Caring Spirits: Transplant Clinic
The Victoria Regional Transplant Clinic provides support, education and follow-up care for patients who have received kidney and heart transplants. These caregivers make a big difference in the lives of many patients, including one former patient who chose to honour them with a Caring Spirit award!
20 years after receiving a heart transplant, the patient’s heart is still ticking along fine. He wanted to recognize the medical team that helped him over the years with a Caring Spirit donation towards new medical equipment for the clinic.
