It’s a 10-million dollar gift to Mount Sinai Hospital from Isadore and Rosalie Sharp to further strengthen the hospital’s position as one of the largest specialized cancer programs in Ontario.
The newly named Christopher Sharp Cancer Centre will transform the experience for the close to 2,000 patients a year who come to Mount Sinai for cancer surgery and chemotherapy. The gift is part of The Campaign to Renew Sinai that will see the revitalization of its facilities and growth of its internationally recognized clinical and research programs. Today’s 10-million dollars follows a 5 million dollar donation made in 2007 in honour of Mr. & Mrs. Sharp’s late son, Christopher.
He died of cancer in 1978.
