Beatrix and David Oram – Leaving a lasting legacy
The Royal Victoria Hospital of the MUHC is near and dear to our hearts. We were both born there and later, as adults, became oncology patients, both of us being treated by Dr. Pierre Laneuville, an outstanding haematologist and remarkable human being. It was he who was responsible for saving Beatrix’s life with a bone marrow transplant. Saying “Thank You” could never be enough, so in our small way, it is our desire to continue the wonderful efforts that the hospital and Dr. Laneuville are making in research and cutting edge treatment for all patients. We have been monthly contributors to the Partners in Care program for a number of years, but have now decided to leave the bulk of our estate to this world class institution in an effort to “pay it forward”.
