January 15, 2018

A man who nearly died from aplastic anemia has shown his gratitude to the University of Alberta with a $3M donation to its hematology program. CBC reports that Marshall Eliuk nearly died from the disease in 1999 before being treated at University Hospital in Edmonton. Louise Larratt, a clinical hematologist at the University hospital, says that the funds will be used to develop a patient-family room for those with extended stays at the hospital, to create an area for doctors and teachers to interact with patients, and to provide grants. CBC
