The 2020 provincial Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Radiothon presented by CIBC Wood Gundy has closed out an amazing year raising over $641,000 and was only made possible thanks to our incredible donors, sponsors and supporters! Your generosity will help open the very first Hemodialysis Unit for kids right here in Saskatchewan as part of the Children’s Kidney Health Program. The Children’s Kidney Health Program currently offers peritoneal dialysis and kidney transplantation. While awaiting a transplant, some children are managed best with hemodialysis. Saskatchewan’s children’s hospital is currently the only one in Canada that does not offer hemodialysis.
Plus, your support will fund four sites across Saskatchewan to perform special tests for kids with high blood pressure due to kidney failure. These tests are called Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring. These monitors are worn for 24-48 hours and perform multiple blood pressure readings during the day and through the night.
This year’s Radiohton went province-wide and was broadcasted live over 23 radio stations across the province.
Thank you, Saskatchewan!
