Dundas Royal Canadian Legion Poppy Fund provides place of refuge at Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre

The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 36 Poppy Fund is making a difference in the lives of families whose loved ones are undergoing treatment at Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre.

For the past three years, a total of $45,000 has been donated from the Poppy Fund to the Juravinski centre, and chairman Jim Byron was recently invited to unveil a plaque dedicating a room at the centre and recognizing the fund’s contributions. The plaque is located outside a Quiet Room near the emergency and intensive care areas.

The Quiet Room is a place of refuge that recognizes the need for communication and family conversations at a critical time in the life of a loved one.
