Welcome to My Personal Page
Hello Friends and fellow west-enders!
I'm riding for St. Joe's because our family relies on our community hospital. Life certainly happens and from the Just For Kids Clinic to specialists and emergency room visits, we know the route well along the Queensway. We are fortunate in that we haven't experienced a life-threatening emergency but we certainly have had anxious moments/days where St. Joe's has always been there for us. We are grateful that St. Joe's is close by and is a very reputable hospital. We ride because we want to ensure that excellent health care in our neighbourhood is always available and especially when unforeseen circumstances arise - not only health issues - but a global pandemic.
COVID-19 has accelerated plans to expand Emergency care space at St. Joe’s and equip it with new technology. St. Joe’s Emergency department, before Covid-19 was already one of the busiest in Toronto. In the spring, the space was immediately adapted to address the changes required to safely and separately deal with Covid-19 patients but so much more is needed. This will be the first Emergency Department in the GTA redesigned for post Covid-19 care, and accordingly, it will have new treatment areas, zones that ensure social distancing, and a separate Kids' Emergency area with child-friendly touches. These changes will result in almost doubling the size of our Emergency Department with the objective of keeping patients safe. Your support will also go to other areas of the Healthcare Centre that have important patient-care needs, including support for virtual medicine and for expanding labs so test results can be received faster than ever before.
If you can't join us on the ride, but would like to make a donation towards my fundraising for Cycle 4 St. Joe's, please click on the "Donate Now" bar. Your support is greatly needed and appreciated more than ever!
Thank you so much!
