Honour Your Hero
By making a gift through Honour Your Hero, patients and their families have an opportunity to express gratitude and share a message of thanks with staff across Toronto General and Toronto Western hospitals and Toronto Rehab for their care, compassion and support while also making a difference – now and in the future.
In 2021, Toronto Rehab’s Celebrate Your Rehab Champion program joined with Honour Your Hero, ensuring all honourees are recognized across the organization for their exemplary patient care.
Whether it’s the doctor who cared for you during a difficult time, the porter who helped you with a kind smile, the nurse who held your loved one’s hand or an entire care team, they will receive a certificate with your personal message of gratitude and a commemorative pin at certain milestones.
How it works
A patient or their friends and loved ones can honour an individual or care team by making a donation through Honour Your Hero.
The Foundation will then send a certificate to each hero including your special message of thanks and your contact information, with consent.
Honourees also receive a pin at certain recognition milestones, outlined below.
UHN Foundation is pleased to be able to recognize care providers in this way to ensure our champions, supporters, heroes and life-savers know the immense impact they have on those they are privileged to serve.
“When [patients] honour us through the Honour Your Hero program, they touch our hearts and really make us feel valued. When patients give back, they encourage us to keep going, but I also feel a sense of responsibility to make sure their donations make an impact.“Meeran Manji, Registered Nurse and patient co-ordinator, Pulmonary Rehabilitation Clinic, Toronto Western Hospital
