The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) is a world-renowned health sciences center and is ranked as one of the top pediatric health-care facilities in the world. SickKids has collaborated with POGO since 1983, to deliver the right care at the right time and in the right place for children with cancer and their families. 

Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO) was founded in 1983 by a group of pediatric oncologists to champion childhood cancer care and control. As the representative voice of the childhood cancer community, POGO works to ensure that all of Ontario's children have equal access to state-of-the-art diagnosis, treatment and required ancillary services. The lives of the children and families who they support provide continued inspiration for POGO and are the driving force behind their purpose to provide the best care possible, from diagnosis to treatment, and follow-up care. 

St. Michael's Hospital is a global powerhouse in research and patient care. Its world-leading physicians, surgeons, scientists, and staff take on the toughest health challenges. They dig deep to find solutions to intractable medical problems. They advocate on behalf of those whose health is complicated by life circumstances
