PSFDHD Magnifying Care Close to Home 2023

Dear Community Member,

My name is Taylor, I am 29 years old, and I have had 3 MRI’s.

I am writing to ask you to join me in supporting the Foundation’s Magnifying Care Close to Home, MRI Campaign – your special gift will not only help to keep care close to home, but your donation will be matched!

I cannot describe the emotions I experienced while waiting to receive these diagnostic tests that I knew held crucial information.

For each MRI scan, I anxiously waited month after month. So, when I received a call with an appointment, I was willing to rearrange my schedule to ensure that I could be there at whatever date and time they offered, even if that meant driving an hour in the dark to a midnight appointment.

I am thankful to be in a situation where driving to the city for appointments is possible.

For some, the drive to Ottawa or Kingston can be a minor inconvenience; for others, it may be an extremely stressful situation with a significant financial impact.

Some individuals in our community lack easy access to transportation and cannot take on the additional financial strain of taking time off work to travel to an appointment.

Having an MRI at the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital will be a huge asset to many, especially for those facing barriers who equally deserve access to healthcare.

This holiday season is the perfect time to give – as, thanks to the Dave and Ann Trick Family Foundation, every dollar you give will be matched (up to $100,000) to have twice the impact.

Yours sincerely,

Taylor Clark

P.S. The MRI is officially here at the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital HOWEVER, it has not been paid for, and we need your help more than ever to fund this vital diagnostic equipment.
