Every baby deserves a fighting chance.

By collecting, pasteurizing and distributing donated human milk, The Rogers Hixon Ontario Human Milk Bank offers the extensive health benefits of donor human milk to the most vulnerable babies across the province. The Rogers Hixon Ontario Human Milk Bank is a non-profit organization and a joint initiative of Mount Sinai Hospital, The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) and Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.

"Becoming a milk donor could be a life altering decision for a baby who is medically fragile. It is a generous and impactful gift that we hope Ontario mothers will make" - Dr. Sharon Unger, Medical Director, Rogers Hixon Ontario Human Milk Bank.
