Linda De Luca

Mother of a patient

A generous gift in Martin's memory

Linda De Luca has volunteered for the Foundation since 2014, helping out with thank you calls, mailings, and recognition activities. She recently made the Foundation one of the beneficiaries of her estate, in honour of the excellent care her son, Martin, received at HMR and the dedication shown by the entire staff there.

Martin spent six months in the hospital under the care of Dr. Richard Gauthier, respirologist, and his team. Sadly, he succumbed to his disease.

While at HMR with Martin, Linda was able to appreciate firsthand exactly what the patients need and the direct impact of donations on the quality of care they receive. Today, her commitment and her financial support for the Foundation allow her to help other families in need, while honouring Martin’s memory.
