Defying the odds: Research, rare diseases and resilience

Sep 13, 2021


In 2021, Children’s Hospital Foundation is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Dr. Cheryl Rockman-Greenberg has been with HSC Winnipeg Children’s Hospital for 41 of those years. Throughout her remarkable career, Dr. Rockman-Greenberg has served kids and families across Manitoba, Northwestern Ontario, Nunavut and around the world, with a passionate commitment to understanding and treating rare diseases.

Kids like Amy Tinsley from Ireland, who in 2008, was the first infant in the world to receive life-saving treatment for hypophosphatasia, right here in Manitoba.

Join us online for a conversation with Dr. Rockman-Greenberg and kids and families she has worked with – including the Tinsleys and Melanie and Alex Chief – to learn how supporters like you have helped to advance research, care and treatment of rare diseases and genetic disorders.

Let’s make anything possible.
