Special Request for a patient hospitalized far from home

  • News

Last week, a medical team contacted us with a Special Request for a patient who had recently been airlifted to a Montreal hospital from the North Shore in Eastern Quebec due to complications with her cancer treatment. The medical team told us that she would have to remain in isolation in Montreal for an undetermined amount of time and was devastated that she would miss spending Christmas with her children. This morning, we were able to give her an iPad mini of her own so that she could Skype with her family back home and watch her children open the presents she purchased for them.

We would like to thank the medical team for thinking of VOBOC to help ease the cancer experience for this patient and our volunteers for delivering the special gift to the hospital.
