We All Have A Story

Many of our donors are also patients or family members. Many patients naturally become donors. Most often because they have been touched by some of the amazing people who work at the Lakeshore General Hospital and care for them.  Patients, family, donors and staff, together they make our community hospital so special. These are their stories.

Lakeshore Story - Gwen

Going to the Oncology Clinic felt like a tea party! My name is Gwen and I have been very healthy all my life. I had never set foot in hospital for 65 years! In 2019, I felt some abnormal symptoms, so I went to the Lakeshore General Hospital. Shortly after, I was diagnosed with cancer.
