This past holiday season, UHN celebrated the courage of patients, their families and staff by launching the
12 Days of Courage.
Each day from Dec. 14 until Dec. 31, the series highlighted stories of courage submitted by UHN employees. A new story each day was revealed on UHN.ca and our corporate intranet site.
99-year-old Kitty Cohen who raises money to end women's cancers, to a
doctor who dove into a lake to save a stranger's life, to a patient who gave her last days to help others – these are some of the incredible examples that show courage lives at UHN.
