$2,000 for the HMR’s Youngest Patients

For a child, being hospitalized can be extremely stressful. For the 11th year in a row, the youngest patients at the Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont (HMR) benefited from the support of the Starlight Foundation and Toys “R” Us Canada.

Indeed, a $2,000 donation enabled the Pediatric Department to make their little patients’ hospital stay a bit brighter. The funds were used to buy puzzles, mobiles, rattles, crayons, picture books and so much more. All of these toys will be used to entertain the children as well as to make their experience more enjoyable by reducing the potential anxiety associated with treatments and examinations.

The Starlight Foundation and Toys “R” Us Canada have supported the HMR Foundation since 2009. To date, they have donated $18,000 to the HMR Pediatric Department! On behalf of all the children who visit the HMR, the HMR Foundation wishes to thank them for over a decade of generosity and support.
