VITAL LINKS January 2021
Incredible stories and a newfound hope for a better tomorrow, thanks to our community

As we embark on a new year, I’d like to take this opportunity to reflect on the last. Throughout 2020, many of our patients, physicians, and researchers shared their incredible stories of hope, new beginnings, and medical breakthroughs with host Shelley McLean on Pulse: The Ottawa Hospital Foundation Podcast. Each of these stories were made possible because of the generosity of donors, like you.

I’d like to invite you to listen to some of my favourite episodes linked below and I encourage you to share these with your friends, family, and networks. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
