Staff and physicians in the Paediatric Medical Day Unit (PMDU) at LHSC’s Children’s Hospital have a message for Canada’s Paralympic Hockey Team in advance of this Sunday’s gold medal game against the United States:
“Go Canada Go!”
James Dunn, Tyler McGregor, and Corbyn Smith—who all play as forwards on the team—sent a video message to their friends in the PMDU thanking them for the treatment and care they received at Children’s Hospital that helped get them to this moment in PyeongChang, South Korea. The team will compete this Sunday for the Paralympic gold medal; they have not sat atop the podium since 2006.
In response to the video and to demonstrate their enthusiasm, staff and physicians wore their Canadian red and white to send a photo representation of their support to Dunn, McGregor, Smith, and the team.
“These athletes are an inspiration to all of our survivors,” says Anne Chambers, a nurse practitioner in the PMDU. “They are living proof of the goals that can be achieved when you overcome the challenges many of our patients face.”
Dunn and McGregor were both diagnosed with bone cancer and Smith with a neuroblastoma in childhood. They are all in follow up and doing very well.
Good luck boys!
