The Gerald Kirsh Humanitarian Awards were established by the Kirsh Family, in partnership with The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, as a tribute to the exceptional care they witnessed while Gerald was undergoing treatment at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
Honouring Compassionate and Outstanding Care
The award provides grateful cancer patients and their families an opportunity to express their gratitude in a special way to the dedicated employees and volunteers, who are so integral to their cancer journey.
You can nominate any Princess Margaret Cancer Centre employee or volunteer who directly contributes to a patient’s experience by going above and beyond the call of duty to provide outstanding care.
