Over and above the work and time they put into their roles at SickKids, Dr. Luc Mertens (originally from Belgium, and a member of the BCBC) and Dr. Barbara Cifra have volunteered to take on a new challenge – hosting a fundraiser in support of the Echocardiography Lab at SickKids. Promising to be an unforgettable experience, Hope for Hearts Gala will include a delicious dinner, abundant silent and live auctions, as well as great performances and special guests.
Date: Thursday May 7, 2015 Time: 7:30 p.m.
Location: Riviera Parque, 2800 Highway #7 West, Vaughan, ON
Each year, 1 out of every 100 babies born has a heart defect and more than half need surgery to survive. SickKids is one of the world’s leading centres dedicated to the study and treatment of congenital heart disease. With your support, we can improve diagnosis, care, and outcome for the treatment of heart disease.
“We truly believe in the work we do. We see the benefits. We want to continue to share the results and impact lives.” – Dr. Luc Mertens
“We want people to understand that research is practical and that it can change lives. The research we do can not only change a child’s life, it can save a child’s life.” – Dr. Barbara Cifra
