Stories

Every gift, no matter the size, makes an impact. And the reason we give is as personal and unique as the person making the gift.

Shared here are stories from some of our donors about why they give, as well as stories from some of our patients who have benefitted from the impact of these gifts at Trillium Health Partners – Credit Valley Hospital.
