Chairman's Remarks: 
For 2006 &2007 Mining for Miracles is very pleased to announce that the funds raised by the mining industry will be directed towards a very specific objective: The BCCH has committed to re-develop two operating theatres into “SMART O.R’s.” SMART Operating Rooms will enable the hospital’s expert surgical staff to treat children with minimally invasive techniques that mean less waiting, less recovery, less fear and less trauma. The surgeon’s at BCCH urgently need two new operating rooms with SMART technology to support the specialty pediatric surgical services offered including general surgery, transplant, and orthopedics, trauma, vascular, cardiac and neurosurgery. This initiative is totally donor-dependent. Without philanthropic support, the BC Children’s Hospital will not be able to build these SMART operating rooms –The goal of Mining for Miracles is to raise the estimated $3.0 million required to facilitate this objective over the next two years. With your help, we can help the BCCH and the children who require the services of the only pediatric hospital in the province of British Columbia .
