On September 18, a new memorial garden honouring the sacrifices of organ and tissue donors was unveiled at Sunnybrook.

Staff from Sunnybrook and Trillium Gift of Life attended the ceremony outside of H-wing, along with members of the organ donation community.

Among the speakers at the event was Heather Talbot, a Sunnybrook patient partner who played an important role in the creation of the garden. After her son Jonathon became an organ donor ten years ago, she and her husband Terry have become active in the organ donation community, participating in causes like the Canadian Transplant Games and hosting an annual table tennis fundraising tournament.
