33 weeks into her pregnancy,

Kate was admitted to GRH.

I'm Kate
I am a mother of a premature baby born at Grand River Hospital
When you are pregnant you have this vision about what is going to happen when you have the baby. You don’t expect that after you give birth you will have to check out of the hospital and leave your baby behind…it’s the worst feeling in the world, but the caregivers at Grand River Hospital made the journey easier.

I am a double stroke victim
I’m Maja. At 38 years old I had to learn how to walk again. One year ago, I suffered two debilitating strokes that took away my mobility. My motivation to walk again was my eight-year-old son Marko. I still dream about the day I can take him to the park without my wheelchair or cane.

Why Give

As the area’s largest hospital, Grand River Hospital provides a wide range of specialized programs and services in our community, yet receives limited government funding for specialized medical equipment. We must rely on the support of our caring community of donors to provide the best possible medical care to our patients.






Thank You
