Congratulations to the hundreds of Princess Margaret Cancer Centre patients, their caregivers, doctors, nurses, health care workers and supporters who gathered last Wednesday at Black Creek Pioneer Village for Canada's inaugural Allogeneic Blood and Bone Marrow Transplant Patient Survivorship Day. Dr. Jonas Mattsson, director of the Hans Messner Allogeneic Transplant Program, and his team organized this beautiful event to celebrate patients' good health, and pay tribute to the huge team who make transplants possible. John Ralston Saul, one of several patients who spoke, said he felt linked forever to his anonymous donor. Lilac Cana, another patient, sang an opera duet with Dr. Armin Gerbitz.

It was great to see positive media attention last week on the Social Medicine Supportive Housing project in Parkdale, a partnership between UHN, the City of Toronto, and the United Way of Greater Toronto.
Global News and
The Toronto Star both had reports on this innovative initiative. Once completed, the four-storey modular building at 150 Dunn Ave. will provide accessible, safe, and affordable housing to 51 people from historically marginalized groups who are frequent users of hospital services. Mayor Olivia Chow
posted on X that she was "happy to partner with UHN on this project and excited to see even more across the city."
And now… our
video of the week. This clip shows how nurses set up an operating room for a neurosurgical procedure.
