Smiles were in abundance at Ron Joyce Children’s Health Centre on March 9 at the launch celebration of the 24th annual Scotiabank Smiles for MacKids Campaign in support of McMaster Children’s Hospital Foundation.
The Smiles Campaign is supported by Scotiabank employees from across the region.This year’s Smiles Campaign is supporting the purchase of cardiac respiratory monitors at McMaster Children’s Hospital. The campaign continues throughout the summer months and leads into the annual Steve Varey Memorial Golf Classic in Support of McMaster Children’s Hospital, which will be held September 7.
Attendees at the launch heard a presentation by Jennifer Lawrence from Kitchener-Waterloo, whose 8-week-old son James received emergency surgery for his digestive tract shortly after birth. James is doing well today thanks to the surgery performed by Dr. Peter Fitzgerald.
