Your donor dollars in action in 2015 -16 We establish our funding priorities each year based on the projects the Stollery Children’s Hospital identifies as its priority needs. In this way, we make sure your donations go to the areas of the Hospital that will benefit the most from your support. The funds we provided to the Hospital this year included $11.1 million for the following areas.
OUR REMARKABLE JOURNEY A message from our chair and CEO
October 2016 marks 15 years of excellence for our Foundation – what a remarkable journey we’ve shared! In the realm of children’s hospitals, the Stollery is considered a baby. Yet when you look at everything we’ve accomplished, it’s clear your immense generosity has made the Stollery a leader in pediatric care. Your unwavering support helped raise a record $29.2 million in 2015 -16 – an increase of 20 per cent from last year – to advance and transform children’s health care in Western Canada. By investing in excellence at the Hospital, you share in the many recent successes at the Stollery including leading-edge diagnostic imaging for scoliosis patients; advanced medical training for 16 residents and fellows; family-centred care for aboriginal children in underserved communities; and, world-renowned research like Dr. West’s investigations into organ transplantation.
We’ve also nearly completed phase two of our five-year Critical for Care campaign. Thanks to $7 million from donors like you, the Hospital will open its expanded and redeveloped operative services in September 2016, including five new operating and two new procedure rooms. As we enter the final year of our campaign, we need your help more than ever to raise the $5.5 million needed for phase three: the expansion and redevelopment of the Hospital’s intensive care units to include 48 additional single-bed patient rooms. While your investments in our campaign are helping the Hospital with its serious capacity issues today, we are always looking to the future. Please read about our bold vision for 2020 and beyond on page 34.

The Stollery has one of the largest catchment areas of any children’s hospital in the world – a geographic range of more than 440,000 km2.
The Stollery is the only specialized children’s health-care facility in central and northern Alberta.
The Stollery is one of the top three specialized children’s hospitals in Canada – meaning the Hospital has the talent and equipment to treat the most complex of the complex cases.
The Stollery is a hub for pediatric heart surgery in Western Canada and a national leader in organ transplantation. 5
$3.4M FOR EQUIPMENT AND FACILITIES The body is incredibly complex. As miraculous and amazing as the systems are that give us life, so too are they challenging and puzzling when something goes wrong. Thanks to the generosity of donors like you, we gave $3.4 million to the Hospital in 2015 -16 to fund state-of-theart equipment and facilities designed for pediatric care to help the specialists at the Stollery treat the most complex children’s illnesses and injuries.
Ever since she was four years old, Drayton Valley’s Philippa Madill has been raising money for the Stollery by hosting lemonade stands – in fact, she’s raised about $1,500 to date. Now 13, her stands at charity runs and bike rides also feature cookies, cupcakes and energy bars. A Stollery kid herself, Philippa and her sister both have scoliosis and visit the Hospital regularly. “When I saw all the kids in the Hospital, I knew I wanted to help,” Philippa says.“It makes me feel good to know I’m doing something.” 6
Breakthrough in scoliosis imaging For kids with scoliosis, an abnormal curvature of the spine that can lead to breathing problems, multiple X-rays are often needed over the course of monitoring and treatment. That means young patients are exposed to high levels of radiation over many years. “When you expose children at a young age to radiation, they have an increased risk of developing cancers later on in life, so it’s really important to reduce the radiation exposure that they get when their tissues are developing,” says Sarah Southon, the nurse practitioner for the Stollery’s scoliosis program. Since November 2015, the Stollery is the only hospital in Alberta using a new machine clinically that aims to do just that. Based on Nobel Prize winning technology, the EOS Imaging System is the first to be able to create a high-quality 2D and 3D whole body image of the skeleton with a very low radiation dose. “New research using the EOS machine shows that seeing the spine in three dimensions, how it truly is, can improve treatment such as bracing and surgery,” says Sarah. “I feel like now at the Stollery we are able to provide our patients with the most up-to-date treatment that is out there for scoliosis.”

Outcomes Six to nine times less radiation than a standard X-ray 50 times less radiation with micro-dose setting Shorter wait times with faster imaging system Improved treatments means better patient outcomes Increased research opportunities with 3D images

“With the old machines, lying down for my scan when I wore my brace and after my surgery was painful. I’m pumped to get my first 3D scan because you get to stand while they do it.” Emma Huyser-Wierenga Stollery Kid
Emma Huyser-Wierenga Age 17 Diagnosed with scoliosis at age nine, Emma wore a brace for two years before doctors at the Stollery surgically straightened and stabilized her spine with rods and 20 screws and hooks. Now in Grade 12, Emma hopes to work at the Stollery one day. Your generous gifts are advancing children’s health care in Western Canada and beyond for kids like Emma.
$1.3M FOR TRAINING The people behind the equipment and research at the Stollery Children’s Hospital make a life-changing difference for every patient and family member who walks through its halls. Your donations fund programs and fellowships that attract and provide advanced, specialized training for the world’s brightest medical minds. With more than $1.3 million in support from donors, your generosity made it possible to provide medical training for 16 pediatric specialists in 2015 -16.
After their son Brendan had open-heart surgery at age nine and needed care for a blood infection at 15, Trent Lindberg and his wife Twyla decided to give back the cost of Brendan’s procedures. Donating a little at a time, the couple from B.C.’s Peace Country has given $10,000 to help other Stollery kids and their families.“I work in oilfield services supplying water, so for every cubic metre of water we sell, we give a dollar away … We feel privileged that we can give back to the Stollery,” says Trent.
World-class expertise The best outcomes happen when you attract and keep the best people. So how do you convince a worldclass pediatric cardiologist to work in Edmonton? You offer him specialized training at Harvard, and cuttingedge work at one of the most advanced pediatric centres in Canada – the Stollery Children’s Hospital. After completing his sub-specialty training at the Stollery through the University of Alberta’s department of pediatrics, Dr. Joseph Atallah wanted to further specialize in the field of electrophysiology, diagnosing and treating heart rhythm abnormalities. Entering through leg veins, he guides wires into the heart and uses electrical signals and computer software to render a 3D map of the patient’s heart, then treats accordingly. The training to become a sub-sub-specialist was offered at Children’s Hospital Boston, a Harvard University teaching hospital. The University of Alberta (U of A) supported him during his training at Harvard – with the help of our generous donors – and offered him a job at the Stollery when he returned. Even though Harvard offered him a prestigious job, Dr. Atallah knew working at the Stollery and as an assistant professor with the U of A’s department of pediatrics offered the most room to grow. “I’m very pleased with my decision to return to the Stollery,” says Dr. Atallah.” I knew I would have access to the right tools and be able to practice a high level of care at the Stollery to achieve the best possible results for patients. The last six years have been filled with valuable academic and clinical opportunities, and most importantly the ability to provide excellent care for patients with cardiac rhythm disorders.” *Reprinted in part, thanks to the U of A’s department of pediatrics.

“Dr. Atallah has been with Keira since birth. The relationship between the two of them melts your heart. She’s with us today because of the care she gets from him and everyone at the Stollery. ” Brian Dickau, Keira’s dad
Keira Dickau Age 6 At just six years old, Keira Dickau is already a four-time veteran of open-heart surgery. While she will likely need further surgeries for her rare heart defect as she grows, Keira continually amazes her parents and doctors with her incredible resilience. Keira loves to swim, play soccer and paint, and she’s excited to start Grade 1 in Bentley, Alberta. Generous gifts from donors like you make it possible for the Stollery to provide the most advanced care possible for patients like Keira.
$1.3M FOR PROGRAMS Through funding to the Family Centred Care Council, you’re helping create programs and positions that fully integrate the family into every child’s care – programs that place parents on hiring boards, in doctor and nurse training sessions, and in design groups that help the Stollery build functional, family-friendly spaces. In 2015 -16, we directed $1.3 million from generous donors like you to programs at the Hospital, including $376,000 for family-centred programs in the areas of aboriginal child health, music therapy, bereavement support, pet therapy and fatherhood involvement initiatives.
Since 2011, SMS Equipment – a leading provider of equipment and services for the construction, forestry, mining and utility industries – has supported our Foundation through Children’s Miracle Network. Based in Acheson, Alberta, SMS employees have raised more than $700,000 through events, donations, payroll gifts and matched dollars for urgent needs at the Hospital. Every year, SMS’ annual campaign grows, helping to provide specialized equipment, training, research and programs that benefit Stollery kids and their families. 10
Aboriginal child health Imagine travelling all night with your child from the Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton to your hometown of Chateh, an 884-kilometre drive north. On the way, you stop at a pharmacy in High Level to pick up your child’s medication. But they don’t have it. This is one of many problems facing First Nation and Métis families from northern Alberta who have children with complex health needs. Whether it’s the difficulty of travelling from a fly-in only community, getting the right medication from a remote pharmacy or deciphering medical documents that aren’t in your first language, there are a number of barriers families must overcome. Sherri Di Lallo, the Hospital’s aboriginal child health nurse co-ordinator, is helping with problems like these. Fully funded by our generous donors, Sherri is one of the first aboriginal child health nurse co-ordinators in Canada. Her job is to make sure First Nation and Métis kids from central and northern communities can get excellent care – no matter where they’re from. Sherri has worked closely with almost 50 families since stepping into her role in October 2015. She spends her days liaising and advocating for aboriginal children and their families while they’re at the Hospital, and co-ordinating follow-up care in First Nation and Métis communities when the families go home. The result is better communication, continuity of care and improved service for patients and their families when they need it most.

After surviving meningitis, Tartanian has been in and out of the Hospital for treatment since he was three months old. Now at home after a four-month stay at the Stollery, 14-month-old Tartanian loves playing with rattles and being tickled.
“I’m here to make it easier for aboriginal children and their families to feel empowered and confident – to know they’re a valued part of the health-care team.” Sherri Di Lallo, Aboriginal Child Health Nurse Co-ordinator 11
$5.1M FOR RESEARCH Through funding to organizations like the Women and Children’s Health Research Institute (WCHRI) at the University of Alberta, you support research backed by evidence-based practice that makes a life-changing difference for Stollery kids and their families. Together, we funded 150 WCHRI research grants in 2015 -16, of which 81 were trainee and student awards.
Celebrating a major safety milestone, Jacobs employees reached three years and more than two million hours of service without a recordable injury. Rather than holding a celebration, the team agreed to make a memorable impact by donating $10,000 to our Foundation. The team at the Fort Saskatchewan site raised an additional $4,100 by hosting a BBQ and collecting donations. Jacobs’ generosity ensures the Hospital continues to provide advanced care for Stollery kids and their families. 12
Pediatric heart transplant research Recruited from SickKids in Toronto to the Stollery in 2005, Dr. Lori West wears many hats in the realm of medical research. Nationally, Dr. West is the director of the Canadian National Transplant Research Program. Through the University of Alberta, she is a professor of pediatrics, surgery and immunology and the director of the Alberta Transplant Institute. And at the Stollery Children’s Hospital, she is a pediatric transplant cardiologist who looks after children who either need or have had heart transplants. Twenty years ago, Dr. West’s team introduced a new concept that babies could receive heart transplants from donors who had mismatched blood groups. Today, that practice is an accepted procedure for children around the world with hundreds of patients receiving transplants who would not have before because of insufficient organ donors. “What started as a very daring step forward 20 years ago with ABO-mismatched transplants has now had impact worldwide on children’s lives, and we continue to study and monitor it every month,” says Dr. West. “The reason I came here was because the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation was able to support the establishment of my lab and assist the University of Alberta with a package that would allow me the time and the support to do the work that I wanted to do, with integrated research and clinical work.”

“Life is now full of fun and laughter and playing and lots of love. We can’t thank the Stollery and the medical team there enough for giving our boy a second chance at life.” Dana Dirks, Keaton’s Dad
Keaton Dirks Age 6 After years of tests and declining health, Keaton and his family from Saskatchewan found the answers and world-class care they needed at the Stollery. Diagnosed with a rare heart condition, four-year-old Keaton travelled by air ambulance from Prince Albert to the Stollery where he received a heart transplant in April 2014. After more than two months at the Hospital, Keaton returned home to resume life – now as a healthy, happy boy. At six years old, Keaton loves to play softball and mini-sticks hockey. Thanks to your generous gifts, the Stollery is a hub for pediatric heart surgery in Western Canada and a national leader in organ transplantation. 13
10 YEARS OF PEDIATRIC RESEARCH EXCELLENCE Children deserve the very best preventative health care we can give them.

Research highlights Below are some research highlights from the past decade as well as a summary of some of the grants awarded by research focus and type. Dr. Andrew Mackieâ€™s research team is one of four to receive $200,000 over two years as part of a project to improve treatment for children with single ventricle heart disease. His team has contributed to the Stollery having one of the highest survival rates for complex pediatric cardiac surgeries, and a shorter than average hospital stay compared to other North American centres. A 2009 -12 WCHRI grant allowed Dr. Geoff Ball and his team of 12 researchers to evaluate weight management interventions for parents of children with obesity, which are now used at the Stollery Childrenâ€™s Hospital and several other centres.
Childhood cancer and blood disorders
Disorders of the gastrointestinal system
Fetal programming of chronic diseases
Musculoskeletal system and rehabilitation
Obesity, nutrition and physical engagement
Virus and bacteria
By combining a drug normally used to treat cancer with intravenous immunoglobulins, Dr. Simon Urschel and his team have developed a treatment to improve heart transplant success for children who are at high risk for transplant rejection.
A WCHRI bridge grant enabled Dr. Jaynie Yang and her team to proceed with research to explore the potential of intensive physical therapy at an early age for children who become hemiplegic, or weakened on one side of the body, after a stroke.
WHERE OUR DONOR DOLLARS COME FROM Donations from our generous supporters come from four main sources: annual support, major gifts, special events and planned giving.
Annual support - 25.4%
Major gifts - 24.3%
We use direct mail campaigns and annual appeals like Stollery Week and Corus Radiothon to communicate with our donors on a regular basis about pressing needs at the Stollery Children’s Hospital. Donations from these campaigns and appeals often go towards our Direct Impact Fund – undesignated funds that give us the flexibility to meet the Hospital’s most urgent needs.
A multi-million gift from the late Dr. Robert Stollery and his wife Shirley was the catalyst for a dedicated children’s hospital in Edmonton. Like Bob and Shirley, our major gift givers are visionaries who strive to transform children’s health care with donations that support specific equipment and facilities, programs, research and training that make the Hospital one of the best in Canada.
$29.2M RAISED IN
Planned giving - 3.8%
A planned gift to our Foundation enables donors to make a long-term commitment to advancing children’s health today and in the future – a lasting statement of their generosity and care for their community. Planned gifts, including bequests in wills and gifts from annuities and life insurance policies, fund the Hospital’s most urgent needs and its long-term goals.
Each year, our special events create the kinds of memorable opportunities for generosity that our donors deserve. By attending our events, donating auction items, providing sponsorships and donating at our events, our supporters make it possible for us to fund excellence at the Hospital. Also, community fundraisers organize more than 725 events each year to benefit the Stollery – an incredible testament to our community’s passion and support for our Hospital.

$9.6M Funds awaiting Stollery Children’s Hospital expenditure Donor directed funds 2016 -17 committed funds 2009 - 15 committed funds As of March 31, 2016, we are holding $33 million for the Hospital, which we have committed to five funding priorities: equipment and facilities, programs, training, research and measured outcomes. Delays in spending from the Stollery Children’s Hospital and Alberta Health Services happen for a number of reasons. For example, delays in infrastructure projects can lead to delays in buying equipment, starting programs and carrying out research. And, delays in buying equipment can result from the Hospital testing the performance and suitability of equipment to make sure it gets the best state-of-the-art equipment possible for children’s health care.

CHILDREN’S MIRACLE NETWORK Our Foundation is a proud member of Children’s Miracle Network (CMN), a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of kids by raising funds for 170 children’s hospitals – 14 of which are in Canada. The funds raised through CMN programs stay local, and amount to 12 per cent of our Foundation’s annual donations. Our CMN relationship brings with it more than 30 special partnerships with national corporate partners. Our sincere thanks go to the sponsors and donors who raised more than $3.7 million in 2015 -16 to advance children’s health care.

Paper Bear Icon sales and percentage of proceeds campaigns organized by businesses provide vital support for the Hospital, engage consumers in a cause they believe in and strengthen customer loyalty by working together to give back to the community.
From payroll deductions and team fundraising activities to employer matching campaigns, workplace giving engages employees by creating a culture of pride, blending teambuilding with community participation to provide crucial support for Stollery kids and their families.
Dairy Queen was a sweet treat in 2015 raising more than $770,000, making it our top CMN partner for a second straight year. Our northern Alberta operators work tirelessly selling Miracle Balloons as they gear up for Miracle Treat Day in August.
KFC raised more than $37,000 through selling Miracle Balloons, donating proceeds from select menu items and introducing Colonel Sanders Miracle Day for Kids in September, a familyfriendly event with activities hosted in stores. 23
Celebrating our donors To the many individual and corporate donors – including those who prefer to remain anonymous – who make it possible for us to fund excellence at the Stollery Children’s Hospital, please accept our profound thanks. It’s because of your continued generosity that the Hospital provides world-class care for Stollery kids and their families from Alberta and beyond. The following list recognizes donations of $1,000 or more received between April 1, 2015 and March 31, 2016.
“Your Foundation’s activities and your donors are fundamental and irreplaceable in helping us carry out our mission to provide the best care for every sick child. We’re responsible for administering that care, but you provide immeasurable support to ensure all of our children and their families have the most compassionate experience possible. We supply the expertise, you provide the love.” Dr. Mark Evans, Divisional Director, Pediatric Surgery, Stollery Children’s Hospital 24

WHERE TO NOW? A bold vision for 2020 and beyond When it comes to children’s health care, we believe “great” simply isn’t good enough – for kids from Alberta and beyond, we need to be excellent. And we know, and are truly grateful, that you give generously because you also believe children’s health is a priority. The Stollery Children’s Hospital is one of the best in Canada. But as a children’s hospital located within the adult University of Alberta hospital, the Stollery is almost out of space. For us to transform children’s health care in Alberta and beyond, we need to do more. We must lead a vision where every child, no matter where they live, gets the best pediatric care possible. Alberta Health Services is working on its 2030 Master Plan, which we understand will include consolidated space for pediatric patients. We believe the time to act is now. Our Stollery 2020 Task Force members are out in the community, talking to parents, donors and other community leaders about our vision and commitment to doing our part to: • build a stand-alone Stollery Children’s Hospital tower • invest in research, teaching and treatment to support innovation • create a recruitment centre for the world’s best medical talent • develop a Stollery network of care for kids from Alberta and beyond Our plan for the future talks about a $200 million investment from our Foundation, and making a Stollery network of care happen in partnership with Alberta Health Services and the provincial government. Our vision will not only support the Government of Alberta’s economic development plans, but also advance its plans to improve key areas of children’s health including: • mental health • aboriginal health • equity and fairness for children Our goal over the next year is to make those plans a reality. We’re excited about this vision, and the growing community support that signals you believe children’s health is a priority worth investing in. Thank you for supporting us moving forward as we work to build the best possible future for Stollery kids and their families.
Our vision: to give the sickest kids the best chance, anywhere in the world, to live a long and healthy life.
“When I grow up, it’s going ng to be fantastic!” Caleb Schulz, 15
WHAT’S NEXT FOR CALEB? We’re not the only ones with bold plans – Caleb has his own 2020 vision! on! He’ll turn 16 this year and looks forward to starting high school and dating. His care at the Stollery is ongoing, including checkups every four months to refill his medicine pump, mp, bbut utt hhee ref refuses fuses to let his cerebral palsy limit him. Caleb dreams of moving out when he’s 18 and working as a stand-up comedian on weekends while going to college. He plans to enroll in a radio program and hopes to make a living as a voiceover artist. Caleb’s successes in his first 15 years are remarkable, and the potentiall for his future is tremendous. With your continuing support, we can advance children’s health care at the Stollery so more kids like Caleb can live longer, healthier lives and have the best chance to discover their potential. Thank you for your unwavering generosity.
