Welcome to the first issue of Hero, the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation’s official magazine.

For many years we’ve kept Stollery supporters informed about our donors through our Bearfacts publication, which when we took a closer look was really about celebrating heroes who make things happen. And, it’s our donors who help others become heroes. In fact, we began to realize that we have more heroes than could be imagined. So we’re making a change. Instead of Bearfacts arriving every few months, Hero will be making its way to your mailbox. Get ready for stories about Stollery Heroes. In this first issue, we’ve asked Jed Calhoun Rutter to be our cover Hero. This little guy has been through more than one would have thought humanly possible, which is why you’ll find the Superman cape in the cover photo with Jed. There’s a great story about Jed on page 6; I think you’ll share our opinion once you’ve read through the article. We’ve also added stories written by our Stollery Youth News Team. We’re all about kids, so having the youth voice in the magazine is important. These young high school reporters want to add professional writing to their resume, so we’re helping by giving them the opportunity to cover interesting stories and to publish. Adrienne has a story on Hair Massacure in this issue and Michelle met with Dr. Geoff Ball to talk about his team’s work at the Pediatric Centre for Weight and Health. As you read through, you’ll find page after page celebrating our Heroes.  We exist for the sole purpose of helping children, and we’re truly blessed to be able to give the people on these pages a Hero’s welcome.

Tribute to Shirley Stollery

O

n February 3, 2011, Shirley Stollery passed away. She was a great friend of the Stollery Children’s Hospital and the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation, and will be greatly missed. Although she lived with her own health challenges, Shirley and her husband Robert spent their lives helping others. She always had a smile for all of the children, and was admired for her dedication. Shirley loved to give bears to the children at the hospital, and as a memorial to her the Stollery family made a visit to the hospital to present a bear to each child. There were many smiles and giggles—just what would have brought cheer to Shirley.

The Stollery Children’s Hospital was made possible through the generosity of Bob and Shirley Stollery. Approximately 25 years ago, Bob met with concerned Edmontonians and pediatricians interested in improving children’s health care in our region. They felt it was time to bring a children’s hospital to Edmonton. It is because of their vision and generosity that Edmonton is home to a state-of-the-art children’s hospital. We’re proud to carry on their legacy. Shirley’s grandson, Jeff, presents a bear to Joanne in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit

Making a difference Dr. Bernard Thébaud’s research to save the lives of premature babies. by Andrea Donini

Christie and Jamin Griffith, hand in hand

Dr Thébaud and Jamin Griffith

I

Dr. Bernard Thébaud is a neonatologist that both treats and researches treatment options. His job is to care for tiny babies that are born premature. He says it’s hard work and too often he’s limited in treatment options.

Dr. Thébaud, with funding from the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation, is working on ways to increase the survival odds for premature babies with lung problems. It’s a common problem with preemies – lungs that are just too little or under developed to support the life of the child that houses them.

At 36 weeks gestation, a baby’s lungs are just developing the alveoli – the tiny sacs that allow the body to properly make use of the air it breathes. Without these tiny little sacs, premature babies have an inability to breathe on their own, and giving them oxygen and putting them on ventilators can cause irreparable damage to their tiny lungs. With preterm births rising, so that now 1 in 10 babies is born premature, the problem is significant.

always remember having to tell this one mother that her child likely wasn’t going to make it,” Dr. Bernard Thébaud relates, “It was a devastating moment and she just looked at me with an expression I can’t really explain and said ‘But isn’t there anything we can do?’ I have never forgotten that face.” Dr. Thébaud shakes his head and looks away. We sit in silence for a moment inside his office at the lab.

Here in the lab there is an acidic smell in the air. At first the odor is clinical and odd, but if you get the chance to speak with the researchers here, you’ll forever recognize it as the smell of hope.

Since the 1990s, doctors have had antenatal steroids and postnatal surfactant to treat lung deficiencies in preemies. These were two major breakthroughs in neonatology. Some babies, however, still need the help of breathing machines and additional oxygen to keep them alive. While possibly saving the baby’s life, breathing machines and oxygen may also cause

long-term complications, such as bronchopulmonary dysplasia, a chronic lung disease of premature babies. Current research is questioning whether there may be a link between bronchopulmonary dysplasia and increased rates of asthma, early onset emphysema, fibrosis and pulmonary hypertension in later life. A life-saving treatment is just that – but Dr. Thébaud is certain we can do better. He’s confident that within five years his new treatment will be in clinical trial and that it can save the lives of preemies. He even believes it can help heal the damaged lungs of adults born premature decades ago and now suffering chronic illness. None of this happens overnight, though. In 2004, Dr. Thébaud had an idea on how to help the chronic lung disease of premature babies. It involved injecting stem cells into the lungs of these babies to help them develop more appropriately. With the seed money provided by the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation, Dr. Thébaud set to his initial research. Publication of the findings brought the ability to obtain more funding from national funding bodies and continued research.

Every year in Canada five to ten thousand babies suffer from bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Now, Dr. Thébaud and his research assistants have proven that the treatment, intended for preemies, is successful in lab animals. They’ve solved the ethical dilemma of using embryonic stem cells by developing a method of manufacture from cord-blood stem cells, a product that would otherwise be considered medical waste. The Canadian Institutes of Health Research ranked Dr. Thébaud’s research #1 for its innovative aspect and clinical relevance. Many respected scientists, not just Dr. Thébaud, believe that this research will change the

Christie and Jamin Griffith

way premature babies with immature lungs are treated and provide the basis for treatment options for other chronic lung conditions in adults. Before they can make it to clinical trials though, they have to prove that the treatment is completely safe. A research group in the United States has come on board to help. Together, the two labs will design studies that closely mimic human responses to the treatment in order to assure the safety of the treatment. Once safety is assured, the clinical trial is that much closer. Normally, from idea to implementation of medical treatments takes 15 to 20 years. Dr. Thébaud and his team are aiming for nine or ten years. “You need passion and to be convinced that one day you will make a difference,” he says in response to questions about his ambitious plan. “This is what keeps us going here in the lab. Everyone is on the same page.” Every year in Canada five to ten thousand babies suffer from bronchopulmonary dysplasia. We don’t yet know how many will grow to maturity only to experience life-long complications from life-saving treatments in their early life. So despite the unfamiliar equipment and the acrid smell in the air, what’s happening inside this lab is the manufacture of hope – for healthy lives for all of our children, and better, healthier lives for the adults they grow into. “For every good day I have in the lab, there are four bad ones,” Dr. Thébaud says, “But I just remember that mother [losing her child]. It keeps our fire burning and relentlessly working towards this one goal: bringing our lab discoveries into the clinic.” With continued research, one day Dr. Thébaud will be able to tell mothers and fathers in desperate situations that there are options, and that their child will be okay.

There are children I have met who can only be described as inspiring, and that includes Jed, our cover hero in this edition. I’ve gotta say, this eight-year-old Superman epitomizes everything we would hope to be in our own lives. “Jed is our hero,” says mom, Karen Calhoun. “He lives in the present—not attached to the past and not worrying about the future. He is always in the moment.” She attributes this attitude towards life as one of the reasons he has survived and accomplished so much.   Jed was two-days old when he had his first surgery. “When you have a sick child, all you can do is trust the surgeons will

bring back your child. Those first months Jed was too sick to respond and then he turned a corner. And it was his courage, his determination, that brought all of us the strength we needed for him to survive,” says Karen. “What kids have to overcome and deal with humbles us and drives us to be better people. All you need to do is watch how they handle what’s happening to them to see what makes them heroic.”  Regular appointments at the hospital continue to be dotted between skiing, horse-back riding, swimming and enjoying school. And, this past summer, Jed decided he was going to water ski. Having watched all of the other kids ski, Jed’s determination won out and his dad Todd relented. Friends and family lined the beach as Todd stood in the water with Jed waiting for the boat to start off. As the tow rope became taut, Todd slowly lifted Jed up on the skis and away he went.  “There wasn’t a dry eye on the beach,” adds Karen.  When we stood with Jed in the hallway of his school to take the cover photo, I looked around to see that I wasn’t the only one in awe of this little guy. As we wrapped up the equipment and put away the cameras, Jed came over and gave me a hug and a pat on the back.  It was a hero pat. A Jed pat. The kind that helps you to believe anything is possible.

Kids Love Philanthropy by Andrea Donini

I

t was towards the end of her presentation that Stephanie Perilli, the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation’s Community Initiatives Manager, noticed a little boy at the back of the class who appeared deep in thought. His concentration was mirrored on his face, and from the front of the class Stephanie had noticed. Concerned about him, she immediately called on him when his hand went up. “You can have my milk money,” he said, smiling now, and opened his desk to find the 75 cents in quarters he had tucked away. He ran up to hand it off to Stephanie. As he does, several of his classmates begin to rummage through their own desks. A chorus of “you can have mine, too” rang through the class, and one little boy ran to retrieve his lunch kit to donate a baggie to hold the collected change. In just a few minutes, a grade 3 class raised $15.50 for the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation. It may seem like a small thing, but in truth, the magnitude of what has occurred in this classroom is immeasurable.

…children of any age or background can make a difference in the communities… This story is not unique – it’s one of the dozens of ways the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation has helped affect change in student populations. Through the School Philanthropy project, a joint effort with Edmonton Catholic Schools through the Alberta Initiative for School Improvement Wellness Project, the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation has taught students in 50 different schools what it means to be a philanthropist. It’s a big word – and a bigger concept – but it’s one students ages 4 through 18 seem to inherently understand. Once the

definition of philanthropy is taught, the School Philanthropy project helps students learn the ways they can make a difference in their communities and then supports them to do it. Whether it’s volunteering to knit hats for the homeless, running a food drive for the local food bank, or recycling beverage containers for a cleaner environment, the project aims to help children understand that their contributions are valuable and that children of any age or background can make a difference in the communities they live in. “It’s all about the love,” says Stephanie, “Every time I do a presentation about philanthropy, I ask the students to tell me what ‘true philanthropy’ means to them. Invariably they say ‘love’, and it’s true,” she says, “Philanthropy is about loving all of humankind, despite our differences, and about supporting that love with action. It’s so inspiring to see the kids – to see them get it and begin to give back.” Evan Stearns is a grade 1 student and he got it. His mother came home from work one day and mentioned that she was

drive past the Stollery usually prompted a reminder that there were children who needed hospital care. I confess that my thoughts often stopped there, not truly giving the depth or breadth of the care serious consideration. So when I began working for the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation, I had a very real awakening. My first day on the job included a walk through the hospital to learn what they do and where. It was a humbling experience. There were children who were too sick to lift their heads, babies who had experienced heart surgery, little ones in oncology wearing head scarves. It became an epiphany day and one that continues to remind me of the strength and courage of the children in the Stollery.

Stephanie takes to the floor, literally, to answer student questions

helping to raise money for the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation at her work. Several days later Evan approached his mom and his teachers to say he wanted to raise money too. And he has, Evan raised $500.55, well above the $200 dollars he had hoped to raise in two weeks. Evan’s actions in his school sparked a chain-reaction. “It started as a classroom project and then the whole school got involved!” says Evan. In fact, Evan’s school is hoping to raise $2000 for the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation by the end of the school year. Lindy Ewaskiw, a teacher at Anne Fitzgerald, knows firsthand how that money is put to good use by the Stollery Children’s Hospital. Several years ago her son underwent open-heart surgery at the Stollery. It was a life-saving operation and a terrifying time for her family, but through it, the Stollery provided incredible support and exemplary medical care. Now, Ms. Ewaskiw is giving back. Once students understand what philanthropy is all about, the goal of the School Philanthropy project is to support students in their efforts to put it into practice. Ms. Ewaskiw is the project champion in her school. She hears all the ideas and helps the students make contact with the people and services they need to execute their philanthropic plans. Lindy’s students even helped with the Foundation’s Donor Recognition event. They provided the artwork that was used for the invitations and the décor at the event.

To keep the momentum of this project going, a volunteer committee was created. This group of diverse individuals is available to step in and help the schools, and the students, with advice, access to resources and much more. It’s a community support group to aid community support. Everyone involved is loving it. “It really is amazing how excited everyone is and what the students have accomplished,” says Perilli. And the projects aren’t stopping at the school level. This spring, five schools involved in the philanthropy project are coming together to put on a huge Glee-style concert on April 29 to raise money for charity. From milk money to musical productions, the School Philanthropy project is showing students and adults alike how to make a difference in their community. It’s a powerful indicator of what’s possible when we teach and support our children to be involved.

hildhood obesity is a growing concern in Canada that should be prevented in order to keep our children and youth healthy and prepared for the future. There are many causes linked to obesity, but there are also solutions to help prevent girls and boys from gaining excess weight. The Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation is a strong and proud supporter of the Pediatric Centre for Weight and Health (PCWH), which is led by Dr. Geoff Ball. Research is being done to understand why families are struggling with weight issues and which services can be provided to keep families in good physical shape. The PCWH consists of doctors, nurses, dieticians, psychologists and exercise specialists that support and assist families throughout their journey to live healthier lifestyles. There is a strong focus on working with parents at the clinic. If parents can be healthy role models and make healthy changes in their homes, it is likely that the children will mimic their behaviours and make healthy choices themselves. One of the first things the clinic does is figure out a family’s motivation for change. If a family is enthusiastic about being healthier, a more intense program is set up; however, if a family is a bit uncertain and hesitant, they start out at a slower pace.

Sometimes families don’t realize that their weight is a health issue. “If mom and dad are big and their kids are big, that’s normal for them,” says Dr. Ball. Sometimes families don’t realize that their weight is a health issue. For this reason, the clinic gives families information on what is or is not healthy so families understand the link between weight and health, and that they can make changes to improve their health, in the short- and long-term. Childhood obesity has become increasingly common over the past 20-30 years, and it’s too complex of an issue to be solved

Dr. Geoff Ball chats with a program participant

easily. As Dr Ball says, “Obesity is like a cruise ship and it’s been going in a certain direction for awhile. To turn the ship around, it’s going to take a lot of time, energy, and people working together to make it happen.” There are some straight-forward things families can do to lessen childhood obesity if parents and kids are motivated and determined to make healthy changes. Regular physical activity, healthy food choices, getting enough sleep, reducing screen time and sugar-sweetened drinks, and regular family dinners are simple places to start. The bigger picture also has an impact, but it can be a challenge to overcome. “The design of our communities determines, to some extent, how physically active we are,” Dr. Ball comments, referring to some communities that don’t have sidewalks, or require a car trip to get anywhere. Both factors can decrease the likelihood of physical activity. Obesity is a big concern. Families who are knowledgeable, strong, and motivated can overcome this growing epidemic. So remember: Make healthy choices for a longer and healthy life.

Hair Massacure There’s still time to get pink

by Adrienne Leung, Stollery Youth News Team

N

ine years ago, Kali MacDonald was diagnosed with cancer at the age of two. Determined to help raise money and awareness about children with lifethreatening illnesses, particularly cancer, her family organized an annual event called the Hair Massacure. Kali has long been in remisssion, but her family continue to grow the event to new heights in support of children. Participants of all ages dye their hair pink to raise awareness, then shave it off to experience what a cancer patient might feel when they lose their hair from treatment. “Many people do it to honour someone they know who has cancer,” says organizer Tammy MacDonald. Hair Massacure is really an event that runs over several months, beginning in January and ending in April. The big head shave took place on February 11 at West Edmonton Mall where hundreds of people participated, but there are schools and companies continuing the spirit of Hair Massacure. The goal this year is to top the 2010 mark of $1 million raised. The money is split between the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation (pediatric oncology research), and Make-A-Wish Foundation, Northern Alberta, with a portion to Ronald McDonald House, Northern Alberta. This event has grown starting with 48 proud participants in the first year to 1,500 participants last year pinking and shaving all over Canada. Special guests such as Premier Ed Stelmach

and participants like the Edmonton Eskimos and Edmonton Oilers also help promote the event within the community. Large groups and schools like Sturgeon Heights School raise awareness in younger children. Second time participant Kira from Sturgeon Heights is only five years old and is “doing it for all the sick kids with cancer.” Nine-year-old Jared Quinsey also from Sturgeon Heights School participated in the event with his father, Sean, and raised $1000 dollars.

…people rub each other’s heads and cheer each other on as their hair falls to the floor. “My grandma passed away from cancer, and there’s this kid in my neighbourhood who had cancer, but he survived. I’m doing it for them,” says second-time participant Gavin Dyer who heard of the event from a classmate. Touching his shaved head, he admitted to feeling a little nervous before shaving it off. “It’s weird, you can feel the slightest breeze,” he laughs. Inside the event, the sense of community is strong, people rub each other’s heads and cheer each other on as their hair falls to the floor. It’s a great way to have fun together or support kids on your own. If you want to join in and support Hair Massacure, check out hairmassacure.com or call Tammy MacDonald at 780.938.4247.

activity made easy for kids

Activity made easy for kids by Sheila Graham

Being active for at least 60 minutes every day can help children improve their health, do better in school, improve their overall fitness, learn new skills and improve their selfconfidence. Parents and caregivers can help plan their child’s daily activities by encouraging active games at recess and enrolling them in a camp or sport, where kids can have fun while learning new skills. Parents also have an important role in playing with their kids – go sledding, play tag at a local playground or even puddlejumping on a rainy day. Being active with your kids is good for everyone! Kevin Arnott is the Active Living and Wellness Supervisor for the City of Edmonton, programming for the City’s facilities. He believes the new activity guidelines are positive because they give parents and caregivers clear, achievable goals. The new guidelines are also very inclusive. “There’s no judgment on what activities to do,” says Arnott. “All activities and levels are all good. Just get moving!”

T

here are thousands of things to teach a child, but one of the most important is to encourage kids to be physically active. New Canadian fitness standards offer reasonable and achievable goals for families, and activity programmers are continuously looking at new ways to engage kids. Research has shown that being physically active as an adult depends on our confidence in doing activities. That confidence most often comes from having learned fundamental movement and sport skills as a child.

the skill of doing the movements but also knowing why being active is important, and incorporating activity daily for life. The new physical activity guidelines were released in January 2011. They state that children aged 5-11 years should do at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous-intensity physical activity per day. It doesn’t have to happen all at once; activities can happen throughout the day to total at least one hour.

Learning those skills is called physical literacy, which is about giving kids the opportunity to discover how to move to meet different requirements – for example playing games, gymnastics or dancing. It’s also about teaching kids how to act and react, such as the skills involved in passing a soccer ball.

Vigorous-intensity activities should happen at least three times a week. This level of activity will cause children to sweat and to breathe harder, such as swimming, riding a bicycle, or running around on a playground. Activities that strengthen muscle and bone should also happen at least three days per week. Examples include push-ups, sit-ups, shoveling, raking, climbing and play structure-related activities.

Physical literacy also involves elements of strategy, such as moving to open space to wait for a passed ball. It is not only

The new recommendations are minimums. More daily physical activity provides greater health benefits.

The guidelines were released by the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology, the central Canadian body for fitness research, and are based on four years of research analysis by fitness experts and physiologists. The guidelines now align with those set by the World Health Organization and other major developed countries like the United States, Australia and Britain. “It is important to be physically active in different environments — water, air, land and snow/ice,” says Arnott. “Learning basic motor skills in a variety of environments becomes the building blocks for different activities.” These “building blocks” include running, jumping, skating, swimming and throwing. They form the foundation for children to be successful in sports and all activities now and into the future. For instance, skating can lead to hockey and figure skating; swimming can lead to water polo or diving. In addition, these motor skills not only create success in sports, but in life-long activities like skating and swimming. Becoming active at an early age can help make prevention a key component in a child’s life. Check out the tips in the side bar to help your child experience the joy of being active.

CREATE opportunities to succeed. On the playground, start with the lower slides so the kids get comfortable. When throwing and catching a ball, start standing close together and use a bigger ball. HAVE fun! Like adults, kids will be more willing to participate if it’s an activity they like to do. INCLUSIVE of all activity. Introduce new activities and make sure your child tries structured and unstructured games, by themselves and in a group or team. LITERACY – Physical literacy is about giving kids the opportunity to discover how to move, how to act and react through different activities. It is also knowing why being active is important, and incorporating activity daily for life. The importance of both DISASSOCIATION and association. Association is important when learning a new skill like learning to stop while skating – you have to teach the body what to do. Once learned, the skill becomes more automatic and can be incorporated into games where the focus is on fun and competition (disassociation). RELATIONSHIPS, not just socialization with other kids but building family relationships through activity. Children in families that are active together generally become active adults. ENCOURAGING activity in the four different environments (water, air, land and snow/ice) forms a solid foundation for being active our entire lives. NOT adults yet, let them be children! Practices don’t have to be overly structured. Kids need a lot of variety, so don’t expect them to do the same drill over and over.

Masquerade for Miracles by Aleesha Jex, Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation

danced with a big bear!” Not the typical response you would expect after attending a black-tie gala, but Malaieja Mastelero is only four years old. Her favourite part of attending the masquerade themed Snowflake Gala was dancing to live music with Dr. Patchup, the Stollery’s bear mascot, and playing with her masquerade mask. Malaieja can bear-ly contain herself

Malaieja and her mom, Kristine, know the Stollery Children’s Hospital very well. For more than a year, Malaieja could not leave the hospital. She was connected to a Berlin Heart, an artificial heart that gave Malaieja’s heart a vacation while she waited for a heart transplant. The Stollery is the referral centre for all complex pediatric heart surgeries and transplants, so Malaieja was in good hands when she received a transplanted heart on July 7, 2010. The Masteleros were one of 12 Stollery families who received Miracle Family sponsored tickets to attend Snowflake Gala. It’s a perfect way for families to enjoy fun time together. The Gala is also often a much needed break for the families who have been spending many hours at the hospital. Patient Keaton Littlefair also attended and was quick to spot the Canadian Military’s Coyote, a tank-like military vehicle that was a feature item in the annual auction. Keaton didn’t hesitate to climb up and take the driver’s seat. Between that, building endless creations with Lego in the KidsZone and enjoying turkey, potatoes and hot dogs, Keaton and his family had an action-packed evening. “It was nice to see that everything was created with kids in mind,” said Kelli, Keaton’s mom. Keaton spends many hours in the Stollery with multiple health issues, so having time just

to “be a kid” was a treat for the whole family. This year’s Snowflake Gala, presented by Don and Marina Ghermezian, was sold out and raised more than $824,000 to fund Keaton takes the driver’s seat priority needs at the Stollery Children’s Hospital. Because of the caring sponsors, volunteers, and the 1,100 guests who attend every year, the Snowflake Gala has raised more than $6.2 million for the Stollery since its inception. The Stollery is thankful for the support of all of our sponsors, especially Presenting Sponsor Don and Marina Ghermezian, “Diamond” Sponsors Denis and Dianne Dale and their family, and Syncrude Canada; and “Platinum Sponsors” Aquila Productions, the Love Boyz, and the Webb family. Planning is already underway for the 2011 Snowflake Gala. Mark your calendars for December 12, which will be the 15th anniversary celebration. For information on becoming a Gala sponsor, contact us at 780-433-5437.

PRESENTING SPONSOR Don & Marina Ghermezian

o be an entertainer, you need to be comfortable using a microphone. Former Stollery patient, Charlotte Keiller, proved that being eight years old and spending the first years of your life on a ventilator is no reason not to hit the big time. CISN’s Chris Scheetz was interviewing Charlotte and her mom, Tiffany, at the Corus Radiothon when it popped up that there was a singer in the midst, and it was the tiny, blonde haired, bright light sitting in front of him. Turns out that Charlotte knows the words to most of Taylor Swift’s songs. So, Chris held the headphones, while Charlotte took over the microphone, and the next five minutes on air was filled with a tiny voice having a great time with her first public performance. She did a great job—you can catch the song on YouTube—and it was fun to hear. What makes her performance magical is that there was a time that Charlotte’s family didn’t know if she would ever be off a ventilator or able to talk, let alone belt out a song on the radio. There were dozens of families who shared their stories during the Corus Radiothon. Many that were uplifting and some that filled all of our hearts with reasons to feel blessed. Thanks to the caring people listening to 92.5 JOE FM, 103.9 CISN Country and 630 CHED, more than $1.3 million was raised to support the Foundation’s efforts in helping children at the Stollery. If that sounds like a lot of money, it is. And it’s needed to ensure the Stollery meets the priority needs of the hospital and has the necessary state of the art equipment available to treat our children. It’s equipment such as the O-Arm 3 dimensional x-ray machine for orthopedic surgery. This $1 million piece of equipment aids surgeons in accurately placing screws during spinal surgery, which improves the

Charlotte Keiller entertains listeners on CISN

safety of complex spinal procedures. It allows for procedures to be done with minimal access, which means more speedy recoveries. All you need to do is ask a mom or dad with a child in the hospital how important they feel this specialized equipment is to their child to know that donors truly help to make miracles happen. Our special thanks to the companies who supported the Radiothon. Our presenting sponsor, Great Canadian Roofing, Exteriors and HVAC, was there with us all the way. There are many organizations in the city who support the kids at the Stollery, and Great Canadian has certainly made it a priority for their organization. Thank you to everyone who helped make Radiothon a great success, the crew at the radio stations for their on-going support and outstanding professionalism, and all of the families who shared their stories. It was an event that warmed hearts on a cold winter day.

Thank you to the Radiothon hourly and miracle wall sponsors: DIAMOND SPONSORS

Becoming a Miracle City In 2011, every RE/MAX realtor in Edmonton donated to the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation. When this happens, they achieve ‘Miracle City’ status. Together, they raised more than $365,000 in support of sick and injured children. RE/MAX agents are sometimes known as “miracle workers” for their ability to find just the right house. However, it’s outside the home purchase where the real miracles happen. When you buy a home with a RE/MAX agent, he or she has an option to make a contribution on behalf of the sale to the local Children’s Miracle Network hospital through RE/MAX’s Miracle Home Program. In addition to their Miracle Home Program, RE/MAX once again teamed up with Marriott at River Cree Resort to raise more than $60,000 from their Cotton Club Gala. Congratulations RE/MAX agents on becoming a Miracle City! Thank you for your continued support!

Step-Up-to-the-Plate Slo-Pitch Tournament The 13th annual StepUp-to-the-Plate Slo-Pitch Tournament took place at Telus Field on September 18 and 19.
