My family is very thankful to CHEO for both my kids, but more so my daughter. You have great staff and are great with families.
On December 10, 2014 my daughter Tandra and I were in a horrible life altering accident. Our van was struck on the passenger side after a careless driver ran a red light. My daughter was sitting on the passenger side and suffered the greatest injuries. She was rushed to CHEO where she was diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury, a fractured clavicle and soft tissue damage. I don't know what I would have done without CHEO and their great team of medical and support staff. After her accident we stayed in hospital for eight days.
I would like to send a special shout out to Rebecca Musafiri (my daughter’s favourite nurse) for all her positive and encouraging words and actions during Tandra’s admission. She was truly a God send and went above and beyond her duty. Rebecca would play games with her and leave her little notes of encouragement. She always went out of her way to make sure Tandra was comfortable. She always tried to make my daughter’s stay better. I was proud to be a nurse during our stay there as it reminded me why I love nursing.
My daughter has been a patient at CHEO since birth, having been born prematurely and requiring regular follow ups at CHEO. She continues to be seen by Dr. Kovesi and Dr. Fournier and was also a patient in the ENT clinic.
Thanks CHEO for all you do. As a family, we always try to do what we can to help out CHEO. Way to go!
