London, ON
1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

 

The London, ON, PH support group provide a place where patients, family members and caregivers can share their experiences, learn about PH, treatments and how others have adjusted their lifestyles around PH; and learn from others about how to get involved in the fight against PH.

Speaker - Barbara VanRassel, RN from Trillium Gift of Life will present Organ Donation. 
 

Barbara VanRassel has dedicated her life to the critically ill and has provided support at end of life care to patients and families. A graduate in nursing from the University of Montreal, she moved to London in 1989 and specialized in critical care at University Hospital. She watched her sister and father recover their sight after a corneal transplant and soon combined her passion for end-of-life care with organ and tissue donation asana on-call team member with Trillium Gift of Life Network. The transition to full-time coordinator soon followed. She has served as a mentor to many, providing insight into the complicated world of donation and transplantation. The opportunity to teach took her to Saudi Arabia, Ottawa, and Montreal, combining personal stories and learning opportunities with a twisted sense of humour.
