Date:9/25/2008

SickKids Foundation] has launched Connecting for Kids: Campaign 2008, a community of researchers, families and people passionate about stem cell and other innovative types of research.

(PRWEB) September 25, 2008 -- www.sickkidsfoundation.com [SickKids Foundation] has launched www.sickkidsus.org [Connecting for Kids: Campaign 2008], a community of researchers, families and people passionate about stem cell and other innovative types of research.

Connecting for Kids: Campaign 2008 is a portal for people whose children or loved ones are living with a life-threatening disease or traumatic injury and see stem cell research as a direct lead to the possibility of cures/recovery. It is also a place for the politically active, progressive community that wishes to advance the cause of stem cell research and its potential for medical breakthroughs.

Connecting for Kids: Campaign 2008 will inspire dialogue about the importance of stem cell research worldwide and it will encourage those who want to see these potential medical breakthroughs advanced, to lend their support to our campaign.

Currently stem cell research is heavily restricted in the United States. The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) http://www.sickkids.ca/research [Research Institute] in Toronto is in a unique position within the global stem cell community. The http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/hl-vs/reprod/index-eng.php [Canadian Assisted Human Reproduction Act], passed in 2004, allows research on spare in vitro fertilized embryos as long as it promises a clear benefit for human health. Because of Canada's position on stem cell research and an unrivaled concentration of excellent stem cell researchers at SickKids and in Toronto, the Research Institute is poised to make stem cell breakthroughs that will have a long-standing impact on the future of health care.

Researchers believe that stem cell-based therapeutics
