It has long been known that children undergoing surgery as newborns for congenital heart disease (CHD) are at significant risk for adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes. Dr. Mike Seed, Head of Cardiology at SickKids, believes the root for neurological deficiency in children with congenital heart disease develops in the prenatal period, as they are not receiving enough oxygen to the brain, while in the womb, due to a malformed heart. Dr. Seed and his colleagues are piloting a trial to test the potential of providing additional oxygen to pregnant mothers at 20 weeks gestation, for the remainder of their pregnancy, to determine if an increase of oxygen will improve neurological outcomes for these babies. All funds raised by the All-Star Gala for this project will be matched in full by a prestigious Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR) grant from the Canadian Institute for Health Research (CIHR).


Established in 1972, SickKids Foundation raises funds on behalf of The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) and is the largest charitable funder of child health research, learning and care in Canada. Philanthropy is a critical source of funding for SickKids – one of the world’s foremost paediatric health-care institutions.
As a national charity, SickKids Foundation not only invests in the important work taking place at SickKids, it also invests in national and international initiatives to benefit children in Canada and around the world. This commitment is true to the spirit of the Foundation’s founders, who articulated a vision for the Foundation that went well beyond the hospital walls 40 years ago.
