My motivation to walk again

was my eight year old son, Marko

I'm Maja
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.

I'm Marcel
I am a cancer survivor
I’m Marcel Portelance, and I’m a cancer survivor. I was given a 50-50 chance to live when I was diagnosed with colon cancer four years ago. Today, I am a husband, a father of two and a grandpa of twins. I am also proud to have biked beside my cycling hero in 2011 raising $58,000 for the Grand River Hospital Foundation.

Losing my daughter to mental illness

empowered me to work for change!

I'm Laura
I am a Mental Health Advocate
I’m Laura and I’m a Mental Health Advocate. I lost my daughter to mental illness and I honour her memory by advocating for change. My daughter, Ashlee, struggled from the day she was born until the day she died, and I know her life was not in vain. Through our life with Ashlee, we learned about the mental health system and worked with Grand River Hospital to get the best care for her we could.

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
