“I give because Community Memorial Saved my husband’s life”
The memory of the night Nicole thought her husband would die has never left her. Suspecting a heart attack, she rushed him to the new Emergency Department at the nearest hospital, Community Memorial in Hamilton. “It was the best decision I’ve made in my life” she says.
Within minutes the staff had him stabilized and out of immediate danger, “all while going out of their way to calm my panic.” Nicole says she will always be grateful for the staff’s speed, compassion and professionalism. “It was a life changing night, but it could have been so much worse. They were absolutely amazing. That’s the way healthcare should be.”
Now Nicole feels that she has a hospital she can depend on right in her community. “I’m secure in the knowledge that they’re there for me and my family. That’s why I donate to Community Memorial.”
