Amal Foundation


In 2000, Sarah Cook was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer called Ewing’s Sarcoma. At only eight-years-old, Sarah was immersed into a world that far too many children know. She underwent a year of radiation and chemotherapy at the Montreal Children’s Hospital. While undergoing treatment she decided that when she recovered she would do everything she could to make a sick child’s time at the Montreal Children’s Hospital as warm, comfortable and positive as possible. Over the past 15 years, the Fund has raised over $9 million to make a real difference in the lives of children living with cancer.

Sarah’s Fund ensures that patients on Sarah’s Floor (7B) at the Montreal Children’s Hospital of the MUHC, as well as their parents, receive the best care possible. Sarah’s Floor is the hub of the MUHC’s Pediatric Hematology /Oncology Division.

It is designed to meet the specific needs of young patients and their families:
Twelve single-patient rooms with private bathrooms, natural light and sofa beds.
Direct access to critical departments via dedicated patient elevators.
A serene, healing environment.
A family communal kitchen, a library: television and game room.
Offices and conference rooms.

We are committed to specifically support 2 initiatives:
