Directions: New Clinical Services Building (NCSB), Toronto General Hospital. Take elevators from University Avenue lobby to the 11th floor west, Room 1135.
UPDATE: Dr. Shaf Keshavjee will attend between 11:30 am and 12 noon and will be accepting a donation of funds raised for lung transplant research by lung transplant recipient Gerald Sutton and his wife Kathy Marcelline. Gerald and Kathy held a "Rock N'Roll" musical fundraising event October 15th in conjunction with Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation.
Mark your calendars and plan to attend this wonderful social opportunity for our lung transplant community.
Lung transplant recipient Linda Lycett, with help from Maureen O'Dell and others, has generously donated her time and committment over the years to make this an event to look forward to. I'll be there and look forward to meeting and greeting everyone. Merv.
Here's the announcement from Linda:
"Once again, we are holding our Annual Lung Transplant Christmas Party for pre and post lung transplant patients, their supports, doctors, nurses, and all other medical staff. As usual, this is a potluck affair, and we would appreciate any type of finger food. You can bring sandwiches, cheese plates, veggie plates, deserts of any type, etc. I will have the hospital cater the coffee and tea. We always have a wonderful array of food as anyone who has gone before can attest to. We are holding it in the regular meeting room on the 11th floor of the McEwen Wing, on Wednesday, December 7th, 2005. The time will be from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. We have to leave by 2:00 because the room is booked for that time so please come early and enjoy meeting with old friends, and hospital staff. It is a great time to connect with post transplant patients, and get to know those pre-transplants on the list at the moment. Cepacia negative patients are invited between 10:00 am and noon, and Cepacia positive patients from noon to 2:00 pm. I look forward to seeing you all there. Linda"
