Marc Onana, patient at the HMR

I am lucky enough to see the world in glorious colors and to be able to keep a mental snapshot of the smiles I see each day, and it’s all thanks to contributors like you! Let me tell you my story.

One night while I was driving, my vision suddenly deteriorated. A doctor diagnosed me with glaucoma and prescribed some eye drops.

Ten years later, I had another attack and went straight to the emergency room at Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont (HMR)... If you’re like me, you know not to take chances with your eyes! And for good reason! They told me that I was one step away from losing my eyesight. Fully confident in their abilities, I agreed to the surgery they proposed. Despite the discomfort and the necessary aftercare, the benefits were so clear that I decided to have my other eye operated on without giving it a second thought.

Thanks to generous donors and the quality care I received, I can continue to work, enjoy my passions, and above all, I GET TO WATCH MY GIRLS GROW UP!

I sincerely thank you for helping the Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont (HMR) Foundation provide our hospital with the best possible equipment and the best education there is to its professionals.

Your support lets me enjoy life in full colors!
