SickKids Model Profile: Dr. Sumit Gupta
The goal of Fashion Heals in 2016 is to raise awareness and funds for the SickKids Innovation Grant for Paediatric Cancer Care and Research by creatively showcasing accomplishments and impacts of the hospital’s team. The highlight of the event is a vibrant fashion show styled by la closette, featuring 10 ‘models’, all of whom are either SickKids employees or past patients!
