Honouring Children’s Lives Through Legacy
One woman who truly knows what goes on behind the doors of Children’s Hospital is Lynda. It was 55 years ago, in 1961, that she was a patient at Children’s Hospital, where she was treated for appendicitis complications for two months. During her long stay, when being in a hospital bed instead of playing outside with her friends got her down, she relied on her imagination and the delights of a ‘children’s’ hospital to brighten her days.
“I remember I was on the top floor; my window looked toward the nurses’ residence. I could see a tree outside and that tree was one of my lifelines. I would look at it changing colour and was determined to walk out the front door on my own two feet,” reminisces Lynda.
