The family would like to sincerely thank Dr. Doan and all the other nurses and staff for their professional and compassionate care while she was at Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital. In addition, thanks to the nurses of the Bayshore Palliative team, Dr. Perrigo and his staff and to all those who supported her.
