Every year, staff and volunteers at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre are nominated for their exemplary service by patients and their families for The Gerald Kirsh Humanitarian Awards. The 14th annual celebration was held on November 24, 2014.

After having experienced exceptional care for their father and husband, Gerald, the Kirsh family decided to do something special to honour the many staff and volunteers who assisted them on their cancer journey. In collaboration with The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation and Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, the Kirsh family established The Gerald Kirsh Humanitarian Awards. Through the award’s nomination process, patients and families have the opportunity to thank staff and volunteers who provide outstanding, compassionate care.

Jennifer Lebow, daughter of Paula Kirsh, shared her gratitude with Cancer Centre staff at the ceremony on behalf of the Kirsh family.
