2020 was a different year for everyone, but Team “I WILL” faced the challenge head on and pivoted to help patients who needed it most. One of the ways that we pivoted was through our new event, the Past Patient Speaker Series, made possible by Will Davidson. This event was instrumental in the lives of patients at the Lyndhurst Centre as they face isolation due to the pandemic and visitor regulations within UHN.
This event has received incredible feedback from patients staff, speakers and sponsors. By popular demand Team “I WILL” will be continuing the virtual event on a quarterly basis!
- 4 events (May 2020, September 2020, December 2020 & March 2021)
- 115 total current patient participants
- 20 additional screens (consisting of Team “I WILL” community members & out patients) watching the event each time
- 14 total stories told by past patients of Lyndhurst
- 50 new “I WILL” statements created by current patients – for example Fred’s Story – “I WILL run with my grandsons and dance with my wife”
