The Team from 14A“A level of caring and kindness that went far above and beyond the call or ordinary duty.”

That's how donor Ingrid Gadsden describes the quality of care her friend Ron Dunn received from the nurses who treat leukemia patients on unit 14A at The Princess Margaret.

Over many months, she visited her ailing friend and witnessed a “peaceful calm, a kind of oasis or safe haven from the storm” on 14A. Particularly helpful was the time the nurses spent clearly explaining every step of treatment. To express her appreciation, she donated $10,000 to the Foundation earmarked for the nurses and medical staff, to make their work place more comfortable and relaxing.

“The team on this floor is terrific so it means a lot when our efforts are recognized,” says Susan Robinson, Nurse Manager in Malignant Hematology. Reviewed: October 2013
