Giving Young Patients a More Enjoyable Hospital Stay at the HMR

For the 8th year in a row, young patients in the Pediatric Unit of the Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont (HMR) benefited from the support of the Starlight Foundation and Toys “R” Us Canada. They made a $2000 donation to the HMR Foundation for the purchase of adapted games and materials to brighten the days of children hospitalized at the HMR.

Welcoming children aged 0 to 18 years, the Pediatric Unit has demonstrated how effective these materials can be to reduce the stress linked to numerous and often painful medical procedures. They also help make intervention procedures easier and diminish lingering memories. By making this generous donation to the HMR Foundation, the Starlight Foundation and Toys “R” Us Canada are making a difference in the daily well-being of hospitalized children.

On behalf of these young patients and their family, the HMR Foundation wishes to thank the Starlight Foundation and Toys “R” Us Canada for renewing this lovely act of generosity.
