The motto of the Trauma Golf Classic has always been, “Today you have made a difference”. That difference is real and tangible. It can be measured and seen in the lives of LHSC Trauma patients and their families. It can been seen in a look of gratitude and relief on the face of a patient’s loved one when they are told that their family member will be ok. Or in the smile of a patient when they receive the help and assistance they require.
The funds raised by the Trauma Golf Classic have provided much needed equipment and support to LHSC Trauma patients and families. For instance, this charity golf tournament is the sole supporter of the “Murray Girotti Trauma Patient Assistance Fund”. London Health Sciences Centre is a regional trauma centre and many of its patients live a great distance from our centre. Their families may face significant expenses such as travel and accommodation to remain in London. Patients may also require equipment or supports to be discharged from hospital. To alleviate this burden, the Murray Girotti Trauma Patient Assistance Fund has been established. This Patient Assistance Fund is intended to be used to assist patients and their families who are experiencing financial stress due to the impact of additional, extraordinary expenses related to hospitalization for traumatic injury.
The Trauma Golf Classic has also been responsible for:
Purchase of a 3DMD Imager. This machine allows LHSC plastic surgeons to accurately reconstruct Trauma patient’s facial features, limbs, etc.
Donation to Orthopaedic Surgical care....
