. In 2006, Teck Resources Limited became the largest donor in the hospital’s history, pledging $25 million to name the Acute Care Centre – the core building of the new Children’s Hospital, which will house services and facilities ranging from cancer care and surgery to emergency and intensive care. Children’s Cancer Centre The Children’s Cancer Centre will be dedicated to treating children with blood disorders and cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma. With 27 inpatient beds, plus an outpatient day program for kids receiving treatment or follow-up care while living at home, the Children’s Cancer Centre will bring programs currently spread across three floors to one location. The 2,300-square-metre floor will provide an environment conducive to family participation in care, with amenities such as kitchens and laundry facilities to enable parents to stay with their child 24 hours a day.

10

Intensive care neighbourhoods More than 1,000 of BC’s kids came through our Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) last year. These children, suffering from the most severe illnesses and injuries, spent an average of 4.3 days in the cramped quarters of BC Children’s PICU. Plans for the new 1,861-square-metre PICU divide it into four “neighbourhoods” that can each be isolated to help reduce hospitalacquired infections, promote healing and provide a quiet refuge for families. One of these neighbourhoods will be a Cardiac Intensive Care Unit, staffed with nurses specialized in caring for children with heart conditions. The new PICU will have 28 beds, six more than the current unit, each in a spacious room outfitted with the most advanced technologies for monitoring and life support. Operating room redesign When the current hospital was designed, planners believed that the operating room (OR) of the future would require less space. Today, we see precisely the opposite: equipment and imaging devices play a greater-than-ever role and surgical teams of 10 or more are not

2012 /2013 bc children’s hospital foundation activity report


uncommon. In the new hospital the smallest OR will be larger than the biggest OR in the current hospital.

and staff time. Children will return home faster and caregivers will be able to spend more time with the children who need them most.

Two of the ORs will have a shared “garage” for a CT scanner that can easily be moved into either OR depending on where it is needed. This unique setup will benefit patients who require multiple procedures and who today must sometimes be wheeled from one part of the hospital to another during or between procedures. These innovative ORs will enable children to remain under the same anesthesia while one or more procedures are performed, potentially shortening the length of time that they have to spend in hospital.

Under construction Construction of the Djavad Mowafaghian Childcare Centre, which will provide childcare services for hospital staff and the surrounding community, is underway. The centre is scheduled to open in 2014. A groundbreaking event for the facility was held on November 22, 2012, to honour Dr. Mowafaghian, who pledged $4 million to the project, bringing his total contributions to BC Children’s Hospital to over $10 million.

New Anesthetic Care Unit The thousands of children who require anesthesia each year are currently seen in two different locations before and after procedures ranging from a simple imaging scan to abdominal surgery. In the new BC Children’s Hospital, three Anesthetic Care Units will allow children and families to be admitted to and discharged from the same area, promoting continuity of care and eliminating the need for families to transfer between two environments. As often as possible, patients will return to the same room to recover, and see the same nurses before and after surgery, enhancing the consistency and quality of care by giving families familiarity with the people as well as the place. Creating a Clinical Decision Unit A newly created Clinical Decision Unit (CDU) in the new hospital will allow Emergency patients to stay up to 24 hours for observation or to wait for test results without having to be admitted. Once admitted, a child must wait to be discharged by a doctor, which usually means an overnight stay. The CDU will help families avoid unnecessary hospital stays for minor injuries and illnesses, freeing bed space

The Clinical Support Building, which houses hospital staff and programs that have moved to make way for demolition of part of the Shaughnessy building and construction of the new hospital, began receiving patients on September 25, 2012. On-site accommodation for out-of-town families is also under construction in the southeast corner of the hospital site; a groundbreaking ceremony for this facility was held on June 7, 2012. It is scheduled to open in the fall of 2013. Blueprints in the making In April 2013 the Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA) selected three teams – Affinity Partnerships, Oak Street Health Partners and Plenary Health – to present their proposed plans for the new hospital. Comprising award-winning architects, builders, financiers and service providers with extensive experience in the construction and maintenance of children’s hospitals in North America, each team will present their plans to the PHSA in the fall and selection of the winning bid will be announced in 2014. Construction of the new BC Children’s Hospital will begin in 2014 and is scheduled for completion by 2018.

Maya Ahuja Holding their newborn for the first time is a moment most mothers cherish. Karm Ahuja had only 30 seconds before her daughter, Maya, was hurried to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Months before Maya was born, Karm and her husband Gary learned through an ultrasound that their baby would have a congenital heart defect called tetralogy of Fallot, and a cleft palate. In October 2010, then four-month-old Maya underwent open-heart surgery. Shortly after the operation Maya’s heart stopped beating. Thankfully, after 22 minutes, the hospital’s caregiving team was able to revive her. Six weeks later she returned home. Today Maya still faces challenges. Since her hospital stay she has been diagnosed with a genetic condition called Cornelia de Lange syndrome, a developmental disorder that affects many parts of her body. As she grows she will require another operation on her heart. Gary and Karm say words can’t describe the gratitude they have for the hospital’s doctors and nurses. They are comforted by the fact that no matter what medical challenges lie ahead for Maya they will not have to face them alone.

Stephanie Carlson and Doug Gordon Everybody likes to back a winner. That’s why making a gift to the Campaign for BC Children was a natural decision for Stephanie Carlson and Doug Gordon. Each of them has pledged $1 million to the campaign, fulfilling what they felt was a personal responsibility to give back to a place that has changed the lives of many British Columbians – including their own. BC Children’s has been a part of nearly every phase of Stephanie’s life, from the loss of her daughter, Joanna, to her years of volunteering for the hospital. In fact, Stephanie’s and Doug’s contributions go far beyond their financial commitments; both have been involved with the hospital as volunteers and on BC Children’s Hospital Foundation’s Board of Directors for many years. The couple has watched the expansion of the hospital’s programs over time – including its successes in clinical care and the growth of its research activities – and truly understands that these positive results are made possible through philanthropy. As leadership donors, they are proud to help support other parents across the province and ensure families continue to benefit from having a world-class hospital for their children, right here in British Columbia.

“At the Overwaitea Food Group, we’re committed to the health and wellness of kids and families in BC. We’re grateful for the amazing support of our local communities, team members, customers and supplier partners who have all played a key role in making this fundraising success possible.”

– Darrell Jones, President of Overwaitea Food Group

Reaching Children Across the Province More than 39 per cent of the province’s one million children live outside of the Lower Mainland. With only one children’s hospital serving our vast province, a collaborative effort from within the health sector and child-serving ministries is essential to building a strong health system for BC’s children. In 2005 BC Children’s Hospital established Child Health BC, a network of the province’s five regional health authorities, the Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA), health professionals and care facilities, to ensure children have access to a consistent standard of health care, no matter where in the province they live. The donor-funded program took off in 2007 when Overwaitea Food Group pledged $20 million in support. Since then, thousands of BC’s children and families have benefited from Child Health BC’s initiatives. Taking a concussion toolkit across British Columbia In partnership with the BC Injury Research and Prevention Unit and with support from the Ministry of Health, Child Health BC is ready to launch a new concussion awareness training toolkit (CATT) across BC and nationally. The goal of the web-based toolkit is to standardize the care of children with concussions by providing easily accessible resources for health practitioners and parents. Good concussion management is crucial to decreasing the risk of brain damage. There are many standards and resources on concussions available; however, only CATT has been implemented with a national promotion strategy. Child health framework and service planning tool Child Health BC, with its partners, achieved provincial consensus on a unified framework

and vision for children’s health across the province. This framework uses a “tiers of service” approach that outlines the various levels of pediatric care – from community health promotion right through to the most complex, highly specialized care provided at Children’s Hospital. The “tiers of service” concept lets all health authorities assess themselves using the same mechanism, giving them confidence that their services meet the standard. In 2012, Child Health BC worked with partners to complete the service planning module for pediatric cancer services, palliative care, and emergency care for children. These modules lay the foundation for provincial service planning, which is the next step. BC is on the leading edge of this kind of work in Canada, and BC’s children are the first to benefit. New staffing to keep up with children’s and families’ needs In December 2012 Dr. Maureen O’Donnell, executive director of Child Health BC, and Mary Lou Matthews, in her new role as provincial lead, Network Operations, welcomed two new staff members. Jennifer Scarr is provincial lead, Health Promotion, Prevention and Primary Care, focusing on initiatives that help to keep children healthy at an early age and prevent injuries. Michele Fryer is provincial lead, Regional Specialty and Subspecialty Services. She is helping to expand the reach of subspecialty clinics to communities throughout BC and playing a key role in implementing the “tiers of service” initiative.

Ensuring standardized care for BC’s children Over 1,000 of BC’s health professionals and care providers have participated in Child Health BC’s standards of care workshops and collaboration meetings. These meetings provide a valuable opportunity for policyand decision-makers from all six health authorities to network, share knowledge and develop best practices in caring for BC’s children. Findings from the workshops are further shared via Child Health BC’s website, with reports available for download by care providers and families. Caring for kids closer to home Through Child Health BC, Children’s Hospital schedules more than 200 regional subspecialty clinic days per year throughout the province. The clinics help to ensure children – especially those who live in rural communities – are not left untreated and that they can receive adequate follow-up care closer to home. This past year, Child Health BC and the Division of Neurology at BC Children’s launched a pilot program for a provincial telehealth follow-up clinic for children and youth with epilepsy. Dr. Mary Connolly and the neurology team from Children’s Hospital have had numerous epilepsy follow-up sessions with patients, their families and care providers in remote locations via video-conferencing, sparing families a trip to the hospital. In 2011, TELUS completed a $5 million pledge to support Child Health BC’s telehealth projects. Child Health BC is working with PHSA telehealth to identify the best ways to integrate this technology to support regional specialty and subspecialty services.

Debra Vincent Debra Vincent of Vancouver Island understands the importance of supporting a hospital that cares for all of BC’s children. Today, she shares her gratitude by making contributions to the hospital, and hopes other patient families who have the means to pay it forward will do the same. Deb believes that without the exceptional care that her son, Doug Jr., received 30 years ago, he would not be here today. Deb is the proud grandmother of Doug Jr.’s two beautiful daughters and, together, this multigenerational family donates significantly to the hospital that gave Doug Jr. a second chance. Deb still vividly remembers the many days spent away from her home on the Island while Doug Jr. was at Children’s and her husband, Doug Sr., remained at work. One day, without money for food to eat, a hospital volunteer offered her money to buy some food – it was an act of kindness she remembers to this day. By supporting the hospital and nurturing philanthropy within her own family, Deb is giving back to a place that shaped her family’s future, and encouraging others to follow her lead.

Ali Brock Nikki Brock’s daughter, Ali, is the apple of her eye. The 21-monthold loves to blow kisses and give hugs, and playing with Ali is Nikki’s favourite part of the day. But at night, when she has a moment to herself, Nikki can’t help but think about the many challenges that lie ahead for her child. Born with only one vessel to pump blood out of her heart, instead of two, Ali had her first open-heart surgery when she was only five days old. Cardiac surgeons at BC Children’s Hospital attached a donor vessel to her heart to help her survive. She’s had two openheart surgeries since – one of them lasting more than 13 hours. Ali and Nikki travel from Nanaimo to BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver every few months for care. Though the trips can be long and tiring Nikki can’t say enough about the hospital’s caregivers, who “are incredible and truly care about children’s well-being.” Because the donor vessel won’t grow as she does, Ali will require surgeries throughout her life to replace her vessel. Nikki hopes that every surgery in the future will go smoothly for Ali and that she will continue to be happy and healthy.

Caring for Kids The health-care needs of children are changing. Children admitted to the hospital today are much sicker than those typically admitted in the past, and require more complex care, more often. Outpatient care is on the rise, allowing children to return home every day during their treatment or following day surgery. In fact, children across BC and the Yukon made 128,917 visits to BC Children’s outpatient clinics in 2012 alone. The hospital admitted an additional 8,259 inpatients who stayed an average of 7.6 days for specialized treatment and monitoring. The delivery of care must always progress, in practice and philosophy, to keep pace with patients’ changing needs and ensure they continue to receive excellent care. Our specialized medical teams are meeting that challenge and rank among the best in the world, providing innovative and ever-evolving treatments for BC’s children. Stellar anesthesia care The role of anesthesiology in today’s hospital is much different than in the past. Among our medical professionals, the Anesthesia team crosses one of the largest numbers of disciplines. The work of anesthesiologists takes place in and beyond the operating rooms. Their expertise is required to help children cope with pain, remain calm or stay asleep in the PICU, and for simple procedures

20

like routine dental exams or CT scans during which young or developmentally challenged children cannot sit still. The Department of Pediatric Anesthesia is also leading a renaissance in monitoring capabilities and pain management, gaining new knowledge of how the drugs used in their profession affect children while looking at the social factors that enhance a child’s recovery from medication side effects. Leading the heart to health BC’s children made 8,100 visits to the hospital last year for cardiac care ranging from treatments for the 437 babies born in BC with cardiac conditions to a heart transplant for a pre-teen boy. Last January, 12-year-old Andrew Westerlund became the first patient at BC Children’s Hospital to use a Berlin heart.

2012 /2013 bc children’s hospital foundation activity report


A Berlin heart is an artificial heart about the size of a small refrigerator that pumps blood for patients while they wait for a transplant. Andrew was hooked up to the Berlin heart for five days before a donor heart was available. He immediately went back into surgery and has since made a remarkable recovery. Andrew’s procedure is one of over 300 heart operations performed by Children’s cardiac surgeons each year, the majority of which are open-heart surgeries. Almost half of all open-heart surgeries at BC Children’s are performed on children under a year old. Outstanding work in orthopedics Our pediatric orthopedic surgeons performed 1,165 operations for children with back, bone and musculoskeletal disorders last year. These include conditions like scoliosis, broken bones and club foot. Among the team’s greatest accomplishments is its ability to manage over 12,000 visits from patients every year – one of the largest numbers of patient visits to a hospital department. Teenagers with severe back deformations have their scoliosis curvatures dramatically reduced through advanced back surgery. Babies with club foot are now treated with Botox injections rather than through painful and invasive surgeries. Over 100 patients a day are assessed and treated – straightened, braced, casted and restored – by the outstanding Department of Orthopedics at BC Children’s.

Constantly improving cancer care The equivalent of six classrooms full of children and adolescents were newly diagnosed with cancer last year. These children were among the 695 babies, children and teenagers admitted for treatment through the hospital’s Oncology/Hematology/Blood and Marrow Transplant Program, and made many of last year’s nearly 10,000 patient visits to our Oncology, Hematology and Hemophilia outpatient clinics. Today, over 80 per cent of these children and youth survive, but not without a cost: the side effects of anti-cancer therapies leave many survivors with health issues associated with their cancer or treatment. Because our childhood cancer specialists are constantly seeking newer treatments that do less harm to young bodies and minds, cure rates for children treated at BC Children’s continually rank among the best in North America. Our cancer and blood disorder treatment programs are leading the international medical community in studies to reduce side effects and improve survival.

Dr. Eleanor Reimer Dr. Eleanor Reimer has a deep-rooted fascination with medicine. As a child, she was hospitalized frequently with a chronic bone infection that required many surgeries. So when she decided to pursue a medical career, she was determined to remember what it was like to be on the “other side.” It was an easy choice for Dr. Reimer to become a pediatric anesthesiologist. After medical school, she knew she wanted to work with children, and to remain in the dynamic environment of the operating rooms and intensive care unit, where she had previously worked as a nurse. Dr. Reimer’s love of children and the OR was put to good use in the planning of the new BC Children’s Hospital. As the former head of the Department of Pediatric Anesthesia at Children’s Hospital, she served on two of the new hospital’s planning teams. She is also a Children’s Circle of Care member, and along with the rest of the Anesthesia team, proudly supports research to ensure anesthesia and pain management continue to improve. For Dr. Reimer, the only thing more satisfying than seeing her donation dollars at work firsthand is working with kids and their families at BC Children’s Hospital.

Marko Marconato Marko Marconato is a tough kid. An avid athlete, the 13-year-old never complained of pain, even after a rough game of hockey. But when a lump on Marko’s bicep became hard and firm, his mom, Paula, knew it was no ordinary sports injury. In January 2012 Marko was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, an extremely rare and aggressive form of bone cancer. He endured many side effects from his anti-cancer drugs: a collapsed lung, open sores inside his mouth and ulcers that required him to be tube-fed, and excruciating burns from the drugs in his bloodstream seeping through the palms of his hands and feet. Doctors first believed amputation was the only option. Then BC Children’s pediatric orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Ken Brown, offered an alternative: in a 20-hour surgery, he removed Marko’s fibula and part of his hip, and used them to save the boy’s arm. Being an athlete has been a great benefit to Marko in physiotherapy – he knows how to work hard to reach his goals. He still requires checkups at BC Children’s every three months, but Marko’s parents are thankful his chemotherapy is done and the cancer is gone.

Harnessing Technology Innovation and collaboration are commonplace at BC Children’s Hospital. As leaders in pediatric health care our hospital’s caregiving teams use the latest medical technologies to complement their expertise in research and clinical care – with the goal of providing the least invasive treatments and most timely care for children. Ensuring kids get the right antibiotic quickly In April 2013, thanks to donor funding, our hospital’s pathology lab received an advanced matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight (MALDI-TOF) device. The use of MALDI to identify the life-threatening bacteria that affect patients represents the modern standard in pathology. The addition of MALDI has revolutionized the hospital laboratory’s work flow and efficiency, and will enable caregivers to respond faster and prescribe treatment and medication more accurately than ever before. Since the arrival of MALDI our pathologists have been able to reduce the time it takes to identify bacteria from 36 hours to just 20 minutes. This dramatic improvement has life-saving implications: because many of our patients already have an underlying medical condition – like cystic fibrosis or cancer – timely treatment is of the essence in order to protect them from infections that they cannot fight unassisted. Knowing the

26

exact bacteria causing the infection allows doctors to prescribe the best antibiotic quickly, minimizing the impact of the infection before it takes hold in the body. Children will also have a reduced risk of complications, avoid antibiotics that are inappropriate or less than ideal, and spend less time in the hospital. Minimizing impact through interventional radiology Interventional radiology is another area in which the use of technology has enhanced care for children with medical conditions that may have once required surgery. Interventional radiology involves using medical imaging equipment such as fluoroscopy, ultrasound and CT to perform minimally invasive procedures. These minimally invasive interventional radiology procedures can reduce the child’s recovery time, and, in many cases, make the procedure faster and simpler than traditional surgical options. Interventional radiologists use these imaging tools to navigate needles or catheters (small hollow tubes) into organs, blood vessels, or spaces in the body to treat a variety of conditions and diseases.

2012 /2013 bc children’s hospital foundation activity report


Last year Dr. Manraj Heran, an interventional radiologist at BC Children’s, pioneered the use of intralesional chemotherapy for children. During this procedure, chemotherapy drugs are injected directly into a patient’s cancerous tumour rather than delivered intravenously through the circulatory system. Administering chemotherapy in this way can be easier on the body and enables the patient to leave the hospital on the same day of treatment. Bringing hope to families of children with genetic disease A new technology called chromosomal microarray analysis is giving hope to families in search of a diagnosis for their child. A significant number of children seen at the hospital have conditions with a genetic cause. In many instances, medical geneticists at BC Children’s can diagnose a child by finding changes in genes or chromosomes; this information can help families to understand the implications of the child’s condition or syndrome and point the way to treatment options. Medical geneticists also counsel

families and put them in touch with support services and other families whose children have the same condition. Chromosomal microarray analysis uses specialized chips to detect subtle changes in a patient’s chromosome. Before the technology was available, geneticists examined a patient’s chromosomes under the microscope, and only those chromosomes showing large differences were identifiable. With this new tool geneticists can now detect minute variations in a child’s chromosomes, enabling them to better analyze a child’s chromosomal pattern and potentially diagnose children whose conditions were previously unknown.

Nehal Deo Shalini Deo often wonders where her seven-year-old son Nehal gets his boundless energy. Just 10 days after his latest heart surgery he was already asking Shalini when he could return to school. Born with several complex heart defects, Nehal has had four surgeries at BC Children’s. He rebounded remarkably each time, particularly from his most recent procedure in March 2013, which was less invasive than a traditional open-heart surgery but required the use of staff and equipment in two different procedure rooms at Children’s. Cardiac surgeons prepped Nehal in the operating room and, while he was fully sedated, transferred him to the cardiac catheterization lab, where caregivers could use imaging equipment to guide them as they put a stent in Nehal’s lung artery. While the surgery was a success, the fact that he had to be wheeled through the hospital hallways from one procedure room to another added both time and risk to the surgery. In the new BC Children’s Hospital, children undergoing this type of procedure will be able to receive care in one of two large hybrid procedure rooms, reducing risk and paving the way to a speedy recovery.

A Night of Miracles South Asian culture is a vibrant and bold part of British Columbian life. The South Asian community contributes much more than just cultural diversity to our province. For more than 15 years, this community has been safeguarding the health of the province’s children through its support for BC Children’s Hospital. In 2011 business leaders Robin Dhir (right) and Vik Khanna (left) and others set out to raise $3 million through A Night of Miracles – a black-tie gala that has raised over $1 million since it began four years ago – to support the construction of an interventional radiology room in the new BC Children’s Hospital. Thanks to this commitment to the Campaign for BC Children, A Night of Miracles’ cabinet, committee and supporters are ensuring patients in the new Children’s Hospital will be cared for in procedure rooms designed to meet the advanced imaging needs of interventional radiologists and surgeons alike. Members of the South Asian community raise funds for capital campaign initiatives and annual needs at the hospital through individual and corporate gifts.

Solving Mysteries There is no doubt that research into childhood illnesses has gained incredible momentum on the Children’s Hospital site over the past quarter century. Since its opening in the mid-1980s, the facility now known as the Child & Family Research Institute, or CFRI, has undergone tremendous growth – in size, scope and talent. Research activity has exploded on campus, growing from 145 investigators and trainees in 1987 to well over 200 investigators and more than 300 trainees at the CFRI today. In 25 years the CFRI has expanded from a single building to its current five-structure layout – and the discovery-generating power of its programs attest to the value of the work being undertaken within it. Best treatment when bone marrow fails Our researchers have shown that children with acquired aplastic anemia (AA), a life-threatening illness that causes a person’s bone marrow to stop producing enough new blood cells, can be effectively treated without a bone marrow transplant. Dr. Kirk Schultz and Dr. Rebecca Deyell’s research team reported that a medication-based treatment called immunosuppressive therapy appears as successful as bone marrow transplants in treating AA, helping to reduce the significant potential complications and challenges of finding a compatible donor for the transplant.

Locating the neural roots of dyslexia A CFRI brain imaging study is giving researchers a clearer view of the brain regions involved in dyslexia — a common reading disability that affects about 700,000 Canadian children and teens. The recent study, led by Dr. Deborah Giaschi’s CFRI research group, provides evidence that children with dyslexia, in addition to experiencing challenges with reading, may have difficulty processing complex sounds. Identifying the need for a new meningitis vaccine A CFRI-led study has revealed that a new strain of bacterium that causes meningitis, which can result in life-threatening blood

2012 /2013 bc children’s hospital foundation activity report


infections and swelling in the brain, is now the leading cause of the illness in Canada. Led by Dr. Julie Bettinger of CFRI’s Vaccine Evaluation Centre, the study tracked the incidence of meningitis over time and found that the new strain accounts for about 60 per cent of the 413 cases seen in children, leading researchers to conclude that a new infant vaccine could prevent meningitis infection. Getting a feel for a patient’s condition Soon anesthesiologists could be using their stomachs and backs to monitor an anesthetized patient’s condition. Pediatric anesthesiology researcher Dr. Mark Ansermino’s team is testing a prototype “vibro-tactile” waist belt that silently provides its wearer with a series of differently paced vibrations at four distinct locations on the waist. Each location communicates changes in one of four key physiologic variables. For example, a slow vibration to the right of the navel indicates a drop in peak airway pressure. The belt lets anesthesiologists monitor a child without distractions from beeping alarms and flashing lights meant to alert other OR staff. With only 30 minutes of preparatory training, anesthesiologists at BC Children’s were able to accurately identify signals from the belt 90 per cent of the time.

Obese children’s hearts show early physical damage Dr. Kevin Harris of the Children’s Heart Centre and his research team have found that the physical predictors of heart disease, particularly, the stiffening of the aorta, are already present in the hearts of obese children. About one-third of Canadian children are overweight or obese, making the research important to understanding the long-term health implications of childhood obesity. Genes and immune system shaped by childhood poverty and stress Led by Dr. Michael Kobor, researchers at the Centre for Molecular Medicine & Therapeutics and the CFRI have revealed that childhood poverty is among the experiences that leave an imprint on our genes, and could play a role in immunity. Epigenetics – the study of changes in gene expression – examined a process called DNA methylation, which acts like a dimmer on a light switch, turning genes on or off or setting them somewhere in between. Research showed that methylation patterns were predictive of future immune responses, suggesting that early life experiences could play a role in our response to illness later in life.

Harrison Chong Janet Keall knew that her second son, Harrison, was different from the moment he was born in 2002. As Harrison grew, his anxiety and frustration became more apparent, and Janet knew that he needed help. In January 2011, Janet and eight-year-old Harrison met with Dr. Keith Marriage through the Mental Health Program at BC Children’s Hospital. Janet said that the moment Harrison arrived at the Mental Health Building he was at ease – not worried or anxious – as if he knew instinctively that Children’s would be a place that would give him help and hope. Harrison was diagnosed with autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, anxiety disorder and absence seizures. Through therapy and medication, Harrison has changed from being withdrawn and having meltdowns to being able to function in social settings like a typical 10-year-old. Janet is determined to help spread awareness about mental health and developmental disabilities as lifelong challenges and believes that with ongoing care and support from BC Children’s, Harrison will become a successful and happy man.

Maximizing Potential Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children helps children realize their full potential. To do so, Sunny Hill caregivers work with families to better understand and address their child’s needs, and to develop tailored recommendations and services. Whether a child has suffered a traumatic brain injury, has autism or is living with a chronic illness that affects their level of ability, staff at Sunny Hill work with them and their families to help them manage their unique challenges. Last year, thanks to your generosity, BC Children’s Hospital Foundation provided $1,181,000 for child development and rehabilitation programs at Sunny Hill, which serves more than 5,000 children with special needs annually. These funds went toward equipment, research and education, with the lion’s share supporting innovations in care for children from across the province with conditions that affect their growth and development. Safe Feeding Project The Safe Feeding Project aims to foster meaningful communication around safe feeding for families of children with a brain injury. Funds were used to conduct interviews with the families of children staying at Sunny Hill as inpatients, and to use the information gathered to enhance communication and partnership between families and caregivers who must work together to help children learn to eat and swallow as safely as possible.

Custom seating technology Sunny Hill staff have established an innovative process for molding customized seating supports for children who cannot sit up on their own. Using existing technology at Sunny Hill, staff have reduced the time it takes to fabricate these seats while decreasing costs. The new process involves the creation of digital files to help with future seat modifications, measurements and tracking of the child’s physical changes over time – making seating adjustments faster and more convenient for kids. Finding balance with virtual reality The Cube digital floor for virtual reality lets children at Sunny Hill work on their balance, range of movement and strength while interacting with an engaging electronic floor game. The donor-funded device projects over 70 special effects and games onto a two-metre floor display. The Cube’s computer vision system detects and interprets the child’s motions, and its interactive display

2012 /2013 bc children’s hospital foundation activity report


reacts to movements on the floor. For instance, when children put their feet on an image of a swimming pool, it causes the projection of water to ripple. Children with cerebral palsy, brain injuries or who require lower-limb therapy can easily manipulate the images with their feet as they play. The Cube provides a fun and inviting way to keep kids at Sunny Hill strong and to get them on their feet. Other projects include a learning module focusing on virtual reality interventions for children with special needs that is being completed in partnership with the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario and the University of Ottawa. Also, Phase 1 of a virtual tour of Sunny Hill is being developed and finalized, and will allow Sunny Hill’s patients, families, caregivers and the general public to take an online tour of Sunny Hill’s programs, research and innovation.

Child development research In 2012-13 funding supported researchers in their efforts to better understand the unique needs of children with complex and chronic health conditions, and how to better serve them and their families. Recent studies focused on participation among children and youth with neurodevelopmental disabilities, health among the caregivers of children and youth with chronic health conditions and disabilities, and analyzing information about children with autism and their families. Early intervention for cerebral palsy Dr. Iona Novak, head of the Cerebral Palsy Institute at the University of Notre Dame’s School of Medicine in Australia, and internationally recognized for her research into cerebral palsy, visited Sunny Hill to engage with staff over three days last year. As a result of this visit, Sunny Hill has identified the need to participate in a new initiative to ensure the early diagnosis of children with cerebral palsy in BC, as research now indicates the importance of timely intervention for infants with the condition. 39

Casey Wright Thirteen-year-old Casey Wright’s small stature is deceiving: his personality has always been larger than life. Casey’s positive demeanour has helped him and his family cope with ongoing treatment for a brain tumour that was diagnosed when he was just six months old. Casey endured surgery and chemotherapy as an infant, and again at age three when his cancer returned. At the time, Casey’s tumour was inoperable. But everything changed last January, as Casey’s tumour was pressing on his optic nerve, posing the risk of blindness in the one eye he uses to see. During major brain surgery in February, Casey’s medical team at BC Children’s was finally able to remove the tumour. But this victory was bittersweet as Casey suffered a stroke in the weeks following surgery, paralyzing his right side. He then began the arduous task of rehabilitation at Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children. Casey spent two and a half months at Sunny Hill relearning to speak, walk and swallow. Today, he is back at home and on the road to – his parents hope – a cancer-free recovery. Never at a loss for words, Casey declares he will fill the void left by the tumour with “more personality, because the world can never have enough Casey.”

Building on Excellence Tens of thousands of children come to BC Children’s Hospital year-round for specialized care that is not available anywhere else in the province. Our caregivers are able to meet the urgent needs of these children thanks to the support they receive from the Excellence in Child Health Fund, which supports the areas of greatest need at BC Children’s, Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children and the Child & Family Research Institute. Each year the foundation directs approximately $14 million from the fund to these three facilities to support education programs for staff and families, specialized research into childhood disease, and to purchase and upgrade our life-saving medical equipment. Keeping equipment up to date A total of $2.2 million supported equipment purchases and upgrades last year. Serving patients from newborns to teenagers, BC Children’s and Sunny Hill require equipment that is diverse in size and type. Modern equipment enables our caregivers to provide safer, more effective and more precise care. In turn, this reduces the amount of pain a child experiences during a medical procedure, minimizes the risk of complications and improves overall safety by ensuring medical staff have the most accurate and detailed information about each patient.

Last year a $151,000 vitrectomy system was purchased for our Ophthalmology Department. This machine is used in eye surgery and is vital in the treatment of children with eye tumours and other diseases such as glaucoma. The current machine is quite old and this new laser-equipped version will help to decrease operating time for patients. Our anesthesiologists are also better equipped with the addition of an $80,000 SonoSite ultrasound machine, used to help locate a child’s veins to allow central lines to be inserted more quickly. Demand on the current machine is high and the addition of a second unit has significantly improved care.

At Sunny Hill a $5,000 EasyStand Evolv stander was purchased, which helps patients with mobility challenges to stand and achieve greater independence while improving bone density. Stimulating research discoveries In 2012-13 $9.3 million went to support activities at the CFRI, where hundreds of North America’s brightest and most promising researchers and scientists work to find better treatments and cures to common and rare childhood diseases. Many of our researchers at the CFRI, located on the hospital site, have a clinical practice at the hospital so their findings are often translated quickly from the lab into treatments and new therapies that benefit our children. Making strides in cystic fibrosis treatment A research study done by Dr. Stuart Turvey, a senior clinician scientist at the CFRI and a pediatric immunologist at BC Children’s Hospital, has identified a new drug with potential for treating cystic fibrosis (CF) lung disease. CF is the most common genetic disease in young Canadians, and there is no known cure. Over time, the recurring cycle of lung infections and inflammation common in people with CF damages the lungs, and

can result in a lung transplant being the only treatment option. Dr. Turvey’s discovery is the first step in identifying new medicines to reduce this lung inflammation, decreasing the likelihood that a lung transplant will be required. A wireless eye on kids’ urinary dysfunction CFRI researcher Dr. Kourosh Afshar and his colleagues are pioneering a wireless device that gives an on-the-go view of children’s bladder dysfunction. In a pilot study, participants wore the matchbox-sized device against their skin below their belly buttons, and remained mobile. The researchers found that the wireless device provided a clear view of the difference in bladder blood flow in normal and affected children, indicating the approach has both research and diagnostic value for the 1,500 kids who seek help for urologic function problems at Children’s each year. Your commitment ensures that we meet our patients’ diverse health needs and that BC Children’s Hospital remains a place of health care excellence every day of the year.

Kids Can Help With support from “Can Man,” friends, family, local businesses and the Langley community, Sean Thomas and his peers have raised $40,000 for BC Children’s Hospital since 2009 through Kids Can Help. When 11-year-old Sean first told his mom he wanted to help find a cure for cancer, she gave him a phone number and told him that if he really wanted to make a difference, he would have to do it on his own. He called BC Children’s Hospital and, before long, Kids Can Help began. The program is run by a group of over 30 young volunteers who organize and fundraise for BC Children’s Hospital Foundation through a variety of community events, from their annual talent show and silent auction to almond, bracelet and bake sales. Kids Can Help participants believe there is no limit to what they can accomplish. Twenty-three of these young fundraisers presented an astonishing $20,085 at Miracle Weekend in June 2013, showing the world that kids really can help.

Taylin McGill Kheya McGill celebrated her third birthday at Children’s Hospital – but not because she was sick. Her baby sister, Taylin, was fighting for her life. Taylin survived after months at the hospital battling a bacterial meningitis infection in her brain. She has since endured 17 surgeries, half of them by the age of three. Taylin had her first shunt placed in her brain as a baby; the infection had caused blockages in the flow of her cerebral spinal fluid. She appeared to make a full recovery – until two years later, when a string of rushed visits to Children’s Emergency led to yet another brain surgery. But it was on July 22, 2005, that things took a drastic turn for the worse. When Taylin awoke after three days in a coma she could no longer speak and her left side was paralyzed. She spent two weeks in intensive care before saying her first word: Kheya.   Taylin has long since relearned to walk and talk, and keeps up with friends her age in school. Though she will likely face more brain surgeries, seizures and hospital visits, this 11-year-old has developed a wonderful sense of humour and a love of singing and sports – all of which she joyfully shares with her loving sister.

Cardiac Monitor

Conundrum Can you tell which one is not like the others?

1. The new cardiac monitors are automated and give caregivers a more accurate understanding of a child’s condition, making medication dosing and monitoring safer for kids at Children’s Emergency, in the operating room and on the cardiac unit.

48

BC Children’s Hospital is constantly upgrading and replacing outdated equipment. From monitors to microscopes, specialized equipment purchases are helping to improve the speed, accuracy and safety of diagnoses and treatments for children. Your support is helping to ensure our caregivers have access to the latest medical tools and giving BC’s kids the highest quality of care available.

2. The older monitor is obsolete, with parts that cannot be replaced or repaired when it breaks down. Staff training is challenging and its use is inefficient when caregivers must switch between different types of monitors.

2012 /2013 bc children’s hospital foundation activity report

3. The new machines are the standardized monitors that our health-care teams use to care for children. Having the same type of monitor throughout the hospital ensures our specialists are proficient in using the equipment and can deliver the best care to BC’s kids.

WAYS OF GIVING There are many ways to make a gift to benefit BC’s kids.

Bequest in Your Will

A bequest is a direction in your will that a certain sum of money, a particular asset, or a portion of the estate is to be given to British Columbia’s Children’s Hospital Foundation (our legal name). A bequest made to the foundation generates a tax credit that offsets the tax otherwise payable on up to 100 per cent of your net income in the year of death. Unused credits can be carried back one year. These credits may result in significant income tax savings and increase your net estate.

Life Insurance

Giving life insurance is a way of making a gift without depleting your estate or depriving your loved ones of other assets. At the end of your lifetime, the gift of the policy proceeds will be paid by the insurance company directly to BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. Depending on how the policy is structured, you may receive a tax benefit during your lifetime or your estate will receive the benefit.

Publicly Traded Securities

Donating securities is an effective way to give. If you own publicly traded securities that have increased in value and you decide to sell them, 50 per cent of the capital gain is taxable. However, if you donate these securities “in kind” to BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, no tax is payable on the capital gain. The resulting tax credit from the donation of the securities will reduce taxes payable on other income. Making a gift of publicly traded securities is easy to do. Please contact us for a transfer form to facilitate the process.

RRSP/RRIF

You can name BC Children’s Hospital Foundation as the direct beneficiary of the proceeds of your RRSP or RRIF or you can make a gift of the proceeds from your RRSP or RRIF to BC Children’s Hospital Foundation in your will. The resulting tax credit may be used to offset the tax payable on the redemption of the proceeds of the retirement plan.

Pledges

Our pledge program offers you a convenient method of making contributions. The program allows you to spread your contribution over three to five years, usually commencing the year the pledge is made. You will receive full recognition for the value of your contribution as soon as the commitment is made. BC Children’s Hospital Foundation is a registered Canadian charity and issues tax receipts for all donations. Tax credits generated by donations can offset tax otherwise payable on up to 75 per cent of your net income in the year of the gift. Any unused tax credits may be carried forward and used to offset taxes over the following five years.
