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.

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
