The Current Challenge – Equipment Commitment 2019
Just for Kids (JFK) Foundation is driven by a mission to ensure that the Montreal Children’s Hospital can provide the best possible care for every young patient and provide their families with the comfort they deserve.
JFK’s Comfort and Care campaign is dedicated to raising funds for the Montreal Children Hospital’s Operating Suites, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), the JFK Kangaroo Care Program, and the JFK Sibling Park.
With rapidly changing medical procedures and new innovative approaches for treatment, there is an ongoing necessity for updated and state-of-the-art equipment within the Operating Suites. JFK is committed to providing doctors with upgraded tools and advanced technology, allowing them to provide young patients with the best care possible.
With your support, JFK will equip the NICU with 46 new specialized recliners, created specifically for Kangaroo Care, the ultimate method of comfort and care for the tiniest patients.
This skin to skin contact, known as Kangaroo Care has been proven to have significant benefits to both premature infants and their parents. Thus, we will continue to raise funds and awareness in support of the JFK Kangaroo Care Program which provides nurses and families in the NICU with necessary training and tools to allow parents to hold their babies close for hours at a time.
The JFK Sibling Park is a wonderful initiative providing comfort and care for siblings of patients in acute care at the Hospital. JFK will continue to support this essential childcare program which allows entire families to remain close during difficult times and giving siblings a safe haven and continued sense of normalcy while their brother or sister undergoes treatment.
