Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. If you are reading this, than you already know that I have accepted the challenge to conquer the Canadian Tire Brave T.O. obstacle race through Morningside Park in Scarborough. All proceeds benefit Scarborough and Rouge Hospital, but new this year is the choice to direct your donation to a particular department. I have chosen to direct my support to the Nephrology team.
For those who do not work in a hospital, the Nephrology team takes care of patients living with kidney disease, an organ that cleans toxins and other particulates from your blood. Patients living with less than optimal kidney function are required to undergo a life-sustaining four-hour dialysis treatment, three times a week.
The dedicated team of doctors, nurses, and other professionals in the nephrology team treat their patients like members of their own family – it is hard not to when you see your patients three times a week! They know their patients’ spouse, their kids’ birthdays, and notice little details like when they got a haircut. The little things make a world of difference in the patient experience, but it’s the dedicated team of clinicians that make it possible.
Please give generously so the hospital’s Nephrology team can continue to provide exceptional care to their patients.
