You have been incredibly generous over the past four years, making a huge difference for patients and families at our Hospital

Why Should I Donate?
Rod Morrison needed to leave town for quintuple bypass surgery and said, “Have you always thought that some things only happen to other people, until they happen to you? It’s one thing to need life-saving surgery. It’s another thing to be told you can’t have it where you live. Let me tell you, travel can be stressful at the best of times. It’s a thousand times worse when you don’t know if you’ll survive the trip.
The whole trip home was one I could not have managed on my own.
No one who’s recently had cardiac bypass surgery should have to go through this ordeal. Lesley and I have already made a donation to the Our Hearts At Home Campaign to ensure we can have cardiac surgery here locally. I’m asking you to join us in making your donation to bring this life-saving care to Northwestern Ontario, during this holiday season.”
