Sarahs Fund

our history.
their future.

For over 20 years, Sarah’s Fund for Cedars has been bringing the very best care and comfort to young people and their families living with cancer at Montreal’s Children’s Hospital.

A simple mission
that makes a profound difference

At Sarah’s Fund for Cedars, the well-being of young patients and their families living with cancer is our top priority-and we take a whole-health approach to addressing their needs, including leading patient care, support, research and education at the Montreal’s Children’s Hospital.

“Until cancer is a thing of the past, we have to continue to support people going through this now. It’s about the best care for them-today. The fund exists to make their lives a little easier. Even the simplest things on the floor can mean a world of difference. I know, I was there.

A Successful 21st Edition!
Splash & Dash is the signature event for Sarah’s Fund for Cedars that raises critical funds for the needs of young cancer patients who are hospitalized on Sarah’s Floor. Thanks to our participants, over $3 million has been raised over the last 21 years through Splash & Dash – a special fundraiser where the “heroes” on Sarah’s Floor, corporations, students, friends and family members bike, swim and run for this important cause.
This year, Splash & Dash was back in person with a refreshing new twist! In order to ensure that our patients, staff, participants, and volunteers remained safe, our 21st edition of Splash & Dash took place outdoors on Sunday, October 2, 2022, at Town of Mount-Royal’s beautiful Danyluk Park.

the heroes
on Sarah’s

By making a gift today you are doing more than supporting our mission. You are bringing smiles to our young patients facing the battle of their lives. You are standing with cancer patients and their families at their time of greatest need. You are making dreaming for the future possible.

“When our 4-year old son, Zack, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia after an ER visit to The Children’s, we felt like we were being ripped apart. The doctors wanted to perform his treatments, including a stem cell transplant, without being put under anesthetic. Thanks to the staff on Sarah’s Floor, notably the child life specialists and music therapists, he did it-and the music and dancing didn’t just lower his anxiety, it made him feel like it was a party! We could not be more grateful for this powerful intervention.”
