To our front-line heroes...

Thank You

Now more than ever, it is imperative that we come together to support our hospital and those on the front-lines.We asked donors to send in notes of gratitude, along with their gifts, to recognize and thank the teams at LHSC for working tirelessly to keep our community safe and healthy.

After receiving hundreds of responses, this is just a small amount of what our donors had to say...

You are soldiers without limits. You are soldiers that put others first. You are women and men with big hearts. ♥

You are brave beyond belief and each one of you is worth your weight in gold!

Hats off to all our front-line workers. What would we do without all of you?

The Grimmincks 
♥ A huge thank you to each and every person on the front-line. Your dedication is always appreciated; especially now!♥

This is the first time in history that all the worlds are fighting together to win this battle! ‘Stay safe, stay strong, stay home’ are the new battle cries. Bless everyone who answers the call.

Thank you doesn’t seem enough, compared to what you have all been doing. Absolutely awesome!

God bless you, everyone!!! Stay safe!!! Still banging our pots and pans daily at 7:30 pm from Markham, Ontario. Hope you can hear them! ☺

Thank you for your hard work on the front lines. We really appreciate what you do on an ordinary day, let alone coming in with extra duties to keep everyone safe!!

Carol & Harvey 
Thank you for the tremendous dedication and effort in fighting this COVID-19 virus and saving so many lives. Without you, I couldn't imagine where we would be.

Shalom and blessings to you and your family and friends! Thanks so much for all your hard work, compassion, and long hours away from home! You are heroes!!! Stay strong! Don't get discouraged! Hang in there!

You are the most vulnerable people during this pandemic. Your long hours and dedication to your patients is remarkable; actually amazing! My heartfelt thanks goes out to each and every one of you!

Thank you, thank you, thank you. A million of these wouldn’t be enough to let you know how much your dedication, long hours, caring means. I can’t think of or write down all the wonderful things you have done for Londoners and area. Take care.

We appreciate you so much! We are all able to stay safe and healthy because of all you do. All the best to you and your families. ☺

To the great new heroes in our life, the front-line workers, wherever you are; it’s my pleasure and honour to write to you. We didn’t know enough about you until we faced this pandemic. You took the hit on our behalf. Thank you.

To you, the angels of life, who step into the line of defense on our behalf, without knowing what or when your health may be compromised. Thank you for your devotion in protecting us.

Ev & Earl 
You strengthen the spirit of everyone you try to help. You heroically tackle the unknown, while research tries to define it.

There aren’t enough words to say. Thank you for going above and beyond doing your job and being away from your loved ones. You have our utmost gratitude and respect. God bless you.

A big thank you to all front-line workers for doing their best to keep everyone safe. Very much appreciated. Stay safe and keeping you all in my prayers.

To all who are dedicating their lives to help the ones who are infected with the virus, I am greatly thankful for all the care you are doing to them. Our prayers are with you, stay safe and we love you. 

A Very Thankful Person 
To our heroes on the front line, including all those behind the scenes, assisting in the battle against COVID-19 to keep us healthy and safe, our heartfelt appreciation and thank you. In return we will do our part to stay home, distance, wash our hands and stay safe.

You are so appreciated! I can’t imagine putting on all that equipment, day after day, and still doing your job with a smile and sympathy for the very sick. You are my heroes!

Words cannot begin to express the debt of gratitude we owe you. You risk your life daily to save ours. When this is over you will always have the memories of how you were heroes to so many people. You were there for our loved ones when we couldn’t be. Forever in your debt.

Thank you for all you do, your hard work, long hours, many days away from family. I pray every night for COVID-19 to be removed out of this world. It’s an emotional toll on you all.

I can’t even imagine what you go through every day. I’ll continue to pray for all you wonderful, brave people.

Thank you for your dedication! Everyone has a new respect and should show gratitude towards all of you!

I had multiple appointments and two surgeries there in 2019 and have nothing but amazing things to say about the care and support I received from everyone there. THANK YOU. 
I love you. Thank you. You’re the best.

Stay healthy.

An Old Fart
Many thanks from our family for all you are giving to keep us safe. We also realize that your families are also giving so much while you expose yourselves to the virus.

Joanne & Gary
There are few words one can use to describe our gratitude for all that you do, other than to say “thank you”! Please stay safe! 

To all concerned – In Canada, we are so blessed to have London Health Sciences Centre. You have served family members in the past, with wonderful results.

We want to thank you for your bravery and dedication in the face of this terrible disease. You truly are heroes. We love you.

The Tye Family

Larry & Bonnie
What would we do without you? Your stalwart courage, dedication and personal sacrifices are what’s getting us through this. My heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

My husband and I have both received great care from the London medical community in the past year. Thanks for taking risks for people like us.

Nancy & Don
Living in a senior home, my gift is not large, but it comes from the heart. All of you Doctors, nurses, PSWs, porters and too many others to mention. You have my utmost respect and gratitude for all you do, day and night, to help and care for all of us.

You never think it’s going to happen to you, but when you do get sick and have to get tested, it’s so nice to know that there are kind, caring, and friendly people like you to help!

Kim & Dave
You are the ultimate caregivers. Your bravery is infinite. We are here and safe due to your commitment to the sick. Thank you! Thank you!!

Lindsay & Linda 
It takes courage to put yourself out there as you are doing day in and day out. Please know that you are appreciated and have our most heartfelt thanks.

Your names have been written on our hearts in gratitude for your energy, compassion, skills, and endurance you show every day.

Our family would like to thank you all for the passion and dedication you give to everyone where it’s needed. We know there is a lot of good people around. God bless you and keep safe.

The Gocan Family 
In my mind, you’ve always been admired for your dedication to your chosen career and to your patients. But now you are heroes for continuing to help us despite risking yourselves.

Thank you for your dedication to your profession and the people you are helping. Sometimes it may seem too overwhelming and you may feel unappreciated, but I am very thankful for your service.

A Grateful Citizen 
Thank you. We are so fortunate to live in this country with so many giving how they can in this time of need.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for keeping us looked after during this horrific pandemic! Be safe yourselves!

The Graydon Family 
What would you do if we didn’t have the front-line workers? Thanks to all of you. 

As a retired RN, I think I understand the sacrifice you all are making to help others. Wish I was young enough to jump in beside you! Thank you all.

Thank you for being dedicated, caring and professional. As a retired R.N., having been front line during swine flu, bird flu, H1N1 and others, I can only imagine all your sacrifices. This is a virus the likes of one we haven’t seen in 100 years. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Stay safe.

Jim & Dana 
A hero is someone who puts others before themselves. A hero is someone who shows great courage. You are appreciated. You are respected. You are amazing!

The Moyer Family 
We could not get through this without you! Bless you for being the great people that you are!

Thank you for your dedication to your profession and your families' understanding!

Heather & Mike
Everyone appreciates the sacrifices that you are all making. Your struggle will not be forgotten. You can be very proud of yourselves.

What we do without front-line workers? Having spent a few weeks there last year, I was very impressed with the care I was given. So, God bless you add and THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

We are the proud grandparents of a PSW and a R.PN. who, like you, are also on the front-line. We cannot express how thankful we are to have such wonderful people looking after us. Your work and compassion are appreciated by both of us.

Mary & Shawn 
Your dedication to the healing of others, at the risk of you and your families, not only in this pandemic, but at all times is appreciated. I THANK YOU and all the other staff that makes this possible for all of us. I wish I was able to help in some way but I am not able to. God Bless.

Vous faites du beau travail. Merci de tout coeur!

Barbara & Gerard 
Healthcare workers are not all heroes by default; that would be silly. But to those who have served despite personal risk, worked well as a team and care for patients selflessly, I salute you and I thank you! 

I was diagnosed with lung cancer last October and went through treatment between Christmas and New Year’s. Thank you, front-line workers, for your commitment while saving my life. 

Thank you for being able to use your skills and knowledge while putting yourself in harms way to combat COVID-19. You are much loved. 

Just a note (such a small thing), to say a huge thank you for your dedication, caring and commitment to the patients at LHSC. In appreciation for these long hours. 

Gerald & Jeanette 
All of you are awesomely brave and dedicated to helping the sick and sacrificing your own health and safety. We owe you by doing our part. 

Since I visited Emergency myself last week, I can only thank one and all for the help and care you give your patients. Your efforts and commitment are greatly appreciated. Keep up the great work.

I would like to give my thanks to all the front-line workers for all they do day and night shifts. It’s very much appreciated by everyone.
