A Wall of Honour for the Dr. MacKenzie Forbes Society
On September 11, 2019, the Dr. Mackenzie Forbes Society members, staff from the Montreal Children's Hospital and from the MUHC Research Institute, as well as families of young patients gathered at the Children's for the unveiling of the wall of honour. The wall, installed in the Bloc B corridor, pays tribute to members of the Dr. Mackenzie Forbes society for ensuring world-class pediatric care for future generations of patients.
Members of the Dr. Mackenzie Forbes Society have made a legacy gift to the Children’s through a bequest, a charitable annuity, a gift of life insurance or by establishing an endowment.
Testimonials from grateful parents who receive services supported by endowment funds, as well as from Dr. Gupta, Nephrologist and Director of Child Health at the MUHC Research Institute reminded us of the real motivation behind these commitments: giving all children the chance to reach their full potential. "We cannot thank you enough for this sustained and dependable funding that effects transformative change throughout a vast amount of departments and divisions at the Children’s" said Renée Vézina, President of the Montreal Children's Hospital Foundation.
