On March 21, 2013, Tracy Malayney, Kinsmen Foundation Board Chair, announced a $400,000 donation to St. Paul's Hospital in support of the acquisition of a digital transmission electron microscope which will serve patients from across Saskatchewan.
"We all care about our families, friends, and neighbours," said Tracy. "When one of us is not well, we all worry. Knowing a person's condition, cause, and treatment accurately and in a timely manner is important. Telemiracle is the coming together of family, friends, and neighbours looking out for one another. For these reasons, Kinsmen Foundation is pleased to support St. Paul's Hospital in the purchase of Saskatchewan's new digital transmission electron microscope."
This microscope is necessary to accurately diagnose and stage disease for those suffering from kidney, cardiac, and neurological illnesses. St. Paul's hospital is recognized province-wide for its facility and skilled professionals in treating kidney disease, performing dialysis, and offering transplant services. "Acquiring a new digital transmission electron microscope is paramount, not only for our hospital, but for this health region and the province as a whole, says Dr. Joe Blondeau, Interim Head of Pathology and Lab Medicine for the University of Saskatchewan and Saskatoon Health Region. "access to this equipment ensures that our skilled technologists, pathologists, and clinicians will continue to provided the accepted standard of care here in Saskatchewan."
It is thanks to the people of Saskatchewan and their generous donations that the Kinsmen Foundation is able to help with such an important and innovative piece of technology!

Perform on Kinsmen Telemiracle 37!
We are looking for Saskatchewan singers, dancers, bands, and entertainers to audition to perform on Kinsmen Telemiracle 37 to be held March 2 and 3, 2013, and broadcast live on CTV.
“Audition time is exciting for us. We are amazed every year at the incredible talent in our province.” says Joan Steckhan, the Kinsmen Foundation’s Executive Director. “We audition over 200 performances on the Audition weekend. Our producers always have a tough job to narrow that down to the less than 50 that will ultimately be on the show.”
While talent is one part of our criteria – passion for Telemiracle, the desire to help others, and geographic balance among performers are other factors involved in the selection of who will be on the show. Producer Ian Roach says, “Telemiracle is a coming together of the people of Saskatchewan to raise funds for people with special needs. Our performers are a huge part of that and we look to celebrate this in every corner of the province.”
Anyone interested in auditioning for Telemiracle must apply with the Kinsmen Telemiracle office to be registered. Auditions will be held on November 3 in Regina and November 4 in Saskatoon. Please call 244-6400, extension 2, to register.
The Kinsmen Foundation makes miracles by providing Saskatchewan people and organizations with special needs equipment and access to medical assistance. Through Telemiracle dollars, the Kinsmen Foundation is able to gift special needs equipment, mobility equipment, travel costs to get to medical facilities, community vans, and equipment in hospitals and health centres.
