Sharing our Hearts: 33rd Tree of Lights Campaign to support Cardiac Wellness Services
November 13, 2019
Windsor, ON - The Changing Lives Together Foundation of Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare (HDGH) kicked off a longstanding community tradition on Wednesday, November 13th with the official launch of the 33rd Annual Tree of Lights Campaign.
As per over three decades of tradition, members of the local Salvation Army Band put attendees in the festive spirit with live entertainment as staff members from each of the departments at HDGH hung an ornament in honour or in remembrance of a loved one.
Members of the community are encouraged to participate in making a difference in how HDGH delivers care with proceeds from this year's campaign going to support our Cardiac Wellness Program.
At the event, attendees heard from Dave, a current patient with the Cardiac Wellness Maintenance Program, where he is able to maintain his new state of health after suffering a heart attack in November 2018. His care at HDGH's Petro Family Exercise Centre was all-encompassing; through physical activity he strengthened his body, through educational courses he broadened his knowledge, through nutritional classes he fueled his hunger, and through support from staff and fellow patients he gained motivation and healed his heart.
For every Tree of Lights donation made, our Changing Lives Together Foundation will hang a special ornament in memory or in honour of your loved one on our Christmas tree and send you a paper ornament for you to place on your own tree at home.
To support the campaign and honour someone special this holiday season, please call 519-257-5234 or visit our website.
