At TB Vets you are an important part of our community, and we are honoured to share highlights from the past year and celebrate some of our accomplishments.
In this Annual report, we continue to share stories of those who are grateful for the medical care they received with TB Vets donors help. This includes a heartfelt account from brave parents with their tiny new born.
Also please see the TB patient story from Courtney Steen, a compassionate Recreation Therapist on the Tuberculosis Unit at Vancouver General Hospital.
We also recognize Dr. Steve Reynolds, Royal Columbian Hospital & SFU, research on the Lungpace system his team has explored and a note of thanks from Respiratory Technician students from Thompson Rivers University.
TB Vets is fortunate to have welcomed fantastic new members to the Board of Directors to help build on the tradition of excellence and deliver on our mission to sponsor lifesaving respiratory equipment to British Columbians of all ages, and to make a meaningful impact in the community while honouring our deep-rooted Veteran history.
