ER ROUGE FOR BRAVE T.O.
Hello friends and family!
As many of you may know, I am an emergency nurse at the Scarborough General Hospital and have the privilege of caring for many families, friends, children and some of the sickest patients in the area. I am fortunate enough to work with an incredible team of doctors, nurses, team attendants and clerks. The ER is not easy - everyone comes in at their very worst, but I can honestly say that I love my job despite the fast pace, high acuity and volume while working with such a diverse population.
I have signed up for BRAVE T.O this year because I have come to realize that our hospital (one of the busiest in Canada) needs greater financial support in providing care for the 115,000 + patients we see each year in the ER. Did you know that 59% of our community residents are immigrants, 25% of children come from low-income families, 17% of families are headed by females (one of the most vulnerable populations) and 1 in 7 have a disability?
I don’t know about you, but I can personally relate to each of those statistics, and each day at work I care for a population that does as well. That is why I am so passionate about healthcare, people, and our community - this is why I work at SGH. Although this is my first year on the job (23 and still have lots to learn!), my goal is to raise $500, which is enough for a hospital bed. My hope for this fundraiser is to get you all involved in contributing to a cause that will improve access to healthcare, health outcomes and patient care. We may not know who it’ll help, but I assure you that it will make an impact on someone. Every dollar counts - $1 is closer to $500 than 0!
So, if you have a moment and some spare change, please consider donating to this fantastic fundraiser. I will also be hosting bake sales throughout the month of September, which you can enquire about here if you do not have me on Facebook or social media!
