Grateful Patient Makes Donation


Doug Ecker and Dr. Inculet

For the past five years, Doug Ecker has been the coordinator of the Tillsonburg Cruise Nights. Every Tuesday night from May through September, classic car enthusiasts meet and share their passion for classic cars – and their desire to give back to the community.


Funds raised at these events have supported many different causes over the years. This year, Doug chose to donate some of the proceeds to one with a very personal connection - the Division of Thoracic Surgery Fund at London Health Sciences Centre.


Doug was diagnosed with lung cancer in October 2000, a cancer successfully removed by Dr. Richard Inculet, Chief of Thoracic Surgery.  Doug has been so grateful for Dr. Inculet’s compassionate care throughout the course of his treatment, he wanted to give something back.


"The quality of care and the true compassion that I experienced at London Health Sciences Centre was above and beyond. Thank you, to Dr. Inculet and the whole team there. I’m so pleased that I can make this contribution to show my gratitude." says Doug.
