Toronto to Blue Mountain Village
A Message from SickKids
“When a patient gets cancer, we can cure four out of five which is pretty good. But when you take a balance, the one marks heavier than the four that we save. Children shouldn’t die and they shouldn’t die from cancer. When children with cancer come for a transplant, they often have a relapse of their disease. And the circumstance of bone marrow transplantation, we can cure three out of five, but those two, they keep me awake at night.
I want to work as hard as I can as a clinician for the patients of today but in the research, we work towards a better outcome for the patients of tomorrow”.
