"10 years ago, I had breast cancer requiring surgery and radiation treatments. Because it wasn't that much earlier when local cancer patients were required to leave the area for treatment, I appreciated the care received at Grand River Hospital Cancer Centre: care was timely and exceptional; staff were kind and accommodating and helped to manage my anxiety; the overall experience was good. My experience demonstrates how important it is to ensure the Hospital is sufficiently funded to provide the care, equipment and facilities this community deserves."
