You helped a young woman recover after a car accident

In a head-on car accident, Allyson Cross broke her right femur and sustained major ligament, artery, and nerve damage to her other leg. Her injuries required surgeries and stays in all three hospitals in Saskatoon, including three weeks at Saskatoon City Hospital’s Rehab department.

Décor and enhancements, supported by donors, made the experience friendlier and assisted her recovery, Cross says. “It was better for communicating with other patients, which was great because they’re the people who understand what you’re going through. Seeing paintings done by patients was inspiring.”
